Inder is an Industrial Design Lead at IDEO Shanghai. He is well versed in the process of getting products from idea to shipping. He started his career in 2011, working at DELL in Singapore, where he worked with the experience design team on Product Innovation and Development. He then went on to work at McKinsey-Lunar in San Francisco, working with clients like HP, SC Johnson, and CISCO. After his time in the US, he moved to Shenzhen, China, where he spent a few years working in the consumer electronics space with brands like JBL, Harman Kardon, TCL, and OnePlus. Prior to IDEO, he was the Design Director at HAX (SOSV), a VC focused on early-stage hardware startups where he learned and honed an iterative approach to problem-solving. His work ran the spectrum of Hi-tech industries like robotics, industrial IoT, self-driving platforms, and advanced med-tech devices. He was part of the effort that helped raise SOSV's AUM from 400 million to 1.3 billion, while also helping startups raise north of 3 billion in funds. He uses his experience working in different industries to create innovative cross-domain solutions.

I enjoy exploring new places and doing street photography with a good audiobook playing in the background. Feel free to check out some of the images I've captured, below.
