Inspirotec LLC was founded in 2011 by Prasanthi Gandhi and Julian Gordon, two independent entrepreneurs driven by their interest to make change through simple yet meaningful technologies. The two first met at a local coffee shop to discuss potential technologies that could give allergy and asthma sufferers more control over their health. They tinkered with various product concepts in their home and then fell upon a breakthrough technology with applications in allergens and a variety of other fields including infectious diseases and homeland security.
The company is based in Chicago, IL and active research is taking place at The University of Illinois Chicago Incubator Laboratory Facility.
