The Most Emerging Startups of 2018 Melior Structural Solutions

Sanjeev Sharma

Most of the world’s valuable companies had great beginnings as startups. In past few years, it was quite difficult to build a large and successful business under the absence of huge capital, like opening a factory or buying a fleet of trading vessels was hard. But today, the scenario has changed, groundbreaking innovations are taking place in a garage, college dorm or a basement. That’s why world is seeing new startups every day. Each of these startups hope to be acquired by a renowned company or make it big in their own right. However, every other wildly fruitful startup, other thousands of startups have fall into obscurity, therefore, startups valued at a billion dollars or more than that are called as “unicorns�, referring to their elusiveness. With the statistics, it’s been recorded that all the top valued startups are mostly based in the China, United States, the Caribbean and Latin America are the liveliest regions for startups. Near about one third of the population of Ecuador is indulged in some sort of business, especially startups. Vietnam, Estonia and Lebanon have felt high levels of entrepreneurial activity. Recent years have filed higher investments in startups, with propelling number of investors are able to recognize the optimized fortune that is achievable by supporting the deserving and potential startup. Although, bringing off successful startup is a team work, however, the credit is bestowed mostly upon the head or founder of a successful startup like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg. Standard University and Harvard University have largest number of alumni who founded successful unicorn across the world. India has also come forward for encouraging and supporting startups. There are many innovative services and products which are implemented by young entrepreneurs. Therefore, Indian government has launched schemes for promoting startups. Startup India Schemes have facilitated a lot of budding entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams successfully, which in turn, created lot more job opportunities. Startups are potential enough to change the world over the next couple of years and more startups will prosper with creativity and innovation. Entrepreneurship will certainly add value to the economic growth of India. Moreover, a small idea when gets actionable may turn into innovative solution. So, if an individual has an idea that may create a difference, then the Indian government suggests not to stop for taking risks and fear of failure.

Sanjeev Sharma Founder


Melior Structural Solutions: Carving Buildings with State-of-the-art Precast & Prestressed Concrete Design & Solutions Melior Structural Solutions was founded by Sanjeev and the other director, Monika in late 2012. Key aim behind finding this venture was to offer structural design services facilitating better & modern construction systems for the construction industry. With precast design solutions, the aim was to provide a better alternative to the existing methods of construction in India. Starting with a small set up, Melior has successfully executed 100+ projects in very short duration for approximately 40 different clients spread all over India and outside India. It became private ltd. entity in 2014 and has been growing continuously at an average of 25 to 30% annually. Melior has evolved in a short duration to be rated amongst the few top precast structural consultants in India. Though the company has had their share of challenges and obstacles on the way, the journey so far has been very satisfactory for being part of the change happening in construction industry for the better.

Incredible Products and Services Offered by the Company Melior Structural Solutions provides structural design services using precast construction method and utilizes 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) for the detailing. It is a niche segment with few service providers and the technology is highly modern, innovative & unconventional. Their services promotes industrialized form of construction rather than conventional site/project based construction and that sets the company apart from other conventional structural designers. The drawings preparation being carried out in 3D environment with the help of advance software rather than conventional 2D environment provides a unique modern experience to the client, architects and other relevant parties as they can better visualize the structure before its construction.

Leaders of Victorious Company Melior Structural Solutions was founded by Sanjeev Sharma, joining hands with other Director, Monika. While Sanjeev manages Business Generation and Operations, Monika handles IT & Finance. He is a university Gold Medalist in BE Civil Engineering and have completed his masters in structural engineering from US. He worked in UAE for around 10 years before moving back to India in 2008 and headed few international companies prior to forming Melior Structural Solutions. The company has employed capable managers and team-leaders who coordinate and assure successful completion of design & detailing projects. During the last twenty-two years of Sanjeev’s career, he has been involved in structural design & detailing of more than 300 small & large scale projects across India, Middle-east, Africa, Iraq etc., using modern construction technologies such as precast and pre-stressed concrete as well as conventional technologies such as cast in situ reinforced concrete, structural steel, etc. Apart from the design projects, he have been promoting precast technology in India via lectures and presentations in several forums organized by institutions / companies such as Hindustan Prefab Limited, Franchise India, Indian Institute of Technology etc.

Accolades of Melior Structural Solutions Melior was awarded among the top10 best start up’s in engineering services by Silicon India in 2018. Currently, Melior is involved in precast structural design of some of the tallest precast commercial and residential buildings in India in addition to providing designs for large mass housing projects. They have partnered with several reputed developers & precast contractors and are assisting them in implementation of this technology for their large scale housing projects whereby completion time can be reduced drastically.


