Rajeev Karwal, Founder Chairman of Milagrow Robots, died of Covid-19 on Wednesday morning after he was on ventilator support for almost a week. Karwal, 58, was known for his contribution to the Indian electronics and technology space.
He was known for transforming LG Corp as their VP of Sales and Marketing. He also worked as the president and CEO of Reliance Digital for a year before he founded Milagrow in 2007. He held leadership roles at ONIDA, Philips and Electrolux in the past. Milagrow was set up in 2007 for management consultancy and by 2012 the company transitioned to making robots for residential and industrial use.
Milagrowâ€™s robots were of significance during Covid times as hospitals started using Milagrowâ€™s humanoid to help doctors. The first hospital humanoid ELF was deployed in the advanced COVID-19 ward at AIIMS, Delhi to shield doctors and healthcare care workers from the virus.
During the pandemic, Milagrow saw the market exploding for its floor-cleaning robots in residential sectors and other service robots as domestic helps were not available amid Covid concerns during this period.
