Culture at Team Indus

There are very few start-ups in the world which start with a Moon Mission.  And there is Team Indus.  Like every mission we have seen on innumerable episodes of Star Trek, this team relies on its experts, team members, advisory board, leadership and ingenuity to deliver the result.  We are an eclectic mix of youth and experience, drawn together on an exciting mission.  Our team of passionate youngsters – some straight out of campus, are ably supported by veteran scientists. We are a young, passionate, highly motivated, self driven growing team, which will stop nothing short of the Moon! To continue this spirit, my mission within this team is to build systems and processes to sustain what we stand for – Aspire.Believe.Create.

In the absence of a large media campaign we have let those who look out for such initiatives come to our Facebook page and learn more about this, while secretly wishing this go viral. We came up with ARL credits that are awarded for the collaborating and feeds directly into the leaderboard at the end of every month – true League style eh!

Armchair Rocketeers League #TeamIndus“No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid.”
~ LupitaNyong’o, best supporting actress, Oscars 2014, for 12 Years a Slave

Steven Spielberg created a Space Renaissance, some say. Like the original Renaissance movement, it replicated the domino effect – ideas and innovations crashed into each other, added to each other and created a spectacular, final force that ended in stunning, path-breaking creation.

But that was fiction. This, people, is the REAL THING. Make no mistake. This is about guts and glory, in real time and in the real world.
