Jaideep Prabhu, Jawaharlal Nehru Professor of Indian Business & Enterprise and Director of the Centre for India & Global Business (CIGB), and Navi Radjou, Fellow in India & Global Business, are recognised as members of the “next generation of business gurus” along with other thinkers from around the world – including the US, China, India, Spain and Germany.

Jaideep and Navi are co-authors of Frugal Innovation and Jugaad Innovation, books which look at how low-cost techniques and materials are transforming business. Ravi was a winner of the 2013 Thinkers50 Innovation Award.

Stuart Crainer, co-founder of Thinkers50, said the list offers “a smorgasbord” of great business ideas:

What is interesting is that ideas and thinkers are increasingly difficult to pigeon-hole into traditional categories like leadership and strategy. These thinkers are truly independent minded. They are driven by curiosity and innovation, and their work shows broad global ambition.
