Innovation advocate

Evidyalay team is so excited to reach to each and every school in Gujarat. Although our dream is

1) Offline version of EVidyalay in every Govt. schools.
2) Quality educational DVDs with each textbook.

eV journey has just began, but soon we will communicate with prof. Gupta. Who will help us reaching each and every school in Gujarat and will give us feedback from students, teachers and parents.

To know more about prof. Gupta (Innovation advocate) (IIMA) you must watch his speech at TED.

Looking to the poor of India, business professor Anil Gupta saw innovations and talent that were not being supported. In response, he started the Honey Bee Network and began searching the country with colleagues, often on foot, finding a myriad of inventions developed out of necessity. These discoveries are documented and often shared with the global community, just as pollen is gathered by the honeybee to the benefit of both. Since 1988, the network’s database of original inventions has grown to over 12,000, and its newsletter is now published in eight languages and distributed to 75 countries.

Gupta also worked with the government of India to establish the National Innovation Foundation, which holds national competitions to encourage new inventors and helps sustain them through the National Micro Venture Innovation Fund. Through his efforts, Gupta has uncovered groundbreakingly useful devices such as a pedal-operated washing machine, a micro-windmill battery charger, a hoe powered by a bicycle, and many more.
