Founders of five startups presented their ideas at Adani Group’s third edition of ‘Green Talks,’ an event that provides a platform to social entrepreneurs to develop their ideas and bring them to fruition.
‘Green Talks’ is a nonprofit open platform that unites the global network of social enterprises that are bringing about broad transformation to accelerate progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 2023 edition of the programme provides a platform to entrepreneurs who are making a fundamental difference to Bharat through their innovative solutions aimed at the betterment of humanity.
Among the startups that attended this year’s event were Dveck Mobility, which has developed a device that can be bolted on any bicycle to convert it into an EV in minutes, and Haqdarshak, a social impact focused tech organization that is working towards making access to government welfare schemes easy and transparent.
Other startups include Marut Drones, which makes smart drones that can be used in several farming applications from seeding to harvesting, ONergy Solar, which is working towards making solar solutions affordable and accessible to all, and PRESPL, which provides green and sustainable biomass solutions.
Speaking about the initiative, Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani said, “Today, the ability of an organization to learn is its biggest differentiator. And the best way to learn about technology is to immerse oneself in the field of startups. The Adani Group welcomes startups to use us as a sandbox to deploy their solutions.”
Adani Group has earlier worked with startups like iKure, a healthcare innovator that provided services in the Sundarbans, prosthetics technologist RoboBionics and Megha Gupta’s dharavimarket.com, a social enterprise focusing on the holistic development of the craftsmen and residents of Dharavi.
The first edition of ‘Green Talks’ was held in 2021. In 2022, the Adani Prize for Social Enterprise was announced to be awarded to five outstanding social entrepreneurs for their impact in India and other parts of the developing world. The prize money included a total of INR 5 crore in funding for the chosen social enterprises.
‘Green Talks’ has been designed as a space for open-source innovation, a forum for unrestricted discussion, and an incubator for concepts that could lead to long-lasting societal change.
