The road leading to a successful entrepreneurship career doesn’t get built overnight. One has to thrive for it, every single day, or even night, to get there! We need a little motivation, inspiring stalwarts, and even some success stories that will boost our confidence in multiple folds. Today we are sharing one such success story of a technopreneur who is not only succeeding in his own venture but is also attending seminars and events so as to pique the interest of the new generation to become a technopreneur—Dr. Krishnarao Dhuri.
Technology & amazing solutions
A practitioner of physics and a mechanical engineer specializing in Dynamics, Controls, Optimization and Data science, Krishnarao has an eminent experience in working for interesting programs on energy and transportation at GE research. The algorithms that come with any product development to harness data for better solutions amazes Krishnarao.
An IIT Kharagpur graduate who pursued to complete his PhD at IIT Bombay, is a proud engineer who has experience in working with big companies such as General Electric (GE), Mahindra and suSOL to his credit. A major contributor in the Mathematical modelling, Controls and Optimization problems, Krishnarao recognizes working at GE to be a springboard for his career proficiency.
After working as a researcher at GE for more than 7 years, he continued his passion for physics by teaching grad-kids at CMR Institute of Technology, Bangalore. They say “Imparting knowledge is also a form of learning”, which was handy for him during his tenure working for CMRIT as an Associate Professor. He taught sort-after subjects of mechanical engineering such as Advanced Vibrations, Design Optimization, Smart Materials and Structures. Even as an educator, his true-calling was still research in mechanical engineering where he took many PhD students under his guidance.
The revolution behind Felidae Bikes
With so many of his years spent in research and reading the latest trends the theoretical world, he decided to take charge and came up with his own venture named Felidae Bikes!
A start-up in nature, Krishnarao’s Felidae aims to being easy commute, good health, and sustainability together. Promising to bring a sustainable change, Felidae presents eBikes to the enthusiastic riders. These eBikes aims to cycle towards a better tomorrow by reducing the carbon footprint on earth.
An indigenous technology developed in-house, headed by Dr. Krishnarao has a dogged determination of bringing these affordable two-wheeler to the Indian Market. Working on enhancing reliability using technologies such as controls and data analytics, Krishnarao and his team aims to spin the market of cycle with Felidae ebikes. With advanced controller, robust drive systems, and slope assist, these cycles offer top-notch features at an affordable cost.
He aims to make Felidae eBikes a great deal-maker for the citizens in India. Every person buying the cycle will take away a sense of responsibility as a human on the planet Earth, along with the cycle.
