Our Story

It all started in 2015 as a social impact innovation, when the deluge in Chennai took hundreds of lives and displaced lakhs from their homes. That’s the moment when our founders decided to do something about it. The first and foremost problem fought by the displaced was shelter and we thought of ways to solve it. After some gruelling research, we came up with the idea of foldable housing. The project was initiated in 2016 as an academic project. We successfully developed a prototype of our model. It was a huge revolution in the domain of prefab structures. We were declared winners of the Azim Premji social enterprise idea challenge conducted by Azim Premji University.With the help of leading industrialists and professors from the top construction companies in India, we created our first model to assess the impact of our product in the industry. In 2018, we emerged as winners in Ventura, a global business plan competition conducted by NIT Trichy, E-Cell. In the same year, we were declared as the best startup on-campus and also as the best startup in tech and innovation conducted by Shell during Shaastra, IIT Madras. We developed our first product in 2019 and successfully piloted it at IIT Madras Research Park. We also got the opportunity to be part of an elite group of 42 startups to be selected for rice university business plan, the world’s largest student startup competition. Since then, our products have been purchased by L&T, BPCL, SP, TATA Projects etc. to be used for various purposes including site offices and labour hutments.
