Speaking about the milestone, Olivier Loison, Managing Director, Alstom India commented, “Our contribution to sustainability is closely tied to the business we are in, which also makes it critical for us to take the lead in building and supporting the ecosystem we operate in. While we are bringing our vision of sustainable mobility to life through our business, we have also committed making active social investments to nurture startups who share our vision. On that note, it is heartening to see incredible work done by the selected startups and it has been a delight to partner with NSRCEL-IIMB, given their body of work in innovation, technology and sustainable mobility”.

Commenting on this event, Anand Sri Ganesh, COO of NSRCEL at IIM Bangalore, said, “The climate and sustainability spaces are still emerging. Knowledge networks, business models, funding, policy environment – all of these are still weakly defined. Yet we are staring at a crisis in climate change. At NSRCEL we are committed to injecting innovation to solve for these priorities at scale, through the lens of entrepreneurship. Alstom's commitment to the sector, and in supporting entrepreneurial innovation is an inspiration for other leading corporates to join the cause.”
