Sometimes the simplest ideas turn out to be the best. One of the projects we are working on here at Momentum is Frugal Innovation. This is both a mind set and a series of techniques that enables entrepreneurs to innovate despite resource constraints.

In simple terms Frugal Innovation helps people understand the need for innovation in their communities or business and empowers them to find a way with limited funds.

During our research of Frugal Innovation we came across 22-year old Maithili Appalwar who came up with a simple idea to help the water crisis in India.

Maithili has founded a business to create affordable solutions that pull Indian farmers out of hunger and poverty. The flagship project is an affordable water conservation product, which has so far conserved 200 billion litres of water. This is a fantastic achievement especially in such a short amount of time.
