  • How it works: set up internet kiosks in villages and managed by Drishtee-trained locals, providing documentation for license and health insurance.

Venture review on INFO (cont’d)

  • Improving ideas on Prenaro:

    Facts :

  • about India’s mobile ownership: 742.12 Million telephone (landlines and mobile) subscribers and 706.69 Million mobile phone connections as of Oct 31st 2010

  • India has the world's third largest subscriber base of internet users with 100 million users (of whom 40 million use the internet via mobile phones) as of Dec 2010.

Indian telecom facts cont d

Indian telecom facts (cont’d)

  • Internet penetration in India is one of the lowest in the world (8.4% of the population).

  • 90% of Internet users have mobile phones (India’s internet use report)

  • Cyber-cafe is more accessible and cheaper with Rs15-20.

  • 90% of the cyber-café audience, across eight cities and 3,500 cafés, is male and in the age bracket of 15 to 35 years (An AC Nielson study)

What this translates into

What this translates into?

  • 1. access to internet from home is still hard

  • 2. mobile internet is a way to go

  • 3. online subscriber is well educated and could be the target customer of our education-oriented audio platform.

Ventures on maternal health

Ventures on maternal health

  • Social issues: maternal deaths. High new-borne child mortality, a high rate of HIV/AIDS infections .

  • Entrepreneurship idea: to prevent the transmission of HIV between mother and child

  • How it works: modify an existing nipple shield by adding a non-woven disk (cotton-wool) containing a common micro-bicidecompound that inactivates the HIV without harming the baby. 

  • Result: This allows the mother to directly feed the baby rather than having to collect and heat the milk, which can result in social stigma
