Some Indian entrepreneurs have used GIS data to create usable Indian maps catering to distribution needs for corporates. Eicher has created hard copy maps for Dehi. I have two- one in each car.

I think there may be a play to create a startup based on consumer needs for point to point directions. The free to consumer and “google – local” type model is well proven and an exit srategy to be acquired by companies similar to Google is also clear.

The difficult problem is getting accurate point to point directions when there are no easy to read street signs. I think this problem can be solved.

In this area as well I am looking to sponsor entrepreneurs with a viable business plan to present to the “Band of Angels”
