Debashish Talukdar is best known for developing creative ideas and applying them ideally when it comes to businesses and entrepreneurship. Debashish is the co-founder of a cooperative company called Valetudo Systems. The company collaborates with the science community to develop products used to eradicate Microorganisms.
The first product, Helios, comes in the shape of an oven, and it uses UVC and magnetron to sanitize food. It also comes with an in-built camera. Once the food is prepared, the chef puts it into the Helios device. First, the UVC works on decontaminating the surface of the food; it doesn’t get into the core. UVC is a form of ultraviolet light and is germicidal.
So what happens to the germs inside the food? Well, that’s where magnetrons come to light; what does a magnetron do? Magnetrons generate microwave energy. The microwave energy travels through a waveguide and is distributed into a metal cavity where the food is cooked. The waves are absorbed by the food and excite water molecules in the food. This heat then transfers throughout the food cooking it.
During this process, a video is recorded using the inbuilt camera, the oven generates an OTP, and when the waiter serves the food, the customer gets this OTP and can use this to watch a video of their food being sanitized on Valetudo Systems’ website, this is achieved using blockchain. The whole process helps stop the spread of germs and foster trust between restaurants and their customers.
The second device, Phalion, is a self-driving sanitary robot that helps hotels and workspaces meet up with government rules and protocols for COVID-19. It does this by sanitizing a space of 120sqft in just 5 minutes. It also has a GPS attached to it which helps to know if a room was sanitized. The same blockchain technology used in UVC helios to establish trust is used here too. Phalion can be applied to hotel rooms, hospitals, meeting spaces, and workplaces.
Recently, I had the opportunity of getting an up-close discussion with Debashish Talukdar. The interview was targeted at getting to know more about him, his success story, company, and the creative global initiatives he intends to bring. Here are some of the discussions we had;
Can we get to know you more?
My name is Debashish Talukdar, and I am the Co-founder of Valetudo Systems. Valetudo Systems is a scientifically inclined firm whose primary goal is to rid the world of dangerous microorganisms. We do this by collaborating with various members of the science community and creating devices that will ensure the eradication of these deadly organisms.
What Inspired You To Start Valetudo Systems?
I started Valetudo because of the need to diversify and change from the conventional means of doing business, which has been affected by global health issues. My team members and I decided to think of ideas that will make our industry, the hospitality industry, productive again. We gathered a lot of ideas and collectively came up with Valetudo Systems as it was the best fit for the current market in this new economy.
How has your firm merged the hospitality and health industry?
Valetudo Systems plays a vital role in the hospitality and health industry by looking to merge both. Our business initiatives focus on providing what humanity currently demands, which is assurance and transparency. Thus, we set up a global immune system initiative that the world has never experienced and look to have a viable and healthier business environment as a result.
What Habits Do You Believe Led You To The Level You Are Today?
Any entrepreneur who seeks growth must create successful habits. I realized this and started by being vigilant in my pursuit of success. I noticed that if you do not possess the core value of wanting to succeed, you will fail every time. I told myself that daily success starts with remembering that each time I step out, I must do something to make others as happy as I am. So far, I have been doing that to the best of my abilities.
Hard work and persistence have always been essential, too, because I know it pays off all the time. I was coming into an industry that I was not familiar with, the health industry, so I had to learn, acquire new skills, and collaborate with the right people.
Lastly, I would like to share some advice to anyone striving to attain success:
My advice is to stay on course and push even harder when there are push backs. You will feel defeated at times, but only you can defeat yourself. Also, always be willing to bend your vision.
