What is Frugal Innovation

Frugal Innovation is creating something out of less resources. It is used in countries like India and Africa where their resources are incredibly limited. These countries continue to create new things out of nothing like a cell phone charger that charges your phone by riding a bike. These inventions can help the world manage its resources while still giving people their needs and desires for the cost of less.

What is our Goal?

Developing Countries don't have as much benefits as people in Developed Countries. They don't have things that we take for granted like clean sanitation, electric power and clean water. As well as when natural resources slowly and slowly start to run out we need to create new ways to obtain new ideas to serve our everyday needs as well as help the developing world advance.

What Do We Do?

  • Create innovative ideas that would help benefit the Developing world.
  • Innovate using as little resources as possible.
  • Solve problems using Frugal Innovation
