© 2017 IMC Inclusive Innovation Awards
An innovation that meets the test of “Affordable Excellence” is “Inclusive Innovation”. It means making available high quality products or services with affordable access for large sections of the society and while doing so, creating livelihood and access opportunities for the excluded population of the society on a sustainable basis.
Simply put, inclusive innovation means “more from less for more and more people”.
The aim of the Awards is to identify and support work of entrepreneurs, who are in the process of building enterprises that focus on products or services which are of high quality and yet, affordable and accessible to all sections of the society, especially those leading to growth and development of the population at the base of the economic pyramid, while ensuring commercial viability of the venture.
The Award eco-system seeks to recognize and catalyze the creation of enterprises addressing the theme of inclusive innovation.
