Entrepreneurship is the "in thing" in India


The Entrepreneurial spirit is very high in India these days with tons of very good companies and products coming jostling for attention. Many of the ideas are adaptations / localization of successful ones across other parts of the globe and some are very unique to the unique needs/demographics of the country. Here are a few that I cam across - not necessarily listed in any order of relevance or importance but more for my own future reference.

  • Revu - a twitter style instant review from via SMS
  • Paytm - instant recharge of your phone, data or tv card and get free coupons
  • freecharge.in - instant recharge of your phone, data or tv card and get free coupons
  • roopit - localized craigslist / sulekha for Bangalore only
  • mobisy - consulting to create apps for mobile platforms
  • Kreeo - platform to manage content, knowledge and social networking inside enterprises
  • CraftsVilla - online market for Indian handicrafts (on the lines of Etsy except that artisan cannot interact directly?)
  • Craftila - another online market for Indian handicrafts (on the lines of Etsy except that artisan cannot interact directly?)
  • goibibo - domestic flight, hotel, holiday & travel booking
  • kidloo - online toy store carrying all major brands
  • firstcry - online store for branded infant and baby products
  • timtara - fast growing online store
  • buyTHEprice - online electronics store
  • pluggd.in - Indian version of TechCrunch?
  • flipkart - India's very own version of Amazon?
  • mime360 - secure digital media distribution platform
  • mYusic - streaming legal bollywood music
Let me know if you see any more sites....
