About Us

How this initiative was born

Ideas for Goa is a platform that not only reignites our economy post COVID-19 but also helps create a Goa that is more prosperous, sustainable and inclusive than the status quo and is a shining example for the rest of India. This is born out of the belief real change happens only with free flow of ideas and bottoms up citizen empowerment.

We want to create a space and conditions to leverage people’s desire to participate for the greater good, give back to society in times of need, creativity and innovativeness to generate disruptive and exponential ideas that can be implemented quickly and sustainably. This platform is open to all to contribute ideas regardless of their background and is free of cost. Most importantly and best of all, ideas generated are available to everyone for free.

Join the movement to create Goa 2.0 by contributing your ideas, voting on ideas and spreading the word.
