The founders managed the company with this small cash investment for about three years by utilizing different supports from the government agencies and industrial partnership, until the first sale of its key product, GISS Unit in 2012. During this time, the founders had to go through various obstacles because of the lack of financial supports. So, it took them about three years to develop the first GISS Unit.

The founders utilized the supports from the University Incubation Center to help them to achieve the first sale of the GISS Unit and to accelerate its sale to the international market.

    Mr.Kranthi Kiran Vistakula, Dhama Innovations Pvt. Ltd. (India)
    Kranthi’s passion for innovation led him to pursue his masters at MIT, USA. While there, he led a NASA-sponsored research project to generate electricity, using proteins for space applications. At MIT, Kranthi was troubled by the inconvenience of piling on layers of clothing to combat the frigid winters, only to take them off the minute he stepped inside the warm university indoors. Rather than dismissing this daily hassle, he set out to innovate ClimaCon® – a wearable cooling/heating technology that could keep the wearer’s body temperature at a comfortable level irrespective of the ambient weather. Kranthi had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and he had already won US$ 3000 from MIT business plan competitions for ClimaCon®. Besotted by his idea, he came back to India to found Dhama Innovations. He presented his idea to the Indian Government and won a grant of US $ 95,190 to pool into his business. During early development, ClimaCon® was a crude concept from a technological and design viewpoint. Kranthi faced several challenges to make ClimaCon® wearable. These involved decreasing device’s weight, increasing efficiency, and designing it to better conform to the human body. With his team of NID and IIT designers, he carried out several prototype iterations, and brought the weight down from 8 kilos to 800 grams, making it slim, pliant and compatible with rechargeable mobile-phone batteries. His next challenge was to market the innovation. Kranthi tackled this by focusing on the US medical device market, with the advantage of high consumer awareness and already existing distributer networks.
