Arun Cherian • TEDxBocconiUMumbai
The Art of Frugal Innovation
Adversity defines this era of complexity and limited resources. Indians have learnt to embrace this adversity and convert it into opportunity through frugal innovation. Consider Arun Cherian's tryst with prosthetic limbs made out of cane - frugality is essentially about developing radical solutions when faced with scarce resources and institutional voids. But, it's not just about making things cheaper, it’s about appropriate and scalable innovations. Through this talk, Arun illustrates that sometimes the most complicated problems can often be solved using the simplest of materials, albeit with a bit of human ingenuity.
