Incepted in the year 2006, the Innovation Awards, a biennial platform, has become the benchmark for recognition in the country with the most prolific leaders and thinkers coming together to handpick and recognize undiscovered innovations our country. This is the first of its kind platform that not only showcases the innovations, but also provides them access to relevant ecosystem stakeholders (such as investors, industry and business leaders) to help accelerate their growth journey.  

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Harsh Mariwala, Founder of Marico Innovation Foundation, said,  "Innovation is the bedrock that leads to positive change to create impact that matters. With the numerous challenges that we face as a nation and the fractured infrastructure in industries such as healthcare, agriculture and manufacturing there is an urgent need to create an environment that encourages risk taking behavior. At the same time, there is a need for a platform that applauds the strides innovators take in order to build disruptive solutions. Innovation is the only way for organizations to sustain and create meaningful large-scale impact. Our Foundationand by extension the Awards were instituted with this core belief."

It is their flight of success that has strengthened our resolve year-on-year to make the awards platform even more relevant and resonant with innovators in every part of India. As we embark on our 8th  edition of Innovation Awards this year, I encourage every innovator in the country to harness the power of this platform to catapult their growth and chart their own course to success."  

The Foundation has recognized select 60 innovations across all categories over the last 13 years. They have handpicked the next big innovations way before their time, making them a pioneer in recognizing unheralded innovations. For example -
