About the Project:

Suryodaya is creating the A3S (Advanced Adaptable Agricultural System), a new high-performance and affordable solar-electric nursery and drying system for farmers in India. A3S was developed by a team based at Stanford University, USA with on-the-ground partners, the Deshpande Foundation and Pequrel Microelectronics Pvt. Ltd.

Recently, Suryodaya completed a 500-kg-scale prototype near Bellary and a 2000-kg prototype near Navalgund, Karnataka. With these two prototypes, Suryodaya plans to conduct further product testing and design refinement, to pilot a drying-as-a-service and nursery business model and deploy more A3S pilots in the coming year. Suryodaya is seeking a motivated, self-starting entrepreneurial ​Project Manager​ to work full-time (6 months to 1 year) to help lead activities on the ground in India in order to achieve and shape Suryodaya’s short- and long-term goals. There is potential for this role to expand to an India-based first employee position if Suryodaya launches as a legal entity in India.
