For many of today’s young Indians, a pay cheque at the end of the month is just not enough. They are eager to push themselves to their limits and then a bit further, only to fulfil their dreams and entrepreneurial aspirations. StartUps is the answer to the unbounded desires of the GEN Y, and numerous such stories are inspiring and awe-striking at the same time.
Though the idea of a Start-up is rather romantic; working with your buddies, long hours of work and the sheer willpower to push your idea forward, but the reality is far from being rosy. The startup community in India is vast and fast growing. Therefore, Surge an event backed by Web Summit, was held in Bangalore in Febuaury2016. We here at Pepipost not only provide the chance for startups by creating an another platform to market their product but also take an initiative to bring these incredible startups in the limelight. We interviewed few start-ups to gain the insights of their products. It was an immense pleasure for us to meet some of the very talented and innovative startups who have a very promising future ahead.
