Ziqitza Health Care Limited (ZHL) is an Emergency Medical Services company founded by five social entrepreneurs in India in 2002, which by 2012 operated 860 ambulances across five states. The case is focused on bribery, a problem in many parts of the world, but especially in India. It is highly topical given recent anti-corruption protests in India. It is also unusual (if not unique) because it was developed with the company’s participation (a taboo subject, bribery cases are typically “arm-chaired” or based on secondary sources). It provides not only a rich description as a basis for discussion of this difficult managerial issue—including how such solicitations typically arise—but also highlights the opportunities for organizations looking to respond appropriately and effectively to bribery requests.

The enterprise, Husk Power Systems (HPS), won many awards for its innovative business plan, social entrepreneurship, and for producing clean energy.
