The Boosted Boards Story
Along with John Ulmen and Matt Tran, Sanjay Dastoor is a co-founder of Boosted Boards, a rapidly growing company that builds the world's lightest electric vehicle. Few people know that the idea formed while Sanjay and John were still students at Stanford University, and that they incubated at StartX, YCombinator, and TechShop San Jose. In 2012, they successfully raised over $450K on Kickstarter, exceeding their target by four times. Sanjay recently presented a TED talk about Boosted Boards in April 2013.
"Boosted Boards is on a mission to introduce the world to great electric transportation ... Boosted Boards starts with premium, industry tested longboarding components that people already love and then adds a light, powerful and quiet drivetrain." –Silverfish Longboarding
