Product Development Journey
Unleash your creative side and become our influencer.
A great idea is often like a child — it takes an entire village to raise one. We are strong believers in the power of communal problem solving. That's why we also have this open source innovation and development space where we form, storm and maybe build few products together. Step right in if it lights your creative side and join our discussion forum below. If you see something you think can be better with a tweak of some kind, pipe up! If the rest of us think it's a great addition, you are sure to be showered with our gratitude and generosity.
Great leader and innovator who has inspired millions -
Most of us know, the things that start from the heart are the most risky endeavors. Perhaps because the path ahead is murky and shapes as one endures the unpaved path. Those are the journeys that bear the yoke of this world's future, those are the trials that will be the hallmark of life and living.
At mindwatts, we are passionate about creating things, and brining kindred spirits together. As people who grew up in different parts of the world, we understand the opportunities and challenges out there. And it ain't easy for anybody, but yet there is great hope and even greater opportunities everywhere. In product development and life in general, our motto is simple: when others ask why, we ask — why not?
After several grateful years in Medical Device industry, leading pan company initiatives in product development, integration, post-market quality and healthcare solutions, we kicked off mindwatts in 2016 to launch exciting consumer products and to have that direct engagement with the end user. We are always learning new things and calibrating to market needs. We work every day to do things that are meaningful and fulfilling in life. And we want to do this with authenticity and transparency from the get-go, so when things are said and done, you may remember the work but you will definitely remember the people behind it. Anything less, just wont cut it.
