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.
The speakers for this session were Snehith Budime, Co-Founder IndiaBuys, Suresh Avvaru, Co-Founder & CEO, TownyApp, and ML Narashima Rao, Founder & CEO, Jigydi Home Care Services. There was a mixed crowd from students to startup enthusiasts.
