1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
Our pitch is quite disruptive. We are creating an army against Uber! I believe its time that a company that flaunts regulation and thinks it has the right to go unregulated change its wicked ways.We are empowering the startups across the globe with tech solutions to achieve our goals.
What are your plans for 2017?
With our cost effective and state of the art B2b tech solutions, we plan to make a big impact on the World, revolutionising the on-demand space. We are currently the third largest auto ricksha (tuk-tuk) aggregator coupled with on-demand hyperlocal deliveries, we want to take our start-up success story global on a much bigger scale.
What will you be talking about at Slush Tokyo?
For this event, the focus will be discussing the mammoth role of on-demand in transforming local communities. I am going to touch upon the latest trends in the on-demand space and some insightful figures on its impact on the society at large.
What inspired you to attend it?
We are a India based company with the vision of touching a billion lives across the glove. I travel around the world in search of relevant tech-platforms like Slush to open our brand to the global audience. This not only gives visibility to the brand and the offerings but also helps us gauge the acceptance and the unique requirement of each market. It helps us sell. It inspires us to innovate.
