In our last blog about Kunal Kapoors Ketto.,We spoke about how The Talk Studio saw an exceptional Start-Up,and we promised to get back to you with our Surge’16 experience.
Today we are going to talk about an interesting Start-up,the “First Time Ever Smart Scooter ATHER s340” that was showcased this years Surge’16 conference,Bengaluru.
Ather Energy, is a startup by two IITians – Tarun Mehta and his batchmate Swapnil Jain who has launched India’s first electric smart scooter called S340. The S340 comes with a range of up to 60 kilometres in one single charge.
The company claims its Lithium Ion battery pack is IP67 rated and offers an uncompromised ride for 50,000 kms. It will only kickoff via online-only sales model later this year.
**Yes! There will be no dealerships where you can buy the S340 from.This makes S340 India’s first two-wheeler to be sold via online sales model.
Ketto is an online crowdfunding space for social causes and is based in Mumbai, India. Kunal Kapoor the Co-Founder of Ketto along with Varun Sheth took the initiative to make people aware about a concept like this. It is a platform where you can start offering with as less as Rs 100. Kunal with the help of his friends and his agency Kwan Foundation looks to bring individuals and corporates from all fields together to support their favorite causes and add ‘fun’ in fundraising.
Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people, today often performed via internet-mediated registries, but the concept can also be executed through mail-order subscriptions, benefit events, and other methods.Crowdfunding is a form of alternative finance, which has emerged outside of the traditional financial system.
They showcased Ketto at the web summit SURGE’16 that happened for the first time in in India,Bengaluru as it being the Hub of Startup’s. .It took web summit 5 years to grow from 400 attendees to more than 42,000 attendees from 130 countries around the world and dozen of talks from the founder of leading startup’s like Snapdeal, Zivame, Yourstory, Flipkart and many more at the Centre Stage as well as Marketing Stage.
This is where THE TALK STUDIO spotted Ketto as an interesting concept to be told to people.
In November 2013, Ketto raised USD 150,000 angel investments from Club ah!, a network of investors and part of ah! Ventures, and not-for-profit angel network Calcutta Angels. Investors from ah! Impact, the impact investing arm of ah! Ventures, also participated in the deal.
India Art Fair’16 was one of its kind
This year we experienced exceptional work that varied from digital media, different art forms, sculptures and installations. Delhi was mesmerized with the kind of work that was showcased this year. One of the most interesting art works were seen at the “EXHIBIT 320” that presented a body of work with emerging and mid-career contemporary artists from the subcontinent with a focus on India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
One of the artwork that really stood out was of Ayesha Singh her enthrallment with the postcolonial and minor architecture was really impressive.
