Startup: SECUREFIRE SAFETY INDUSTRIES
Founder:  Premendra  Singh 
Website name:  

This startup is into developing innovative heat and fire protective material, established in Dec 2016.  This material can withstand up to 500°c temp for more than 1 Hrs time as tested in IIT BHU under the supervision of Dean R&D Dr. Rajeev Prakash at IITBhu  (while others can’t sustain up to this temperature and time or can sustain only upto 10 seconds only and create itching to human skin while in touch with it).  At the same time this material doesn’t transfer heat from one end to other and does not catch flame as well.  This material will be used into making fire suits, blanket, fire doors and lots of other products wherever heat and fire protection will be required. In our next level we will try to develop materials which can sustain up to 1000°c. 

Its a DIPP certified startup having its technical mentor team from IIT Kanpur. Its patent papers are already published in around 150 countries through PCT and published in India as well.

Understanding the existing problems that one faces in their day to day lives and more importantly providing a solution for the same is what a USP of an entrepreneur is. Driven with this zeal, Sanket Panchal designed and manufactured Backpack Dispensers to serve both hot and cold beverages. It is believed that every solution comes with an observation and what influenced the founder and director of Sequors Equipment LLP, Sanket, was seeing the difficulty faced by the tea vendors in serving hot tea and coffee at stations, trains, public places, tourist destinations, corporate offices, etc. 

It is nothing less than a challenge serving hot beverages to multiple customers at the same time, meeting their demands and collecting money while carrying the tea urns in their hands. It is difficult, messy and uncomfortable. To address this common yet significant issue faced by the most, he came up with a thought of redesigning the concept of tea urns and kettles by designing and manufacturing insulated bags to carry such beverages. This bag come with additional pockets for carrying cups and other addons. The product is completely safe to use and carry. Not just this, Sanket has also created around 100 jobs in just a year.

Startup:  VARDAN
Founder:  Abhimanyu Rathi and Vardan Rathi 
Website name:  www.slii.in 

VARDAN is a low cost multi-stage water purification system powered by dye sensitized solar cells. It is developed by Sustainable Livelihood Initiative India (SLII) Pvt. Ltd. Half of the rural water supply is routinely contaminated with toxic bacteria. India’s rural poor are highly vulnerable to the harmful effects of contaminated water as 2 out of every 3 households still do not treat their drinking water. 

The problem in urban slums is still worse where people are forced to buy water from street vendors. Most of the current technologies available to combat this problem revolve around point-of-use membrane based technologies with reverse osmosis (RO) machines being the best example of it. They are very expensive, unsustainable, waste a lot of water and consume too much power to be effective. 

The solutions that do not consume an excess of power generally require expensive and time-consuming filter maintenance. In order to counter all these problems, with over 8 years of research, SLII has developed a water purification system called ‘Vardan’ that is cheap and user friendly and runs on natural energy. Water is purified within 10 seconds using very smart adsorption based technology.

 . By using a threeway process, the outlet water quality comes well under the notified limits of Indian Standard Specifications for Drinking Water (IS: 10500) making water 100% safe to consume. There is no wastage of water and no external energy is required all of which is achieved at negligible maintenance costs. The shelf life is upto 10 years due to smart use of nanotechnology and with per litre water purifications cost as low as 8 paisa. With this, it will become the cheapest water purifier in the world.

Startup:  YOTTOL
Founder:  Saptrashi  Das 
Website name:  www.yottol.com 

Yottol (Yotta Byte + Black Hole) is trying to bring in innovation (with incremental change), transparency, cost efficiency and advanced technology in financial products distribution in India and potentially globally later on. Alternatively, in a simple sentence, “Yottol is trying to build the Amazon of financial services in India first, i.e. focus on almost 0% errors and solving remnant issues with ownership.” Yottol was founded in 25th of July, 2015 and was incorporated as a Private Limited company in 29th of August, 2017. 

We are a customer first Captech | Insurtech | Investech company in its truest sense. Yottol continues to believe that Financial Services will still be a relationship driven industry, in contradiction to prevailing beliefs. What will change is the value proposition that an advisor brings to the table for a client and Yottol wants to create just that.

 We believe that technology will just be an enabler for more efficient and appropriate financial service product distribution. While there are many new players in this industry with disruptive ideas, they have been unable to break the traditional model. Our analysis results in a conclusion that incremental change on the traditional model will be more successful as a strategy and a business model.
