NITI Ayog CEO Amitabh Kant has exhorted Indian corporates to find solutions to Indian problems.

"Indian corporates should find solutions to Indian problems. We need to innovate for water purification, renewable energy and efficient engineering," he said while participating in a four-day Business Leadership Intensive organised by Isha Academy.

Also, Kant spoke of some of the areas with unmet needs in the sub-continent, a press release from the academy said Monday.

The programme 'Isha Insight' saw an interaction with Isha founder Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on innovation, disruption, structural and economic transformation of India, the release said.

To explore new ways of business thinking and bringing in more consciousness into the status quo, over 200 corporate leaders, from 16 countries, including India, attended the leadership meet.

Former chairman of Murugappa Group M V Subbiah, Future Group founder and CEO Kishore Biyani and co-founder of Ola Cabs Bhavish Aggarwal were among the 221 corporate leaders who interacted on future business, the release said.

The participants took part in sessions wherein business learning from resource leaders got sharpened and steered through Sadhguru's visionary wisdom and delivered, it said.

One of the things Sadhguru spoke about success was that it cannot be taught: you can only teach a certain process; depending on their intensity, intelligence, involvement and of course the benevolence of time, success is a consequence, the release said.
