IN­NO­VA­TOR

Tehelka - - DEATH AND DISEASE -

VIVEK NAIR MAY al­ready be a

se­rial in­no­va­tor and en­tre­pre­neur at 23, but his in­volve­ment with car­bon nan­otubes started en­tirely by ac­ci­dent, when he stum­bled upon the sub­ject at a sem­i­nar. To­day, it’s a ca­reer choice even as he con­tin­ues his ed­u­ca­tion (he’s cur­rently

study­ing for a dou­ble doc­tor­ate at Sin­ga­pore’s Nanyang Tech­no­log­i­cal Univer­sity as well as at the In­sti­tute of Sports Re­search). He also founded Da­m­as­cus For­tune, a start-up that has a host of patents pend­ing for their pro­pri­etory FlueTube

tech­nol­ogy, as well as de­vel­op­ing new tech­nolo­gies with part­ners in the auto in­dus­try, among oth­ers.
