Yet another successful and energy filled Startup Weekend comes to an end and we have tons of stories, memories, experience and 3 winners from this edition. A focussed group of entrepreneurs made 7 pitches to the judging panel on Sunday. Three of them were awarded winners. Here is a bit more about who the three teams are:
Star Outfits Won The First Place
“An idea for a person to order any of the apparel that he/she sees on TV” – Star Outfits taps a lucrative market where housewives (not limited to them) can order the saree that a television actress is wearing on screen. Taps into the huge tele shopping market in a social way. No wonder they were the judges choice!
Team: Giri Prashant, Anirudh Shah, Gaurav Munjal, Avnish Kumar
Ossum Were the First Runners-up at #SWMUM
A friend once told, ‘when the gold rush happened, the ones who made most money were the ones selling pots & pans’. Ossum reminds us of the same. “Ossum gathers deals from the hottest deal websites and shows you only the ones you’ll love!”.
Team: Nirav Shah, Dhaval Shah, Raghu Bhat, Manish Reddy, Varun Jain, Raghu Prodduturi
Chalo Let’s Go – Consolation Prize (Second Runners-up)
If you live in Mumbai or any other well populate city, you do know how much of a pain public transport can be, specially Autorickshawas. Chalo let’s Go attracted the judging panel with the magnitude of the problem they handled. Indeed a problem worth taking on.
Team: Joelle Schulthess, Aditya Kulkarni, Fayaz Hudah, Vijay Grover, Chalinda Abeykoon, Kishore Karanala, Tirthesh Ganatra
