compromise. That’s an inherent approach to everything we do at Ather. Now
imagine taking a prototype to production and then to end user where is needs to
offer an uncompromised experience. You can already foresee the challenges
ahead. Unlike most other assignments,
where effort goes into fixing what’s broken, at Ather you get the
opportunity to get it right, the first time itself.
