I started PS-1925 last year and we aim to provide drone-based solutions for different sectors like agriculture, healthcare, defense, disaster management, etc. Being a part of projects and initiatives by the Government of India such as NewGEN IEDC helps us to explore new possibilities and domains possible for our drone. NewGEN has provided us a platform to achieve this with its on-going set-up of class-apart innovation laboratory at IIIT Allahabad, a dream of every technology startup. Moreover, the mentors at NewGEN has given a new definition of how we perceive entrepreneurship. I highly recommend all the young engineers at IIIT Allahabad to consider NewGEN IEDC as a kickstart for their entrepreneurial journey
