The Big Bets match-up meeting Make in India, but how?

The success of AMUL and more recently of distributed renewable energy enterprises, has demonstrated the positive impacts of promoting local, community-based production and distribution. This localisation promotes regional development, allows services to reach new populations and offers a unique opportunity for equitable, inclusive and sustainable growth.

This event, in association with Dalberg Group and supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, will explore ways in which such models can be supported to achieve scale with speed and sustainability, so that their impact on the SDGs may be amplified. It will be attended by over forty practitioners and thought leaders from creative manufacturing, health, energy, and water and sanitation sectors.
