Our Journey

In the beginning

December, 2015

Since December of 2015, Rishi has been passionately engaged towards creating an impact in the society by solving real-world problems creatively.
Picture-1

How it began.

September 15th, 2018

Rishi (aged 24) was travelling on a bus with a fellow volunteer.

Unfortunately, the bus crashed with an oncoming vehicle minutes before he could step off the bus. Rishi was left with a mangled right arm.

Doctors ruled out any possibility of saving Rishi's arm and decided to amputate it in order to save his life.

The price of normalcy

December, 2018

When looking for a possible solution to his problem, Rishi found that functional prosthetics were out of his reach.

This devastated Rishi and his family. Not being able to afford a functional prosthetic arm and knowing that normal life was a distant dream -

Rishi and his friends decided to do something about this problem.

Know More about Symbionic

Rishi Krishna

Co-Founder & CEO

Our founder and CEO, Rishi Krishna, was 24 years old when he met with a catastrophic accident that changed the course of his life. The accident led to the amputation of his right arm. But instead of allowing the catastrophic event put a full stop to his dreams, he decided to leverage his pain to build a better world.

It was striking, that despite such extraordinary technology development around the world, Rishi and millions of people like him were unable to find a solution. This lit a fire in Rishi as he decided to build Symbionic.

What began as a small group of young hackers & engineers has grown to include engineers, experts, social workers, and designers – along with an incredible group of doctors, clinicians, and non-profits working in the developing world.
