Why Cleantech

The sustainability industry is the world’s fastest growing business sector. Not just globally, where the sector’s revenues could top $4 trillion this year, but also in India, where EAI estimates that the total sector could have revenues of over $165 billion!

With both central and state governments providing increasing policy support (e.g., the National Solar Mission), we expect these industries to see sustained growth in future. Many domains within cleantech also have export potential (e.g., organic foods) making them very attractive to entrepreneurs.

Finally, many technologies within cleantech are at a nascent stage, providing opportunities for smaller entrepreneurs whose speed and flexibility allows them to quickly tap emerging markets.


Each Clean Boot will have a maximum of 25 participants, first-come first-served. Hence, if you are interested, please quickly send a note to consult@eai.in with the title CleanBoot Participation, or call or SMS ‘CB’ to 09677231570.
