Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs India saw in 2012
2. Phanindra Sama
Phanindra Sama is the founder of Redbus, the leading online portal in ticket bookings for inter-city bus travel. Phanindra Sama is a high impact entrepreneur and Business world placed him as one of the top 5 most promising entrepreneurs in the country. His story is truly inspiring and one that spurs people to take action. He got this idea from frustration as he was unable to visit his family during the diwali festival as none of the bus tickets were available and he decided to take it upon himself to build a portal which did just that – book bus tickets. Today it is the leader in this area.
1. Neha Juneja
It came as a pleasant shock, when Neha Juneja heard that her company Greenway Grameen Infra won the 2012 Intel Global Challenge at Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, receiving $50,000 on November 9 amongst more than 150,000 students from more than 50 countries.
Greenway Smart Stove has developed a patent pending product - cookstove designed as a modern replacement for traditional mud chulhas. This product appealed to the mass as it outstood in many ways – it uses 65 per cent less fuel and produces 80 per cent less smoke than compared to the traditional mud chulhas found in rural areas of the country.
