Dear Member,
It gives us great pleasure in inviting you to an interactive session with Mr. Rahul Narayan, Founder, Team Indus and Ms. Sheelika Ravishankar, TeamIndus Jedi Master and Lead, Marketing & Outreach Strategy.
Team Indus, the Bengaluru-based start-up is reaching for the moon!!! Literally! The only Indian team vying to be the first private entity to soft-land their spacecraft on the moon! This will be an excellent platform for you to get answers to your questions on this unique mission, where they also plan to offer Indians the opportunity to leave their names on the moon, for a price! 
The title of the talk “Architecting a Moonshot” will outline the journey of TeamIndus from its inception to the present day. They will also talk about the basic elements of the technology and science that goes behind building a mission like this and the efforts undertaken by TeamIndus to take this mission to every individual so that they can make it their own.

Rahul Narayan: Rahul Narayan is the Founder of TeamIndus, that is engineering path-breaking solutions for tomorrow’s challenges. TeamIndus is building a Spacecraft capable of soft-landing on the Moon, a mission planned for December 2017. TeamIndus has secured a dedicated PSLV launch vehicle, and has previously been awarded $1M as milestone prize in its bid to win the Google Lunar XPrize.                                                                       

Sheelika Ravishankar: Sheelika Ravishankar leads TeamIndus’ Marketing and Outreach programs. She is responsible for formulating & executing strategies that will make TeamIndus’ GLXP mission one of the most inclusive events of all time, creating the niche and brand recall for TeamIndus. Her aim is to get India to be aware of this mission, join the journey and make it their own, making it #HarIndianKaMOONSHOT. Her handle is TeamIndus Jedi Master. She’s has been an entrepreneur and executive for over 2 decades prior to TeamIndus.
About Team Indus:

TeamIndus is about New World thinking for tomorrow’s challenges, we are developing a Spacecraft to land on the Moon in December this year, a global first in terms of privately funded Space exploration.

TeamIndus has come a long way over the past couple of years – securing independent tech validation by an international panel of experts, winning $1M as milestone prize, partnership with French Space agency CNES, a dozen ISRO experts working full time, 75 person engineering team and an integrated design & development facility in Bangalore set up to ensure quality output on schedule for a Dec 2017 launch for the Moon.
This initiative truly represents the best in class technology & product development that India can offer to the rest of the world. When TeamIndus succeeds it will not just be a source of pride for all of us, very likely lead the way for core engineering technology development coming out of India. Quite like several other initiatives from India, TeamIndus has beaten long odds to come this far, and as we continue on this audacious journey, we are seeking the support of business leaders to create arguably the biggest rallying point for innovation and scientific research from India.
TeamIndus: Moon Mission

TeamIndus is the only Indian team competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE. The $30M Google Lunar XPRIZE is a global competition to challenge and inspire engineers and entrepreneurs to develop low-cost methods of robotic space exploration. To win, a privately funded team must successfully place a robot on the Moon that explores at least 500 meters and transmits high-definition video and images back to Earth.
