Transforming Rural India through Practical Education with Zero2Maker Framework

“We believe that it is possible to create thousands of entrepreneurs tomorrow by instilling an entrepreneurship mindset and skill set in children today. We apply the framework developed by Prof. Rajesh Nair to create transformation in individuals and the community. His research experiments at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Asia School of Business have shown that innovators and entrepreneurs can be nurtured by the general population. This framework to prepare pre-entrepreneurs, who are ready to take on their next steps in solution creation and venture building, has been applied in more than fifty workshops in seven countries reaching more than two thousand participants.” Says Rajesh Nair.

“A nurturing ecosystem exposes the community to new ideas, encourages them to try things, supports them when things fail, and inspires them to reach higher. New members join and the group grows and stays sustainable.”

PROF. RAJESH NAIR, Founder of Zero2Maker.

How Ecosystem Development changes the community?​

It takes an ecosystem to raise future innovators and entrepreneurs. An Ecosystem that consists of a Community (mentors and peers), Resources (tools and materials), and Place (space to meet).  amplifies the effect of collective learning, and it attracts new members helping it grow and stay sustainable.
