Better by Design wants kids to believe that the world is not something that they need to conform to.
The world can be moulded, chipping away at the way things were, whenever a child full of ideas come across inconveniences around them.
Born in 2014, Better by Design came together as an idea by Krishna and Soumeet. Having worked with innovators of all ages, they helped build the nation’s biggest incubation space for hardware prototyping, IKP Eden in Bangalore, and assisted the Government of Telangana in building a world-class prototyping facility, T-Works in Hyderabad.
Their efforts in uniting innovators and makerspaces led them to believe that innovation needed to start early. In 2014, they entered their idea for a innovation program for kids in Economic Times’ Power of Ideas Competition and left with a win!
Fresh from their win, Better by Design partnered with various schools including Riverside in Ahmedabad to set up makerspaces and document innovations by kids. Eventually, Krishna and Soumeet, set up base in Hyderabad, and took this program to their alma mater, Chirec International in 2014. This year, Chirec ranks #1 in Telangana for innovation.
