Deliver life-improving technologies to the people in India who need them most by developing innovative distribution channels embedded within existing local retail networks.
Diana Jue is COO and co-founder of Essmart, a distribution company for life-improving technologies in southern India. Before starting Essmart, Diana spent five years studying technology dissemination through her undergraduate and graduate studies at MIT. Throughout her field work in rural India and China, she realized that many community development initiatives were not achieving their intended impact because of poorly established distribution channels. She explored this further through her Master's thesis on social impact technology dissemination in rural southern India, which served as one of Essmart's research foundations. Diana's writing has been featured in other publications including the USAID Frontiers in Development, MIT Entrepreneurship Review, and Stanford Social Innovation Review blog. She has been awarded additional distinctions, including the Fulbright-Nehru Research Fellowship to India and multiple awards from MIT to pursue research and work on Essmart.
