Hyperlocal Startups The Road Ahead

Startup Saturday hosted yet another Headstart Hyderabad session on 14th October 2017, at Collab House.
This time, the theme was Hyperlocal Startups; The Raod Ahead.

‘Hyperlocal’ is poised to become the new catchphrase in the eCommerce industry and is well-positioned to become the reigning trend in the mobile commerce revolution. This has made possible the delivery of everything from groceries to medicines and healthcare services, directly from nearby stores, pharmacists and healthcare providers along with faster delivery and lower shipping cost. The classic method to start a business-to-consumer model is to start hyperlocal and those are the very principles of the lean model too.

The participants learned a lot ranging from how to grow partnerships to how to scale a Hyperlocal Startup.

Students learned the complete cycle of production, from digital design to fabrication. The participants designed and fabricated furniture in the workshop, using Rhinoceros 3D software (3D modeling software) and Rhino CAM software used for CNC fabrication.
