“I WORKED FOR a server se­cu­rity firm re­port­ing to a gen­tle­man in the US; we used to catch hack­ers on­line,” says Shilpi

Kapoor. “He was much quicker than I but one day, a se­cu­rity is­sue came up that he would nor­mally ad­dress — and he didn’t. I did what was needed, then asked him what

had hap­pened, and I was stunned when he told me he was paral­ysed neck down and

had been us­ing a spe­cial tech­nol­ogy that en­abled him

to move the cur­sor by blow­ing air into a pipe. The tech­nol­ogy had failed him

that day, or I would ab­so­lutely never have known he was dis­abled. It made me de­cide I was go­ing to fo­cus on tech for the dis­abled.”
