Be it hot or be it cold, tea is the most consumed drink in the world after water. And it is not a secret that we Indians have an affinity towards tea. Being the second largest producer of tea in the world, Indians consume 80 percent of its domestic consumption and hence stands fourth in the list of the largest tea exporters in the world. India has exported tea worth $463.95 million between April to October 2018. While the majority of tea consumers in India like it hot and milky, there is a segment who like their tea cold. Owing to healthier choices people are slowly moving towards RTD (Ready To Drink) categories of drinks, and moving away from carbonated and sugary drinks. This Startup Sunday we feature Brewhouse, a Delhi based startup which is looking to capture such a segment and serve them quality iced tea options instead of consuming aerated sugary drinks.

Most of the startups are built with the intention of problem-solving and making the lives of people easier. One of the aptest examples of this is “Delhivery”. In an interview, Sahil Barua, one of the 5 co-founders of Delhivery said: “We had worked extensively in the telecom sector and over the years we realized that internet is going to revolutionize how businesses would be done”. In one of the incidents where Sahil wanted a book to be delivered to one of his friends Suraj, also a co-founder, who lived across the street, through a courier service, both of them realized inefficiencies in the system when the courier service provider charged them Rs. 350 and took 2 days to deliver which they couldn’t understand “why?”. In order to solve this problem, they came up with “Delhivery”.
Delhivery is a Delhi based startup that helps merchants and brands create successful online businesses by providing E-Commerce technology and core logistics support.

The story of most of the successful startups starts from realizing the gap in the market and moving towards filling that one. Indian television entertainment has a huge pile of content but somewhere lacks the specific content to cater to the young viewers. There came the most famous YouTube content giant to amaze the viewers with exactly what they were looking for.
This week, we present to you the story of a guy who did something out of the league and created our very favorite TVF.
The Viral Fever (TVF) is an online YouTube channel started by TVF Media Labs in 2010, and currently owned and operated by Contagious Online Media. TVF was the pioneer of web-series in India with hits like Permanent Roommates and Pitchers. As of December 2018, TVF has over 5 million subscribers on YouTube.
Education has become a costly affair with the rise in the demographics of children and young adults in the Indian educational system. The Indian education sector has seen high growth in the past two decades with parents looking to admit their children into English medium schools. The rise in private schools training young children in the foreign language, along with teaching them moral education and modern etiquettes, appealed to the rising Indian middle class. This also led to the number of students passing 12th every year. In the subsequent days, new private graduation and post graduation institutes and universities have been established following norms laid down by Government regulated norms and principles.
Such an increase in the number of students to an average of 45-50 students in a batch has resulted in a lack of attention to individual students. In this edition of Startup Sunday, we the Entrepreneurship Cell got an opportunity to talk to the CEO/Founder of one such startup which is working towards making quality education accessible & affordable to every child from the best teachers across India.
“We will continue to see a convergence of the digital world and physical world. Those who conquer that trend would be market leaders.” – John Phillips, Pepsico Inc
