The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - STARTUP STORIES - Man­ish Choudhary

The idea:

The Pit­ney Bowes Ac­cel­er­a­tor Pro­gram is an en­deav­our to align our­selves with new tech­nolo­gies and part­ner in In­dia's tran­si­tion into a dig­i­tal econ­omy, says Man­ish Choudhary, SVP, global in­no­va­tion & MD In­dia, Pit­ney Bowes. Star­tups in the pro­gram work in ar­eas of cus­tomer information man­age­ment, mo­bile, data an­a­lyt­ics, lo­ca­tion-based ser­vices, e-com­merce man­age­ment and ma­chine learn­ing.

Ben­e­fits to star­tups:

Ac­cess to Pit­ney Bowes soft­ware APIs (ap­pli­ca­tion pro­gram­ming in­ter­faces) and data, train­ing, tech­ni­cal and busi­ness guid­ance, and men­tor­ing by Pit­ney Bowes’ engi­neer­ing and in­no­va­tion leaders and soft­ware in­dus­try ex­perts. It also comes with the ben­e­fits of Pit­ney Bowes al­liances with Mi­crosoft for Azure cloud cred­its and Vis­ual Stu­dio sub­scrip­tions, with Dig­i­talOcean, which fo­cusses on sim­pli­fy­ing cloud in­fra­struc­ture for soft­ware de­vel­op­ers, and con­nect with F6s, one of the largest tech startup com­mu­ni­ties glob­ally.


star­tups have a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of their prod­uct land­scape and are able to adapt their go-to-mar­ket strate­gies and com­pany roadmaps to scale and grow their busi­ness fur­ther,” said Choudhary.

Progress: Suc­cess sto­ries:

WeDoSky is a drone startup with a map­ping and an­a­lyt­ics plat­form, founded by Jaspreet Makkar. It works with com­pa­nies such as NDTV, VH1, Amity Univer­sity, Su­pertech and Am­ra­pali. “The pro­gram helped right from tech­nol­ogy & sales hand­hold­ing to in­sights from global ex­ec­u­tives. It helped us leap to­wards build­ing WeDoSky into a global data science com­pany," said Makkar. EasyLeadz, for­merly Spon­si­fyMe, is a re­al­time geo-lo­ca­tion-based mar­ket­ing plat­form for off­line busi­nesses. Pit­ney Bowes APIs have helped them scale data en­rich­ment ca­pa­bil­i­ties. EasyLeadz works with com­pa­nies like Mi­crosoft, Ola, and Droom. eCouri­erz.com is an on­line au­to­mated lo­gis­tics so­lu­tion provider cater­ing to the needs of do­mes­tic & in­ter­na­tional re­tail and cor­po­rate cus­tomers. eCouri­erz cur­rently of­fers doorstep pickup from over 100 cities in In­dia and con­nects to more than 15,000 pin codes in In­dia and to more than 200 coun­tries.

“Our star­tups use new tech­nolo­gies and solve big prob­lems at scale, both in In­dia and abroad. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from our pro­gram, UN­DER­STAND­ING THE LAND­SCAPE: The ac­cel­er­a­tor has men­tored 18 star­tups
