At 19, I think I can change the world
As a teenager, Param Jaggi moved his lab to his bedroom and invented a device that sucks up Carbon Dioxide emissions from automobile exhausts. Jaggi echoes Steve Jobs’ philosophy that people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. With his startup Ecoviate, Jaggi intends to also empower kids to realize their ideas, build prototypes, and create the change they want to see.
