Divyanshu Poddar has work experience of ISRO, Behind Story Of This Startup in 2015 Divyanshu conducted his first rocket workshop in one school after that Divyanshu and his friend is only flying rocket models. then even don’t know where they wanted it to go.“we could have turned it into propulsion systems for rockets or an toy company or just a k12 & robotics edtech company”, Divyanshu said.
The startup idea shaping event happened in March 2016 when Divyanshu meet Anirudh Rastogi founder of TRA Law & Abhishek Raju [ Space & NewSpace industry architect ] they help Divyanshu to realise the potential of this StartUp.
In Presence, even the Startup has not Spent Money on Marking. there are many companies in the same domain, Team Indus, Bellatrix Aerospace, Dhruv Space, Astrome Technologies, SatSure, Earth-2 Orbit and other start-ups.
Thisis the “The Era of Second Wave of Exploration”.
There are many challenges in this sector because there are very few safety, compliance guidelines and unclear law about rocketry in India. if we compared the rocketry in the US nation there are drafted safety and compliance guidelines about rocketry.
Their only a few people who know and understand the space sector. so it becomes a difficult job for the start-ups to pitch their idea to the investors.
