What is the inspiration behind your business?

Growing up in South India, I experienced firsthand the devastating effects of floods on our communities. Every monsoon season brought fear and uncertainty as heavy rains inundated our villages, destroying homes, crops, and livelihoods. I witnessed families displaced, struggling to rebuild their lives amidst the wreckage left behind by the floods.

These experiences left a profound impact on me, igniting a sense of urgency to address the growing threats posed by climate change and natural disasters. I realized that we needed innovative solutions to mitigate the risks and enhance resilience in flood-prone areas. It became clear to me that simply reacting to disasters was not enough – we needed proactive measures to protect our communities and environment.

Over the next five years, our vision is to scale our solution globally, expanding our reach to vulnerable communities worldwide and becoming a leader in the field of climate-resilient infrastructure. We aim to achieve widespread adoption of our technology, making a significant impact on flood management and environmental sustainability on a global scale

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

The biggest challenge we’ve faced so far is navigating the complexities of regulatory approvals and securing funding for large-scale deployments. However, these challenges have also presented opportunities for learning and growth, prompting us to refine our strategies and build stronger partnerships to overcome obstacles.
