Don’t you find it suspicious that a company founded in 2021 (just 3 years back) is now producing compoenents/systems for Brahmos missiles, Pinaka Artillery Rockets, K9 Vajra Artillery Guns!! It is a widely known fact that qualification & approval of vendors in defence and aerospace is a time taking process. I’ll leave it to you to draw your own conclusions.

During Defence Expo 2022 (biennial event on a national level), no one had even heard of this company. And in 2024 this company sponsored the Maharashtra Defence Expo 2024 (first time event, state level). Its name and banners were every where. And suddenly it was seen flaunting products which other companies have taken 5-10 years to develop. Defence industry insiders were surpised and hinted at some political connections at play. Again you can draw your own conclusions.

Maybe you are right or wrong.

but in my opinion, the company is on a tailwind + The company has a senior navy officer as an independent director+ and Some experienced people with good experience in making defence hardware and software as chief executive and technical officer.

So till the defense theme is there stock is good

Wow Interconnected Wearable Safety Bands. From when did they start the vertical for Electronics I thought Nibe was only into the following 3 verticals . I cannot imagine their R&D / Innovation was importing a China made band and advertising it in the Startup IDEX competition.

Food for thought … Does an approx. 3000 cr market cap company be even considered to be a startup to be participating in the event
