These are only my personal views & in no way can be considered to be a standard or judgemental call on anyone.
I have had goose bumps watching social network, the part where Zuckerberg takes out his card that says “I am the CEO , Bitch !”. Making money out of doing what you love to do is the primary motive behind every entrepreneur but the real picture is all about hardcore madness & trust in your “idea”. Luckily , I have come across a lot of such awesome ideas which have inspired me & also inspired many ‘a’ like me and that’s why I thought to write about them.
Innovation: First Artificial intelligence based start-up from Kerala or even India
Type : Product / R&D
Now, you don’t get to hear about R&D or artificial intelligence a lot and that itself makes these guys stand out from the crowd. They have been given grand’s twice by TBIC for R&D, won hell lot of awards globally and recognized by International community. Ask me what they are doing ? ,well i just know some basic outline. But then team Artin is the most jovial team I have come across and I’m sue anyone who met these guys would agree.
Their latest product Spara looks quite promising and has some very relevant role in power consumption patterns of industries. The team is headed by Nelvin Joseph(@callemeninja),CEO who is a sure surprise to everyone who have met him.Now,let’snot spoil the surprise in case you have not met him, ya ?
Innovation: Mobile search engine
Probably the youngest entrepreneur I have ever met, the CEO Deepak Ravindran and friends started Innoz in their college days and then, there’s been no looking back for them. I believe they are celebrating their Third Anniversary about these days, so special congrats to the team ! They have themselves deeply rooted into the fast growing mobile arena. Their mobile search app has already been used by Airtel and has also won them many a awards Nationally & Globally .
Now, these guys are seriously persistent at what they are doing and that quality has given them many feats in this short span of time.
Innovation: Mobile app that’s based on Intelligence gathering
Now I am sure the app “Friday” which these guys have developed is a sure bet to become something bigger ahead.a team with the right mix of enthu,the CEO Founder Narayan Babu and team sure know to strike the right chord be that in whatever streams they are into. Dexetra is working on a whole lot of interesting things and probably that’s one reason they even got invites to the tech crunch event in the U.S.
Innovation : Mobile apps that can make a Bang
Now these guys Bang specialists, be that the launch of their “Tuk-Tuk” meter – an app that checks fares of autorickshawas using GPS or “Sentinel” the app that’s made for women security they sure know how to make the right voices. A young bunch of youngsters who weaved their dream company while at college, these engineers did get a lot of balls moving from there.
Christin George,the CEO of the company is vivid wanderer and explorer himself and is quite on a lookout for anything & everything innovative.
Innovation : Thinking beyond potato chips as a snack
It’s relatively a new player in the market but Snacos is sure bet ahead. The peanut based snack has a lot riding on it,in day’s ahead.Although the product is not officially launched I came across this, couple of months back. What took me was to see the packaging of the snack that stood out from the crowd.
Run by a very passionate yet subtle gentlemen, Mr.Arun farmfest, the parent company has a lot of plans ahead of its launch.
Innovation: Home Delivery of any books you want to read
The guy who started it Casey Nester Fernandez, is an ardent bookworm or probably a book lover that he decided to quit his nice well paid job to start Readers Web. The idea is quite simple ,all you need to do is take a one time membership & dial upto 2 books to your home. No late submission fee or any hassles. Happy news for book lovers !
Innovation: a blog network spread over different cities & campuses
Now this is one big dream,to have a network of blogs across different cities & college campuses & bring it to one platform. the effort by Kenney Jacob and team who’s been working hard to get things right for many a years is commendable. From Mumbai to Kochi…metro has almost all cities covered under one umbrella !
Innovation: one of its kind platform for education
I have always had a special respect for ideas in education segment and Rajeevnath viswanathan from Trivandrum has just struck that right chord which is a sure bet in days to come. The software he created for schools is an innovation that can change a lot of thing in coming days in education sector.
Innovation: Gaming company with a difference
Eldhose Mathew, the founder looks so subtle even while he receives the Star Entrepreneur Award at Indira International Innovation Summit, Pune for Csharks but that’s him and his team. They have cracked the code quite a few times and the company is a promising brand to lookout for.
Innovation: a company dedicated to create Logos
When I met Hiran Venugopal and he shared the idea about logo bake I really could not digest much. But he alone have so far gone thee logos jut for me and then i understood that this guy can do some really awesome & vivid logos to an extent that he would even setup a dedicated one stop point just for logos.
So that’s it ! If you thing any other companies also fit in this list..feel free to comment !
