Director – Sankalp Forum, Aparajita Agrawal has been invited to join IDRC’s round table to discuss and deliberate how high-impact innovations can be taken to scale. A key part of Canada’s aid program since 1970, IDRC supports research in developing countries around healthcare, job creation etc.
Aparajita will join thought leaders like Aloka Majumdar of HSBC, Siddhartha Tata of Acumen Fund and Rustom Sengupta of Boond. Aparajita’s speech will center around presenting views from the enabling ecosystem around what’s available for innovators and their unmet needs.
The day long Summit will analyze tough questions around how to prioritize ideas suited for scale, share examples of best practices and hear from entrepreneurs on risks to their models and the ecosystem due to a focus on scale.
