Nurturing Talents

Nurture grassroot talents by providing visibility


MAKER FEST is an informal local event typically organized by volunteers/change makers like you and me. From once to several times a year, small groups of like minded people gather local volunteers in their own community (university, neighborhood, village, apartment complex) and celebrate the makers they know.

Asha Jadeja Motwani
(Founder, Makerfest)

We believe that some makers may start small, but could have an enormous impact even globally.

For example : a tinkerer in the village of Chotila plays around with a few materials and designs and comes up with a fabulous local refrigerator – now widely adopted and recognized as Mittikool.

Two students and a professor play around with a hospital database and create new search algorithms and out comes Google.

In our own Ahmedabad an enterprising man from South Africa, and his friends decide to work with local industrialists to find a space, gather regularly and collaborate on how to free India from foreign rule.

FabLab Kerala

With the support of Government of Kerala, KSUM has started two MIT USA Electronics Fabrication labs each at Kochi & Trivandrum. A FabLab is a technical prototyping platform for innovation and invention which aims at providing stimulus for local entrepreneurship and serves as a platform for learning and innovation. The FabLab also becomes a medium for connecting to a global community of learners, educators, technologists, researchers and innovators – essentially becoming a self-sustaining global knowledge sharing network. The Fablab programme involves setting up state-of-the-art Fabrication laboratories in the state to encourage startups in printed electronics and other such fields. KSUM has associated with Centre for Bits and Atoms, MIT Fab Lab Foundation, USA for this. The two fablabs established in Trivandrum and Ernakulam are identical and mainly comprises of Hi-tech digital fabrication tools such as 3D Printers, CNC routers, PCB milling machine, Laser cutter, Vinyl cutter, electronics workbench etc.
