OUR BET: The most creative ideas sprout in extreme conditions.
Tired of the constant flow of bad news?
Feel like everyone’s saying the world is broken beyond repair?
We’re here to restore your faith in humanity!
Passionate individuals are working every day to reshape the world with crazy ideas, determined creativity and a belief for change.
In India, the biggest challenges are met with the most inventive solutions. Amidst the country’s large population, social divides and blindness rates, entrepreneurs are coming up with new ways to tackle issues that matter.
We have selected 25 inspiring men and women to meet over 25 days across India. We will share their stories and ideas with you in a documentary and a series of short videos.
RESHAPING THE WORLD FOR TOMORROW
Consuming energy efficiently, implementing emerging technologies, solving traffic congestion, self-sustaining on few resources, empowering Indian women, rethinking community structures—they’ve seen it all! Entrepreneurs who respond to extreme conditions can inspire us to see our own issues in a new light. With intercultural exchange, our futures are built together.
Help us spread important ideas!
OUR JOURNEY: 25 DAYS, 25 ENTREPRENEURS
Over 25 days, we will travel through 9 cities, to meet the 25 we’ve selected.
