    Our team has created a QnA app for students, Qwolla.
    The app is targeted for students where they can ask any question related to their subject of study, career or college. And the questions will be answered by other students across the country who are in the same discipline or college as the student who asked a question. In that way, app shows only the curated questions that are relevant to the students.

    While posting a question students can select whether they want to post a question in their major, in which case question will appear to all the students in the same discipline, or whether they want to post a question in the college, in which case question will appear to all students in the same college.

    Students can ask question by typing a text, taking a picture and also scribbling over the picture.

    Questions are presented to students in the form of a card, only one question at a time. Students have to swipe down the card to be presented with another question.

    Currently the app is launched in India and is available on Android and IOS.

  5. StartupWave says:

    StartupWave is a new virtual incubation platform which aims to “democratize incubation”, and is a a one-stop service providing a blend of virtual and in-person support to take startups from idea to investment. It was designed in collaboration with over 100 entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and incubators; and is a bold new approach to supporting startups in India.

    The offerings are divided into two segments – pre-incubation services consisting of business model design and validation support for idea to pilot stage startups and incubation services consisting of lean prototyping, mentorship, business services, R&D and other support for early to growth stage startups. At the end of pre-incubation; startups are chosen to be incubated by any one of the 24+ incubator partners of StartupWave or be virtually incubated on StartupWave and at the end of incubation, they pitch to a network of over 350 investors.

    StartupWave’s long term vision is to work with thousands of entrepreneurs each year, and complement the work that accelerators and space incubators do.
