Boond - Every Drop Makes a Difference

Posted 17 March 2015 by Eva Wissenz.

We are proud and honored to announce our partnership with Rustam Sengupta, Founder and CEO of Boond for the crowdfunding campaign we are launching in the next few weeks.

Boond is a social entreprise that promotes solar energy access in remote and rural parts of North India.

Rustam researches sustainable social enterprise design and implements his work first hand in the field. He is an expert in designing and data analysis for products and services for the poorest of the poor and also provides consulting to numerous universities and institutions on market entry and emerging market economics.

Boond has won a number of awards (Echoing Green Fellowship 2014, Economic Times Power of Ideas 2010, Nokia DLD Global Challenge, UN Women etc.) and more importantly has impacted the lives of over 50,000 people in remote villages in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Kashmir over the past two years.

Rustam believes in sustainable models for development and social impact and in addition to putting everything he has in Boond, also spreads the message of sustainability by teaching courses on social responsibility and climate change in Indian universities and consulting with international development agencies.
