Frugal innovation is a mindset and innovation approach that has its origins in the developing world where amazing innovations and products are developed in the most difficult of environments. In this episode, you‘ll get to know numerous inspiring examples of frugal innovation from India, Africa and beyond. That said, the power of frugal innovation can also be harvested in the rich economies of the gobal North and be applied by small and large organizations alike.
