  • Women empowerment is finally at every home’s gate. No country in any part of the world can sustain its development if it under utilizes its women, who constitute almost half the population. Remember, we are not talking just about the elite class anymore. Women, regardless of socioeconomic trace are today equitably contributing towards nation-building, while the government interventions like Companies Act Amendment of 2013 that mandated participation of women in every listed company’s board of directors (BOD), and initiatives like Stand up India, engender a propitious milieu around them. Despite this, it took further courage for Revathi Roy to venture into the highly competitive & traditionally masculine Indian Logistics industry and incept Hey Deedee - India's first all-female hyper- local & last-mile delivery startup. Hey Deedee is not merely an organization today but a silent revolution,providing employment opportunities to women from low-income families by turning them into well-trained delivery agents supporting India’s online shopping outrage.

  • 10 Best Startups to Watch For - 2019

    Ever since the startup ecosystem decentralized from the convictions of Silicon Valley, the environment around it has also metamorphosed into a more favorable, much more inviting one. Today, the ground breaking innovations can occur in a basement, a garage, or a college dorm. But the Indian startup ecosystem, which is ranked at number 37, much below China, Singapore, and South Korea, needs more thrust to race against the global rate. As we are now starting to reap the harvest of union government’s initiative such Startup India and Make in India, the numbers are obliged to improve. That makes the subcontinent’s startup ecosystem as exciting as its counterparts across the world. As technology remains the magic wand, more tech-explosions are highly anticipated from the startup ecosystem, especially in terms of the new norms like Artificial Intelligence & Internet of Things, which are now moving to the next level. While Artificial Intelligence is getting ready to evolve from narrow AI to broad AI, the IoT is expected to make some new friends in the form of Blockchain deployment. The combination of both is predicted to have a good go in the next few years. Quite lucidly, the business world has every reason to await the startup revolution 2.0. In this issue of siliconindia, we present an index of '10 Best Startups to Watch For – 2019'. Each startup on this list possesses the potential to constitute a single handed revolution, significantly transforming the respective vertical and contributing to the business world as whole. siliconindia's editorial board scrutinized the index through frequent discussions with a renowned panel of industry’s topmost CEOs, directors, VCs, and industry analysts, throughout the year. We hope these success stories will serve as an igniter for entrepreneurs who love to live an akin dream.
