Shrugal Nagarkar

Founder & CEO

Shrugal’s love for engineering began in his early years with hours spent playing with Lego as a child. His passion eventually drove him to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and led him to Director positions in various companies.

Being in the industry for more than a decade, he is familiar with the entire product life cycle from concept to design to manufacturing. His experience in Product Design, Manufacturing, and Engineering Operations led him to become a full-time consultant and thus began Quarterback Engineering to help companies build products with purpose.

Having worked for some of Singapore’s fastest-growing hardware startups, he has a deep understanding of the complex problems that companies face and how to tackle them.

He strongly believes that good decisions need to be made early for products to succeed​. A technologist at heart, he is playing his part in making the world a better place one technology at a time.
