Rupin Chheda has a background in engineering, and is a tinkerer at heart. None of his childhood toys survived in one piece for more than 30 minutes! He was always curious to know what’s inside them. This curiosity led him to neatly unscrew all his toys and gadgets and explore what’s inside.
His life story has been about significant engineering failures, like building a 3D printer multiple times (and not succeeding even once), building softwares that no one ever used, or just generally fooling around with new things and systems. The larger idea has always been about building things without any preconceived notions of what success looked like. The absolute fun of creating is not being overwhelmed by constraints!
On the professional front, he has almost two decades of experience in the IT development and consulting industry, 0 to 1 startup scaling, and has served as Assistant VP for WhiteHatJr.
He currently leads the STREAM practice for the prestigious Kanakia Educational Institutions in Mumbai.
Rupin will facilitate the course on bio-inspired robotics in 2023.
