NITI – New Initiatives for Transforming India
“…..changing minds to change people’s votes
bringing political change
bringing about the right policies for India’s development.”
Niti Digital, is a Digital Media Startup.
“My approach to Niti is that of an entrepreneur
think of the problem differently
see what out-of the-box, disruptive solutions are possible.
The constraint is time, not money……”
Rajesh Jain, Circa 2012.
Underlying each of our Digital Experiments has been a common line of thinking – to affect a bigger shift in what Rajesh refers to as the “Overton Window” on conventional thinking. Our Entrepreneurial Thinking challenged conventional wisdom during the 2014 Campaign through India272+.
Our next Big Idea is on shifting the Overton Window on the conventional thinking on the lack of a constituency for Economic Freedom, Limited Government, Politics of Prosperity and the kind of Reforms India needs.
Think of India 5 years from now with more than 600 million smartphone users and high speed networks. It is this Future India with a large neo-middle class that our next Big Idea aspires to engage.
If you are Inspired by our Vision of a Transformed India and are Passionate about Technology as an Agent of Change, join us in this journey to create the Digital Platform of the Future.
