These owners of Firefly Aerospace are the alumni of IIT Kanpur. While Chintalgiri, 26, has done M Sc in (integrated) physics, Agarwal, 28, pursued M Tech in mechanical engineering. At present, Firefly is involved in consultancy projects that do not require heavy initial investments. Chintalgiri and Agarwal hope to develop two unique products in two-three years and establish their business in the next four to five years.
