The Goa Project
15 January 2022
Today at The Goa Project Sessions, it’s Fringe & Geekery, which we define as things that aren’t mainstream or widely known and people who know a lot about them and care deeply.
Gadhadar will talk about how carbon nanotubes outperform other materials, and Deepak will remind us of pain-free approaches to investing that outperform most mutual funds.
Deepak, known for coining the word ‘sensex’ in 1989, used to appear daily on ET Now and CNBC, and wrote a weekly column in the Investor’s Guide section in the Economic Times for several years. He now runs online courses for investors and traders, and develops applications for deeper analysis of stock markets, posts useful material for investors on trendwatchindia.com (not paywalled). He was previously a self-employed consultant for Burroughs Corporation in the Netherlands and UK and an IIT Kanpur and IIM Calcutta alumnus. He is a Tottenham Hotspur supporter.
Gadhadar is an entrepreneur focused on making space accessible to everyone by using carbon nanotubes. With Dr. Robert Kelley Bradley, he co-founded NoPo Nanotechnologies, which manufactures high quality single-walled carbon nanotubes. His team won the fourth International Space Power Competition conducted by the United Nations SGAC for a concept using carbon nanotubes to build solar-powered satellites. In 2018, he was included in the International Institute of Space Commerce’s inaugural 35-under-35 list as the sole Asian disrupting space commerce. He has given INK and TEDx talks that showcase how advanced technologies can be developed in India. NoPo’s carbon nanotubes, proudly made in Bangalore, are considered the best in the world, with a precision within two atoms.
