Company Profile, Products & Technologies, Target Market:

Multi-disciplinary design services company with a footprint in India and now Singapore. Design Facilitator under Spring, Singapore. We have worked across Industry segments such as Consumer Goods, Home Appliances, Medical Devices, Banking and Food Services.

Brief description of proposed R&D project:

There is a latent need for a light, appropriate head gear for drivers of two wheel motorized vehicles. Conventional helmets have been designed for road and environmental conditions that are different from the emerging countries. Elephant has conducted design research and based on insights gathered from this, have come to early protoypes for such a concept. We seek to collaborate with a company to bring this concept to commercialization.

Role of Requesting Company in Proposed R&D Project:

We would like to take this concept to commercialization. We would like to focus on further design research, refine the designs that we have worked on, build prototypes and then work on the features, styling and accessories to make this a relevant and preferred choice.

Desired Profile of R&D Partner and its role in the proposed project:

We seek a partner with a good understanding of materials (e.g. paper/corn pulp moulded materials or bio-degradable plastics) of construction and newer alternate materials. They could contribute towards the final engineering phase of the project or the prototypes and testing.

"The SIIRD mechanism provides a unique blend of funding to defray R&D costs and partnership with Israeli companies. The partnership with CET in Israel created immense synergy through their deep knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm.  For these reasons, SIIRD has a unique value proposition that is difficult to replicate even using other government funding mechanisms."
