Sridhar Deivasigamani

Sridhar (Sri) Deivasigamani didn’t set out to create the first on-demand hot water heater. But, after returning home from a 30-hour flight only to find his basement completely flooded from a broken water heater, he knew a worthy challenge when he saw it. After mopping up the basement, the robotics engineer immediately started troubleshooting his water heater. By sunrise, he had the idea for what would become the first on-demand, tankless water heater. Today, Intellihot maintains several large-scale clients, including Levi's Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, 340 on the Park, Chicago’s second tallest residential building, and Hilton Hotels.

Sridhar holds a Bachelor’s degree from Manipal Institute of Technology, India, and a Master’s in mechanical engineering from Clemson University.
