When Kerala-based engineer Nelvin Thomas set up his company, it coincided with the height of recession. Hence, he and his partners decided to concentrate on devices that would save money for companies. And, it was the beginning of an artificial intelligence-based power system that saves 40% energy, and has now won Thomas worldwide recognition. His product is all set to be marketed in the UK and the US. He is on his way to Finland to represent India as one of the top 50 global innovators, having been adjudged by the World Bank.
* Abhishek Sinha is no biologist, but he was always fascinated by the eco-system. No wonder, he took a fancy for neighbourhood retail shop, which markets everything from soaps to SIM cards, and decided to integrate that into a banking system. This helps a local grocer in rural India to become a human ATM, thanks to the use of a cellphone. Jointly founded along with his brother, his firm has signed agreements with State Bank of India and ICICI Bank.
