DudeGenie, a 24*7 chat based assistance and easy to use discovery platform

Man has developed a great deal in past years. With the increased exposure to the internet, the lifestyle services are now abundantly available over this cloud world. There are websites and startup for every possible service that one might need or even think of. Convenience is the key to a good life, especially when it comes to everyday things. And in today's perpetually active lifestyles, where people are always on the move, life often falls out of rhythm and becomes difficult. While there is assistance (in the form of apps), it does not offer 'complete convenience' at a single point. Jumping between apps, wasting time in doing so, often leaves the user disillusioned and perplexed. This is where DudeGenie steps in as a chat-based and self-search equipped discovery platform that helps us...

5 Ways Startups Can Beat Big Companies- Ravin Gandhi

One of the most intimidating things entrepreneurs face is the fact that some of their competitors are massive multi-billion dollar corporations. Everyone knows the story of David and Goliath; occasionally the underdog wins.  But in the real world, the giant wins a lot (if not most) of the time. This was a reality I faced when I started GMM Nonstick Coatings in 2007, a manufacturer of nonstick coatings for cookware, bakeware and appliances. We were a true startup: no employees, clients or products.  Our main competitor was DuPont, whose multi-billion dollar brand Teflon has been a household name for decades.  Other industry competitors were subsidiaries of global conglomerates with facilities that looked like museums. I remember walking trade shows with a rolling suitcase alone, not bein...

Startup India, Standup India- What India can learn from Israel

If Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Independence Day dream of India succeeding as 'startup' country has to kick start, there is a lot to learn from the original 'startup nation' Israel. The tiny country of Israel mushrooms almost two new startup companies every day and today houses some 5000 startups. New Delhi of course is just starting up! On being asked if Modi's call for a 'startup India' can succeed, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "As far as the 'startup nation' I think this has a lot to do with entrepreneurial spirit. I have noticed that in Silicon Valley (USA), you hear Indian dialects and you hear Hebrew, sometimes you hear some English, which means there is a lot (happening). There is a lot of spirit for enterprise in both our countries." He also added that he e...

Coimbatore is next the startup hub after Bengaluru

In 2012, Dhruv Kumar shifted the base of his online medical advice platform, iCliniq, to Coimbatore after operating it out of Bengaluru for two years. The reason: He didn't want to be overwhelmed or distracted by the hoopla around startups in the tech capital. "I wanted to be out of all the noise and focus on building a quality product," he said during a recent interview. "There are events all the time and the place is flooded with funding stories. Those days, we thought we were a tech startup and did not focus enough on the health and business side." Several young entrepreneurs like Kumar, who started up in Bengaluru are shifting to Coimbatore. Do-PartTime, a part-time job discovery portal, is another example and one of the reasons for the shift was talent retention. "Every comp...

Young tech startups relocating overseas??

A recent observed change in the Indian Startup ecosystem is raising eyebrows over the projected growth in a recently started new year. As per a leading think tank in the country iSPIRT(Indian Software Product Industry Roundtable), approximately 75% of the young tech startups eyeing the global market may shift overseas to make a new base, reason being better investment opportunities, better regulatory environment and facilities.   Indian eCommerce giant Flipkart and leading mobile advertisement firm InMobi have already their bases in Singapore and many more startups are thinking of catching the same train unless government takes some steps to provide some better opportunities. On the other side, hungry for intellectual growth, the government and investors in other countries a...
