Kranthi Vastikula, an MIT alumnus created an all weather jacket which ensures that you don't sweat in the Mumbai Summer (or the Sahara desert for that matter) and don't freeze to death if you were at the base camp of Mount Everest. In this podcast, he talks about his innovation and the challenges of commercialising it. He talks proudly about his closely knit 15 member team at Hyderabad who have been handpicked from engineering and MBA colleges, the National Institute of Design and the college from which he graduated. With The Indian Army as their Beta customers and the backing of his VCs, he plans to take his products to the masses.
