Opportunity: Hemplanet was born in Auroville, a 50 year old intentional, international community in south east India, with a current population of 3000 people from over 50 countries.
One of the many founding ideals was that the emerging township should become self-sufficient. Hemplanet’s aim is to help transition Auroville into a hemp-based economy, where the farmers can grow hemp, Hemplanet will process into raw materials and the existing manufacturers can produce N number of end products / uses.
Company Principles: Hemplanet’s founders, Tom and Sasi both with film-making backgrounds and residents of Auroville, saw the potential of hemp to build a sustainable future for the town they lived in and loved.
