TruckSuvidha among 6 promising e-commerce startups
The monthly TiE Bangalore Product Showcase held this week featured six startups in e-commerce and m-commerce. The monthly events are a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to demonstrate and validate products to fellow startups and prospective investors – and face tough queries from an expert jury.
Each showcase featured a four-minute elevator pitch, two-minute product demo, and four-minute Q&A from the jury panel. The jurors this time were Muralidharan Loganathan (Target Accelerator), Anand Daniel (Accel Partners), Suresh Narasimha (Telibrahma), Geetha Ramamurthy (Career Confidence), Prasad Palisetty (Indian Angel Network), K. Vaitheeswaran (e-commerce consultant) and Vivek Pathak (eBay India).
Six startups in digital commerce were shortlisted from over 50 who applied for the showcase; selection criteria included having a minimum viable product (MVP) up and running, and adequate customer traction.
