Our humble origins began as a silly project that we took up during our final years of college. Being bike riders ourselves, the idea of a product that could conveniently provide protection in all weathers fascinated us. As we worked on it, we realized all the intricacies involved in building a truly useful product. There were too many constraints on strength, size, temporary fitment and the need for on-demand protection. For over 3yrs, we have persistently designed, built, tested and failed numerous times. Finally, with all our learnings we have developed Sepal that has come to be the embodiment of needs & desires of millions of bike riders.
Have always been a tinkerer and serial innovator. During my time at IIT Bombay, I served as Technical councillor, Technical Secretary and Competitions Manager of AAKAAR. I have an active interest in developing unique products and took part in several national and international tech competitions. I have also had the pleasure of interning at University of New South Wales, Australia and McMaster Unviersity, Canada. Towards the end of my under-graduation, I was offered admission to Stanford University which I let go to build products for the Indian market
