Innovation Lunch (with Fasiha Subhan) Impact Hub Waikato

We are one of the world’s largest networks focused on building entrepreneurial communities for impact at scale. We are home to the innovators, the dreamers and the entrepreneurs who are creating tangible solutions to the world’s most pressing issues.

We are here to help local impact entrepreneurs and aspiring changemakers, just like you, realise their dream and mission - offering the support, tools and inspiration needed to accelerate impact.

Innovation Lunch

Our Innovation Lunch is a brand new series of events designed to do exacly that. We want to spark innovation, and create a space were you can connect with likeminded others, be inspired by other impact entrepreneurs using their business as a force for good, and ultimately, supercharge your own impact.

On the first Wednesday of every month, from 12-1pm, we'll be serving up a dose of inspiration and energy - so grab your lunch, tune into our Zoom channel and enjoy the show!

Each event will feature a different guest speaker - and we're thrilled to announce that Fasiha Subhan will be joining us this month, to talk all things Frugal Innovation.

Defined as low-cost, good enough quality, yet high-value innovation, Frugal Innovation is largely designed to encourage and enable developed-market firms to innovate for underprivileged populations in developing markets - thereby helping to alleviate poverty in these areas. However, it is now considered an equally significant and relevant approach for innovating within developed markets, due to increasing resource scarcity and austerity caused by environmental changes, recession, and unprecedented times like Covid-19.

Alongside Fasiha - who is a a pioneer scholar of Frugal Innovation, we'll be deep-diving into the fundamentals of Frugal Innovation, and exploring how it can be used to create and capture value in emerging markets.

Keen to come along?

Epic, we can't wait to see you there!
