Creatnet started as an idea that organizations are networks.Its founders believed that the internet would change the way work and businesses got organized In its early years Creatnet educated businesses ( and government) on ways this could be done,provided web-strategy, modelled and ran a prominent B2B portal for the apparel industry.

Garima joined and founded the apparel sourcing practice An idea developed in Darshan- of a technology- enabled supply chain where partners could work more collaboratively and drastically improve lead times and effectiveness.

This initiated another phase- with with two more friends joining as co-founders – for a business vision of technology enabled sourcing management.
It got venture funding and the next 3 years were spent building the technology and business model. It did not work. The idea evolved -in the next phase – with Creatnet focussing on what the apparel brands wanted- Design, quick response and reliable supply.

Collaborative design process and supply chain development were the enablers Innovative niche brands were the natural partners Underlying these changes- was a growing realisation – that learning and growth, people discovering themselves, mutual purpose- is what makes an organisation.

The idea evolved further- with experiments in organisation design- of teams- here leadership, learning, values and common purpose are discovered and practiced, This means that – responsibility, trust, learning and listening are lived values.

Currently our teams do this by serving design driven brands in US, Denmark, UK, Germany,Brazil, Argentina and Australia.We design for social impact We also incubate ideas and initiatives that have social impact -currently in education, women empowerment and environment.
