There are moments when nothing is working. It is the moment of acid test. The product development is going awful right now. We produce good quality powders sometimes, but not repeatable with every run. Suddenly the powder producing reactor is down and I assume a 2-weeks downtime in this critical time. My cores are either breaking apart or having no good insulation layer. The die started to act weird. Magnetic measurement system is acting strange time to time. We promised a product delivery in two months!

My son is in NICU. It’s been neve wrecking to go through this and the uncertainty of product development, at the same time. No place to vent, no additional help in personal life.

He is one of the most ignorant persons I have ever worked it. He was not…

Covid+visa= (nightmare)²

This was by far the most challenging time of my 32-year life. A couple of reasons-

I have been hit by uncertainty about if I would be able to go back to the USA where I build my career for the last 8 years. I have close to…

Undoubtedly it is one of the most charming experience of my entrepreneurial career. Getting to YC is one of the hardest thing because of their multiple billion dollar exits- AirbnB, DoorDash, Stripe, Cruise, Instacart, Dropbox, Coinbase, Zapier, Ginko Bioworks, Bewx, Reddit, Faire, Relativity Space and many more.

YC invests $125k…

Today I got a paycheck from my own company. It feels awesome to have the ability to run our payroll and pay through own company fund. It’s liberating and comes with big bag of responsibility to be able to return the money couple to couple tens of time to the investors.
