Musafir commented:

Innovation is a natural talent that everyone is capable of. At Innovation Factory, we are democratising innovation and meeting a clear need for an open source lab. However, we see ourselves as part of the bigger picture of innovation and entrepreneurship. We look forward to creating links with all the great work happening in the country.
