IKIO Founder & CEO Ekamdeep Singh gets featured as one of the entrepreneurs amongst LEDs ^SSL Industry’s 40 most dynamic and successful young professionals.
Online PR News – 14-August-2020 – Indiana, Indianapolis, August 14 – IKIO LED Lighting today announced that Ekamdeep Singh, its Founder & CEO was honored as part of LEDs Magazine’s inaugural “40 Under 40 Awards” program last month. The list includes up-and-coming professionals under 40 years of age in roles ranging from research & development (R&D) to product development to lighting specification/design. Selected by an esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the LED and lighting community, Singh has been recognized for his outstanding contribution to the LED and SSL industry.
“On behalf of the LEDs Magazine 40 Under 40 Awards, I would like to congratulate Ekamdeep Singh on his honoree status,” said LEDs Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Maury Wright. “This competitive program allows LEDs Magazine to celebrate and recognize the rising stars in our community – those who have demonstrated the leadership and fortitude necessary to bring this industry to the next level.”
Ekamdeep Singh holds a degree in Biomedical engineering from Purdue University. Like any other entrepreneur, he too had a modest start in 2014 in the US and in a span of six years he has taken IKIO to new heights. His constant urge to innovate and invest in R&D has led the company to introduce some breakthrough products in the market – a High Bay Light with 200 lumens per watt was one such milestone. Until then, the industry average was around 170-180 lumens per watt. IKIO under Singh’s leadership managed to develop a truly 200 lumens per watt product, which signifies lesser energy consumption while giving more light output.
“I thank LEDs Magazine for this recognition. It feels great to be placed amongst such phenomenal talent. A special thanks to my team who has been constantly working with me in bringing about a change in the LED industry. It encourages us to keep innovating and to keep working hard as this is just the beginning,” asserts Singh.
