Nutrino Energy focuses on sustainable energy in India

From inspiration to innovation

Nutrino is one of the first spin-off companies started from the experience of the Nudge Global Leadership Challenge. Through consulting and capacity building, Nutrino Energy offers both technical and managerial solutions to those industries and companies which are keen on improving the economic and social prosperity of India. On his take-home from the Challenge, Kalpesh says: “The 3 days long Challenge provided me with the inspiration to work on various issues related to energy, poverty and security. The leadership lessons learned during the Challenge and peer group interactions empowered me to bring change in the community through sustainable innovations. After coming back home, I discovered my passion and started the journey of entrepreneurship  being certain that inspiration is a trigger to innovation.’’


Leadership is key in achieving global change

Kalpesh is an inspiring example of leadership at a young age: he started his own business from scratch which has achieved international recognition and awards in a short time. By the means of the Global Challenge, Nudge encourages leadership in the field of sustainability. On one hand it offers the possibility to young professionals of learning how to apply their entrepreneurship to bring change to society, while on the other it brings together companies that support the transition of the current models of business towards a more sustainable future.
