An evening event including talks, a panel discussion, startup pitches, and a networking session.

Frugal innovation is revolutionising business and reshaping management thinking. Developing countries need reliable products to solve very complex issues, and these products often need to do very simple, yet clever tasks. At our event, participants from business, industry and academia will explore the newest disruptive ideas being adopted in the developing world, the need for many companies to be based in developing countries, and how we can achieve a better, fairer and healthier world through technological innovation. Our speakers include:

Jack Lang, co-founder and Vice-Chair of Raspberry Pi.

Jaideep Prabhu, co-author of the acclaimed book “Frugal Innovation: How to do more with less”, published by The Economist.

Nalin Patel, head of the Winton Programme for the Physics of the Sustainability.

Richard Bowman, co-founder of Waterscope
