Sustaintech promotes the use of healthier, sustainable-energy technologies by developing and selling energy-efficient cooking stoves to street-food vendors and commercial kitchens.

For 10 years, Svati Bhogle has headed a non-profit organisation, TIDE, that develops sustainable applications and technologies for grassroots entrepreneurs in India, namely wood-burning stoves. ‘I designed fuel-efficient household stoves that can make a serious impact. As a non-profit it was difficult to scale up in that market, however, yet to make the shift to a commercial market, you have to attract investors.’
