Cartier today announced Indian Entrepreneur, Trupti Jain, as the 2017 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards Asia-Pacific laureate. Trupti received her award at the programme’s annual Award ceremony, held in Singapore for the very first time.
Trupti Jain created Naireeta Services, which addresses the issues of drought and flash floods destroying farmers’ crops. It provides handmade water management solutions enabling small farmers to filter and store rainwater in the underground to become independent from extreme weather conditions and dry periods.
Cyrille Vigneron and Ilian Mihov announced six laureates selected by an independent international jury amongst nearly 1900 applicants from over 120 countries.
In addition to receiving a year of personalised mentoring, valuable media visibility and expanding networking opportunities, each 2017 laureate will be granted a place on an INSEAD Executive Program (ISEP). This year, the prize money awarded to each laureate’s business has been increased five-fold from US$ 20,000 to US$ 100,000 in recognition of their contribution to finding innovative solutions for a sustainable future.
