STARTUP: Hardware Product Planning Essentials For Start-ups And SMEs
Most start-ups and SMEs assume the prototype can be quickly converted to a regular product, with little effort, which is a fallacy. Converting a prototype or an early-stage version to a manufacturable product takes lots of effort, time, and money
STARTUP: Sourcing Hints That Start-ups And MSMEs Can’t Afford To Neglect
When should a start-up start planning sourcing of the components for their products, and how can they ensure that they get the components that they need on a regular basis, without any break, and at the right price? These are some of the things that are important for any manufacturer, but more so for a new start-up or MSME
STARTUP: How You Can Market Your Brilliant Product Without Spending Fortune
There is, undoubtedly, nothing bigger than creating a good product which, after all, is the crown jewel of a start-up. But just creating a brilliant product without making its existence known to the world defeats its purpose
STARTUP: Feeling Lost While Building Your Start-up? Consider Taking A Mentor’s Help

MY STORY: “The Most Important Lesson In Life Is Learning To Lose Gracefully” — Saurabh Kumar, Executive Vice Chairperson, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL)
It takes a lot of guts to seek a warrant to conduct income tax raid on a person who is the 150th most wealthy person in the world, and the guts need to be super strong when you know that this person has very influential connections in the political circles of India. Saurabh Kumar, Executive Vice Chairperson, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), during his tenure as an Indian Revenue Services officer, did not think twice before seeking such a warrant, and despite a lot of influential people warning him against doing so, he went ahead and conducted the raid.
Later, he went on to draw on paper what EESL would look like. Despite being one of the brains behind EESL, he decided not to take a position in the same as CEO, as some would call it a selfish move. Today, he is making sure that EESL delivers on saving the environment, and at the same is helping entrepreneurs in their business. This is Saurabh Kumar’s story!
POLICIES: New Chip Import Monitoring System And Its Impact On PLI Schemes
The government of India has made amendments to the rules that govern chip imports in the country and made it mandatory for the importers to feed data to the new system. Subsequently, the government is trying to make India ‘atmanirbhar’ (self-dependent) for the manufacture of electronic goods in India. Will the new rules help or hinder? EFY tries to find out
INNOVATION: Want To Innovate? Stop Focusing On Customer Problems
To innovate, you do not need to focus on customers’ problems. Instead, focus on their intent
THE FUTURE: Digital Twin Benefits From Collaboration With IoT
Digital Twin is an upcoming technology that is considered to be the next big innovation. However, there is more to Digital Twin than simply providing simulation
INNOVATION: Amazing Flying Warehouse For Delivery From The Sky
This article covers some technologies being considered for the logistics involved in quick delivery of the goods through future drone delivery systems, including a flying warehouse up in the sky
ANTI-COVID: Some Open Source DIY Oxygen Concentrators
If you have been wondering why do-it-yourself (DIY) and open source communities are not proposing any solution for the oxygen concentrators that are in great demand due to the ill effects of Covid-19, here are some of the best open source DIY designs that have been recently introduced by them for setting up or manufacturing oxygen concentrators
ANTI-COVID: Some Open Source Anti-Covid Solutions
The second wave of Covid-19 outbreak has created a critical situation for us all. Thankfully, the open source community and several groups of enthusiastic techies have taken up the challenge and are offering some excellent solutions for combating the coronavirus. The open source community is also providing a low-cost design for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing. The entire device can be made for about 50 dollars (approx. 3,700 rupees) only. EFY team has reviewed and shortlisted some of the open source products. Hope you will find the information useful in these difficult times
TRENDS: How HMI Technologies Are Enhancing Safety And In-Vehicle Experience
As we are moving towards smart, connected, and autonomous mobility, the interaction between the vehicle and the human has also evolved. The HMI solutions of today not only enhance the in-vehicle experience and convenience but also deliver personalised experiences. Only the information that is critical at a particular moment is communicated to the driver
CIRCUITS: Effective Power Management For Wearable Devices
A smart wearable whose battery runs out in a few hours is not desired by anyone. But by identifying the associated problems and carefully designing the power circuitry, this battery issue can be avoided
SYSTEMS: Python: The Super Champ For Machine Learning
Machine Learning (ML) is a technology used to make any software process improve through experience with the help of algorithms. It is a part of artificial intelligence (AI) and uses training data to improve decisions and predictions, without the need for any explicit programming. ML was first conceived by Arthur Samuel of IBM in 1952. This article highlights Python as the best language for ML
