A World With Better Product Design | Priya Vakil – ThinkPhi

In the forth episode of the Spark Podcast, we invite Mrs. Priya Vakil, Founder at ThinkPhi to share her views on the various developments in the field of green technology. ThinkPhi has been a leading startup in Outdoor Products and Sustainability. With products for innovative and productive workspaces, outdoors.

Priya Vakil speaks to us about how making well designed multi-utility green innovations is the key to changing the consumer’s mindset. She shares how making well designed multi-utility green innovations can help you take your product from being a Nice-To-Have to a Must-Have.

We tend to only think about Performance and ROI, but I think it is a lot about going back and really listening to what the customer wants and what it is that they’re looking for. We need to design for and innovate for years down the line.
