aim2flourish_sf2Our Full-time MBA students participated in AIM2Flourish: an international, UN supported platform for sharing stories about business innovations that create value for both business and society. Business students around the world are participating in AIM2Flourish and using Appreciative Inquiry (strength-based interviews) and the UN Global Goals as a lens to search out and report on world-changing innovations. 

The story from TIAS Full-time MBA students about Global Goal #8 was awarded as the best entry in 2022.

As part of their mission to demonstrate the power of Business as an Agent of World Benefit, each year AIM2Flourish honors the best-of-the-best stories with 17 Flourish Prizes - one for each UN Sustainable Development Goal. The Prizes recognize the accomplishments of the student author(s), the professor who oversaw the story’s publication, and the business leader interviewed for the story.


The winning TIAS story was selected for Global Goal #8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth, with the project Conserve India: Upscaling Plastics and Livelihood of Grassroots Communities, written by Arjun Madathil and Pavithra Radhakrishnan under the direction of Mirjam Minderman

Conserve India was established in 1998 as an NGO, and it emerged as a social entrepreneurship company in 2004. Conserve has developed a proprietary handmade process for transforming everyday plastics like bags, chips packets, and biscuit wrappers into "Handmade Recycled Plastic," a novel fabric that may be used as a form of vegan leather, for fashion accessories, home furnishings, and even to make low-cost housing tiles.
