Dastoor met pals John Ulmen and Matthew Tran while studying engineering at
Stanford University, where the three often found themselves talking about the
need for a better way to get around campus. So they created one -- an electric
longboard which they call Boosted Boards. The CEO of this Silicon Valley
startup, which raised nearly a half million in crowd sourced funding through
Kick-starter, Dastoor hopes to provide a new way to commute for those who live
within a six-mile radius of work.
co-founders at Boosted, Dastoor participated in the Y Combinator and StartX
incubator programs. He is finishing his PhD on bio-inspired robotics at
Stanford, and he holds a MS from Stanford and a BS from UC Berkeley. He has
also worked at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab and SRI International.

When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge.
Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the
world, from thought leaders and experts who are notable achievers in
their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successful corporate career in
New Zealand in 2007, to set up a dream business of connecting
knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional talent with the
corporate world, globally.
