Aerospace entrepreneur Dr. Sushmita Mohanty, is the CEO of Earth2Orbit – India’s first private space start-up.
Dr. Sushmita Mohanty’s career profile is mighty impressive – educated in leading institutions in different parts of the world including India, France and Sweden, she has worked with several prestigious names such as Boeing and NASA.
Building on her skills, Dr. Sushmita Mohanty decided to launch Earth2Orbit in 2008 with a view to commercialize India’s space capabilities and enable it to compete in an international arena in the space sector.
Start-ups in the aerospace area is quite rare in India. Dr. Sushmita Mohanty has been working towards reforming India’s space policy in order to make our Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) a priority in the international space marketplace.
Why we find her inspiring:
– For embarking on a mission to place India’s space initiatives on the global map
– For following her passion of being a “spaceship designer” as she calls herself
– For taking the road less travelled of not only being a successful Indian woman space scientist but also an entrepreneur in the space sector in India.
