Top 10 inspiring Indian startup stories

startup stories

You have an idea. They leave comfortable work. They work hard. You are making history. Start-ups appear in India that feel their presence not only domestically, but all over the world. They inspire with success stories of people who have paved the way for innovation and dreams.

  1. Make my trip

A graduate of “Make My Trip” IIM Ahmedabad, Deep Kalra Brains has revolutionized the travel industry over the years. It was originally launched to the US market in 2000 to meet NRI’s travel needs from India to the US. He started his business in India in 2005 and started selling air tickets. A few years later, Make My Trip was listed on the NASDAQ and made three acquisitions the following year. He has received numerous international awards and honours.

  1. Flipkart

It cannot be a stranger to anyone! Flipkart gained a lot of popularity a few years ago with its first online market leader in India. IIT-D alumni Sachin and Binnie Bansal previously worked with Amazon to bring similar concepts to the Indian market. They started out as books in 2007 and now sell almost everything from personal items to jewellery, CDs, and office supplies. He bought Myntra for about INR 2,000.

According to reports from the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones VenturSource, Flipkart.com was ranked among the top five start-ups in the world worth $ 5 billion with approximately $ 11 billion in revenue.

  1. Zomato

Zomato was released in 2008 and it is not such a sensation. It has over 331,200 restaurants in 19 countries around the world. It started with Foodiebay.com and was named India’s Most Promising Internet Company two years later. Two years later, he received international recognition.

 DeepinderGoyal and Pankaj Chaddah founder have always wanted to go their own way. Zomato initially had no funds and growth was very slow. However, the crowd soon turned around and made Zomato what he is today.

  1. redBus

RedBus was launched in 2006 and has seen tremendous growth in recent years. This start-up has succeeded in realizing the pioneering idea of making it easier for the public to book bus tickets as an online site for booking bus tickets and booking hotels. The idea came to aspiring BITS entrepreneurs Pilani Fanindra, Sudhakar and Charan when one of them, Fanindra, was unable to return to Diwali because he could not buy a bus ticket. At the time, everyone worked for a well-known multinational corporation. Running redBus.in is a big risk. No matter how much you pay for this risk, the rest is history.

  1. com

Housing.com, a Mumbai-based real estate search engine, co-founded 12 IIT-B alumni with the vision of transparency in the real estate market. Housing.com deserves credit for its exponential growth. It was founded just two years ago and the response has been overwhelming. Despite the possibilities, Housing.com has enjoyed great success. Since its inception in 2012, there have been 4 rounds of funding.

  1. InMobi

Mobile ad network giant InMobi was founded in 2007 and is the result of entrepreneurial experience and innovative ideas. Navin Tewari, a Harvard Business School graduate formerly at McKinsey, wanted to create what he could call. Before success, he had his own problems. It operates internationally, so I am not sure if the Indian company can succeed.

Despite the obstacles, it has had a great reception around the world; it is now one of the largest mobile ad networks in China. Its growth from a start-up to an MNC is certainly inspiring.

  1. FreeCharge

FreeCharge e-commerce site was founded in 2010 by Kunal Shah and Sandeep Tandon. It makes charging the phone free by returning the same amount to the customer in the form of a dealer voucher. Recognizing that this is a win-win for both shoppers and retailers is a success. As with all new releases, FreeCharge faced a number of obstacles. I thought it was too good for everyone to think it was true, and it didn’t make sense. Some retailers thought the concept of “free” would hurt the brand.

Furthermore, FreeCharge solved most of the problems. They are now associated with various production companies such as Sony Pictures, YRF, UTV, and more.

  1. Ola Cabs

 Who thought that a few years ago it would be much easier to order a taxi? Thanks to Ola Cabs, taxi fares are lower than rickshaws. Ola Cabs co-founders Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati are IIT-B alumni who worked at MNC before embarking on a risky entrepreneurial journey.

This idea came about after Bhavish was unable to rent a car for the weekend. He wants to provide transparency and convenience for consumers in this area. In October, Ola Cabs joined the League of Most Valuable Start-ups in the United States, raising $ 210 million, which is about $ 1 billion.

  1. Teach for India

Teach for India, a non-profit organization of the global Teach For All movement, is committed to providing quality education for all children. Founded in 2007 by Shahin Mistry, TFI strongly believes that every child can and should receive a quality education. Likewise, TFI offers scholarships to work as full-time teachers for two years in low-income schools, hiring college graduates and interns. Today, Teach For India operates in 7 cities, with 910 fellows and 660 alumni working to close educational inequalities.

  1. Make A Difference

MAD confirms the slogan “Don’t Stop Believing!” It has been operating for almost 10 years. We are recruiting young leaders to fill the gap in educational inequality. In 2005, MAD founders Jitin Si Nedumala, Gloria Benny and Sujit Abraham Varki decided to visit the boys’ home in Cochin and spend some time there. Children in animal shelters feel talented and want more work to do. They soon returned regularly to spend time with their children. This is where the story of MAD begins.

They have a variety of programs that recruit a wide variety of volunteers to educate children in need. Currently, about 2,100 MAD volunteers are teaching about 5,200 children across India. For his successful work he has received recognition from international organizations.
