Innovation Playground

Innovation Playground, supported by Tata Trusts, is set up to provide a platform for transformation of grass-root and futuristic innovation ideas into identity and sustainable businesses by providing them access to financial support from big corporates, knowledge support from industrial stalwarts and a professional management lens. We strongly believe this process would enable:

  1. Promotion and facilitation of social entrepreneurship among students.
  2. Sensitizing students to become socially responsible business leaders.
  3. Working alongside exceptional grass-root innovators and social enterprises to enable them to refine their ideas, scale their enterprises, and finally enable creation of sustainable real- world impact.

It will be a distinguished gathering where students from the leading B-schools will pitch their plans to convert a product idea into a business reality, and corporates and other eminent jury of TRBS will evaluate the ideas for becoming next big thing in India. In its inception year, Innovation Playground is set to create history of being a unique ecosystem translating grass-root ideas into reality.

Innovation playground will host “innovation runs” which will seek participation from people with diverse background. Innovation run will involve development of marketing, operations, finance and strategy components of Business plans of the innovation ideas.
