Tales of Bharat - Issue #3
Wondering why? Now that most of India has learnt a new word, it might as well be included in our dictionary. Now that said, at D91 Labs we had the most eventful week since we started our lab. Here is a snippet into our past week and work :)

Design for Bharat - A workshop on Trust & awareness
D91 Labs, Facebook / TTC Labs and Parallel Labs organised a closed group workshop for fintechs in Bangalore to come together to solve for some of the promising opportunity statements for Bharat. We had more than 50 participants from Razorpay, PhonePe, Scripbox, Zestmoney, Cleartax, Smallcase, Flipkart and Facebook.
The participants were divided into teams consisting of designers, product managers, researchers and public policy experts to brainstorm on common challenges faced by fintech in India. The problem statements were enriched with our field research from ‘Decoding Bharat’ series.
The workshop was loved by all the participants and we were showered with well wishes and we look forward to organise more of this format. The work from the workshop will soon be published on D91 labs and TTC labs website.
Thats all of us :)

I hover inside the dilapidated house. The aroma of flavourful curries intermingled, with lingering whiff of cow dung escaping from the cakes left to dry on the rooftop, welcomes me. Seema comes out…
