The Anjani Mashelkar Inclusive Innovation Award is an annual award of ₹100,000 given to an individual or an organisation for a prototyped innovation or a commercialized product or service. The innovation must address the problems faced by the disadvantaged resource-poor people in India and offer an original and implementable solution.
This award presents an opportunity to spur and fuel innovation for the benefit of the most disadvantaged sections of society in order to ‘include’ them into the mainstream. The awardees will preferably be those who believe not just in ‘best practices’, but in ‘next practices‘. Most importantly, it will value solutions that represent ‘affordable excellence‘, breaking the myth that ‘affordability’ and ‘excellence’ cannot go together.
As the award grows in stature and gains national recognition, it will endeavour to leverage support for the innovator from various other private and public sector organizations.
Applications compliant to parameters of ASSURED framework would be preferred. (to know more – http://www.mashelkar.com/blog/194-dismantling-inequality-through-assured-innovation )
