Yet another platform that emerged recently is Toru - the idea tree, a think tank and a ground for innovation and creativity. Earlier this month, Toru organised a 5-day long workshop, where 21 young people were encouraged to innovate and create social change for the better. The workshops conducted by Nazmus Saquib, a graduate student at MIT Media Lab. The innovations were finally exhibited at the city's EMK centre, where many attended and were left amazed at the ideas. Social problems can be solved by creating a platform for entrepreneurship to thrive, according to Saif Kamal, the founder of Toru. "Innovation is the key here," he says.
Check out the some of the brilliant ideas showcased by the future scientists, computer experts and innovators that Saif and his team have brought together.
