Here’s Great Tip: A Journey Through India: The Startup Nation | Nafisa Bakkar | TEDxUCL


Here is Something You Should See…


India has a population of 1.2 billion, in other words, 1 in 7 humans live in India. India is a developing country, facing a number of constraints from those in infrastructure to geographical and technological. Pair these two together and India is presented with a number of challenges and needs to do more with less. This very philosophy is what is accelerating India to leap-frog the world.

While studying Natural Sciences at University College London, Nafisa fell in love with all things entrepreneurship. Her journey started with leading a social enterprise consultancy. Nafisa then went on to work for UCL’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, helping students set up their own businesses, before finally taking the leap herself to found Amaliah. Amaliah is a social commerce fashion site for the modest fashion market. Nafisa was selected as one of 40 founders for the British Council’s Digital India Programme with IndoGenius. More recently Amaliah has gained a place on an accelerator starting in January 2016. @Nafisa_Bakkar

  1. For god's sake, please stop presenting India as if you understand it, only just because you have Indian ancestry. The facts you said are correct, but they can be sourced from Wikipedia. Your father moved to UK for a better life, but that didn't give you the luxury of living in India to experience it. You will never understand why anything happening in India happen in a way. You visiting India 15 times makes you a regular tourist, and nothing else. India is too complex to explain even for ones living here, let alone ones visiting. Indians are not resourceful just because of less resources, but that's how we are. Wikipedia facts are not worthy enough for TED.
