July - 2014 issue > 50 Cool Startups of the Year 2014  


The innovative startups nowadays don’t hesitate to push the boundaries and explore new areas in their domains rather than frittering away their precious times in carbon-copying existing ideas. These out-of-the-box thinking startups don’t just have customers but fans. It is manifest from the flourishing number of angel and VC investors boosting these young and energetic companies by lending them hand almost as part-time co-founders. The cool ideas leveraging the emerging technologies increase the efficiency of the industry they serve. Since the bigger the organization, the harder it is to innovate. They fail to meet the needs of customers. As creativity plays a big part, startups leave no stones unturned and answer all the questions of their customers.

Even though Indian startup ecosystem is in early stages, compared with those of U.S. and Israel, the unique and scalable ideas upholding Indian startups are not only turning the heads of Indian investors but also astounding the global players. The companies are able to build their forte into niche areas they worship, therefore their profound expertise don’t go in vain and stay apart from the clutter in their domain. Also the customer centric companies are able to find new ways to serve in a cost-effective manner. These salient startups attract and collaborate with creative and enthusiastic professional talents, as the second generation potential entrepreneurs are eager in learning the development of business ideas.

Technology has grown to the extent that existing businesses and large organizations are unable to cope with the demand. In such a golden era for startups, siliconindia identifies “50 Cool Startups of the Year-2014”. A distinguished panel of the industry’s topmost CEOs, CIOs, CTOs and VCs including siliconindia’s editorial board scrutinized the list of cool startup companies with the intention of highlighting the coolest ideas meeting the future needs of industries across various verticals.
