PROFILE

The big picture:
One hundred million smallholder farmers in India lose money from agriculture predominantly due to climate risks and climate change. So, in partnership with thousands of small farmers, Kheyti created Greenhouse in a Box — at 10% cost  — to help. It comes covered with insect netting and shading cloth. Its drip irrigation system helps farmers grow seven times more food at 1/50th the water. The organization also provides business and growing support to ensure farmer success. The potential for impact is significant  — and Kheyti is ready to grow and grow.

“Every time work I’ve been involved in has created opportunity —  a training program, a job offer, a new technology — I have seen that opportunity multiplied manifold. Creating those opportunities at scale is my passion and my purpose.” — Kaushik Kappagantulu, co-founder and CEO, Kheyti
