The meetup – where the day had been productive for every single attendee
Another successful edition of Startup Meet was organized by us for Weekend Ventures at One Internet, Connaught Place, New Delhi on 18th Dec where promising Startups participated in the session to pitch to investors and accelerators. With audience gathered around, host taking position and investors seated at front, the startups gave presentation one by one in the crucial 3 minutes alloted to them.
Having made their presentations, each startup were quizzed and questioned by the jury members and few audience members. The event progressed smoothly with some innovative ideas and unique approaches taking the limelight. All the below 09 startups pitched about their initiative successfully and the floor was yielded to networking and discussion.
We provide furniture (home + office) and home appliances on rental basis to customers along with “rent-to-own” options. The major problems we are trying to solve for a person who wants to rent a flat are: 1) Price, 2) Lack of option, 3) Choice of furnishing, 4) Free and easy maintenance. We work through a marketplace model, which was so far the missing link in this paradigm.

All collaboration tools currently are restricted to a team environment. For communicating externally (with clients, vendors or even their own top management), people have to get back to emails. Comtify intends to bridge this gap by being a collaboration tool which doubles up as an email client and a CRM system. In a way, it becomes a single tool for both intra-company and inter-company communication cum work management.
This was one of the few events where you know the day had been productive for every single attendee. Hoping that the Startups reach undisputed heights of success and we see many more such events.
