India is on the cusp of an entrepreneurial revolution. The euphoria is palpable. Young, dynamic & smart founders of today are roaring to succeed and are absolutely irreverent to the idea of failure. Never before has India’s entrepreneurial energy been so mainstream.

However, successful entrepreneurship is the ultimate balancing act. Endless optimism, unwavering courage and dogged determination of founders have to be balanced with thoughtful leadership, intellectual honesty and maturity to overcome gritty challenges and build billion dollar 100-year organizations. It is this balancing act that will define India’s unique success story as an entrepreneurial leader in the years to come. It’s time to take stock.

Themes

E-commerce

E-commerce has changed everyone’s shopping behavior. The ability to sit at your home, browse through millions of searchable and indexed products and get them delivered with a click of a button is revolutionary. But a lot of things can be improved. Build apps that help us in better buying decision, that make the operations process much simpler or simply just makes e-commerce more consumer friendly

Super Workplaces

What's a super workplace? A place where everyone is happy and satisfied. Build an app that helps you know how Super a workplace is.

For example: You can create an app that will ask the user at the end of every work day, how their day went. Rate it on a scale from 1-10, 1 being the least productive and dis-satisfactory and 10 being the most productive and satisfactory. The app should then generate a graph/chart that the HR team can review, which will convey how happy/unhappy the workforce was on that particular day.

Of course, this just one of the many innovations you can work on. Feel free to explore every avenue and wow us with your take on what makes a workplace Super!

Happiness at workplaces everyday!

Travel

In the last 5 years, many offline services have been enhanced by the power of mobile internet. Over the counter ticketing has drastically reduced, with the advent of internet ticketing and fragmented industries, like bus travel have also benefitted from aggregation services. Then came itinerary planning and location based recommendations and before you knew it, there was a whole suite of tech products for the traveller. Now, there are computers on vehicles - some so powerful that they don’t need a driver. Travel technology, coupled with IoT and other already existing technology services can add a lot more value for the traveller. Better enroute recommendations? Or even a simple music player that chooses genres based on a place or people you’re travelling with? There’s a lot that you can do.
