Startup Sunday || Season 3 Episode 36 || Delhivery

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”.

Startup Sunday || Season 3 Episode 33 || Vidyakul

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.Viyakul

Startup Sunday || Season 3 Episode 21 || Careio – Making Home Care Services Easier And Effective

In an emergency, what treatment is given by ear?  Words of Comfort.” said Abraham Verghese

Long-term medical care, whether it be for the sick or recuperating post-surgery or the aged, is best carried out in the environs of the home, for reasons of patient-comfort, logistical convenience and economy. But to constantly monitor the condition of the patient and provide Medicare at the appropriate time, the two vital requirements are professionally-competent personnel and optimal use of technology.

Though nascent in India, home health care service providers are using both these components to good use to make their mark. But India hasn’t grown much in this sector, because in India, the old and sick are taken care of by family members. Our society generally looks down upon families that seek outside help to take care of their sick and bedridden elders.

 So, is India ready for professional home healthcare providers?
