The perceptions and myths regarding the rural markets are being shattered today with the emergence of a new breed of rural youth & consumers – with urban levels of access to information, hungry talent looking for opportunities, entrepreneurial spirit

Sagar commented on Savings Mobilization - Modern Piggybanks

I like the idea of lockbox, it's simple and not at all sophisticated or complex but it really provides an easy incentive and motivation to save money.
I completely agree with your point of view about the challenges that MFIs or banks face when they go to rural communities. I read an awesome study by CGAP, done with IDEO on financial literacy when I was working with Accion as an IDEX fellow, here is the link if you want to explore more: http://www.cgap.org/publications/what-human-centered-design-means-financial-inclusion

Sagar commented on Design Accelerator Program

Hey Meena,
I created a sketch of how 'design' startup accelerator can because I was doing research study on Incubators and Accelerators. And I wanted to sketch an accelerator program which uses Design thinking and human centered design extensively. I want to implement it but I need people with whom I can work with and need constant feedback to improve upon this accelerator program because I am just 21, i really need passionate and empathetic leaders with whom I can work with.
But I am working on developing a curriculum for an intrapreneurship or experiential learning accelerator program for a start-up http://step-out.net/ which works on providing relevant internships with a societal cause because they believe if people can get true experiential learning in internships then they can be good entrepreneurs (generate employment ) or good intrapreneurs/infrapreneurs, etc.

Thanks for sharing the prototype toolkit. And yes I need to go the stakeholders brainstorm and make some lightweight prototype.

Sagar commented on The Facebook Farm to build young Kenyan farmers

Thank you so much for such an awesome post because I can really link with what I believe in-bringing farms back and bringing these rural people back from urban areas.
I believe in what Freeman Dyson said in “Social Justice and Technology” that we need to reverse the movement of people from cities to villages. People should have free choice between village and city and this can only be possible if wealth come back to village. And we can bring prosperity to village only by making new technologies available to everyone, to bring hope to poor.
