ThinkTank's May 2022 Innovative session
May 2022 introductory session of RisingIndia ThinkTank for Sustainable Entrepreneurship
RisingIndia ThinkTank’s May 2022 session on sustainable entrepreneurship was held on May 21, 2022, as part of monthly series of ThinkTank’s sessions every third Saturday
The session was started with an introduction of India’s first venture studio “RisingIndia ThinkTank”, which is with the ideology of Giving First popularly known as “TreeAndHumanKnot” has turned into a movement and currently extending its arms to 3 continents to reinforce Sustainable Living on Planet Earth.
TreeAndHumanKnot is consistently growing with the love of nature by nature lovers in India, Italy, and Peru with the plan to start soon in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The Idea emerged to connect people with Nature while embracing the values of commitment, consistency, and care for nature. It is no longer the responsibility of NGOs, social enterprises, the United Nations, or any government whereas now it has become the responsibility of every human who eats, breathes, or drinks on this planet.
The Global movement will now be turning into a Sustainability Network which will be accessible with tahk.in
We have observed people’s inclination to contribute towards Sustainability and being volunteer is actually a pride as people join the movement. In order to engage working professionals to learn and adopt a sustainable way of living, TAHK will be starting Sustainability Certification with a completely practical approach to experience (rather than being only for academic purposes) sustainability and how simple it is to achieve the same.

We also shared about how corporate lately got engaged with Green Washing for Sustainability and why it is necessary to have genuine work on Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting.
The Second vertical of RisingIndia ThinkTank “Consulting Cohort” aims to engage corporate and drive their efforts seamlessly towards Net Zero to meet their ESG norms. Read more about the welfare engine for corporate India on Consulting Cohort section of the website.
Third, Next Startup is the concept to focus on next startup on the premise of Sustainable Entrepreneurship which is to start innovative business on sustainable models on customer funding rather than creating pitch deck for early investments or funding.
Among various existing & upcoming ventures under Rising India Think Tank, one of the major ventures is Agri-Vaidic - an integration of 5 interrelated verticals namely as:
Agriculture & Farming: Taking forward Vaidic ways of farming & cultivation along with new-age technologies without losing the natural (sustainable) methodologies of cultivation, thus contributing to the agri-tech industry.
