TEAM

The force is strong with us

Our definition of team is slightly different than most. It’s what many at TeamIndus call the sages-and-warriors formula—young engineers from India’s best institutions guided by the combined expertise of the nearly twenty ex-ISRO scientists, who’ve worked on landmark ISRO projects ranging from the first Indian satellite Aryabhatta to Chandrayaan.

An IIT Delhi alumnus, Rahul has extensive experience in systems design and development, with expertise in a diverse range of technologies across multiple industry verticals. He has always wanted to do something for the enhancement of humankind and the Google Lunar Xprize has helped him realise his calling in life.