Current Scenario of the Industry and Upcoming Opportunities Construction Industry has traditionally been slow in exploring innovative methods and materials compared to other industries. However, since last ten years lot has happened and it’s accredited to developers and contractors for this paradigm shift where several new building technologies have penetrated India – precast construction method being the most sought after. Credit also goes to new government policies and government institutions such as BMTPC, HPL etc. who off late have invested a lot in promoting newer construction technologies. In addition to that, being an engineering consultancy, the company faced challenges like lack of sufficient codal provisions for precast design in Indian standards posed several challenges in creating the acceptability in the market for precast construction. Researching design methods followed in several developed countries, bringing them to India, getting those vetted in Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT’s) prior to its application helped the company overcome these challenges. Change in existing construction methods is need of the hour. Due to more awareness of end user as regards quality & delivery, shortage of traditional labor, increasing demand for housing etc., there exists large opportunities for those involved with modern construction methods including us.

Meliorism in metaphysical concept is a belief that world can be made better with human effort. Melior imbibes this philosophy in its approach, thus striving continuously for better services & solutions with application of state of the art in Construction Technology.

Challenges Encountered at the time of Inception Like for any other start up, initial years have been tough considering the generation of business and meeting expenses. Being in the niche segment and promoting new technology, the company had to convince hard the clients about the benefits it can bring to projects and to the industry as a whole. Thus, efforts have been on quality service to the clients with focus on their small and big needs getting fulfilled. It helped them retain their clients over long period with repeat orders. Melior Structural’s focus has been more on partnering with clients for a long-term association rather than getting any single project and the company takes pride in completion of 100 plus projects in a short period and are currently offering their services to several major developers/contractors pan India. Another major challenge have been to build and retain a capable team which is well trained and well versed with this new construction technology. Selection of right talent, creating an environment of freedom for learning and performing and regular training/mentoring helped the company overcome this challenge.


Factors that Consolidated the Cornerstone of Company The company’s success is contributed to the expertise they carry in the field, the benefits precast technology brings into the industry, company’s sincerity and efforts towards their work, their persistent focus & investment on innovation & technology had helped them survive the competition and provided regular business from their esteemed clients with whom the company enjoy tremendous goodwill and sense of reliability.

Motivating Creativity and Innovation in the Workspace The company encourage exploration and experimentation in the workplace. They also focus on mentoring, cross questioning, skill enhancing and persistently reward the performers.

Providing Genuine Expertise Builds Long-term Customer Relationship Melior Structural explore the global technologies and is excited to invest in state-of-the-art software such as TEKLA, REVIT etc. for their drawings and detailing deliverables. The company is also excited to help implementing state-of-the-art production systems such as carousel systems, battery mould system, hollowcore/double Tee/half slab systems etc. and state-of-the-art precast accessories such as wire loops, splice sleeves etc. that are going to be the game changers in construction industry in near future. The company’s tactics are fairly simple. Build modern and niche expertise and serve the client sincerely. A genuine expertise is always going to create value. A value once created is always going to bond the company with the client towards a long-term relationship.

Insight to the Future Plans “Melior” is a latin word for “Better”. So in essence company’s prime focus is to keep enhancing and making better their skills and services. This involves research and implementation of newer systems that can benefit the construction industry. Easy and cost effective precast element connections, low seismic damage systems and automation in construction are some of the areas that Melior is working on in collaboration with their clients. The company is further working hard on implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology in their methods of work that is a shift to 3D environment than the current 2D environment of making drawings. They also intend to expand more into Global Market in next three to four years.

Achievements Achieved so Far Some of the ongoing crucial projects of Melior Structural Solutions includes the tallest residential and commercial buildings in India using precast construction method. They are designing 480 villas in Noida and four high rise towers in Gurgaon. They are also designing the precast stadium in Qatar that shall host the 2022 FIFA world cup. The company has just completed B+G+14 storey residential Project in Brigade orchards, Devanhali, Bangalore.

Another project worth mentioning is the mass housing project in Raipur, Chattisgarh being constructed for the Chattissgarh Housing board under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna where 6000 apartments for low income groups are to be constructed in record time using precast construction technology. www.meliorstructural.com


Increasing Investments in Startup with Potential Fortune Many of the world’s most valuable companies had humble beginnings as startups. In the olden days it was extremely difficult to create a large and successful business without a tremendous amount of capital to open a factory or buy a fleet of trading vessels, for instance. But today, groundbreaking innovations can occur in a basement, a garage, or a college dorm. As a result, new startups pop up every day all around the world, each of them hoping to get acquired by a larger company or make it big in their own right. However, for every wildly successful startup, there are thousands which fall into obscurity, which is why startups valued at a billion dollars or more are facetiously referred to as “unicorns”, a reference to their elusiveness. Due to the growing importance of startups, we have selected the key companies with outstanding services in the issue of “The 10 Most Emerging Startups of 2018”. We have chosen Asvin Life technologies which uses innovative technology in the field of molecular diagnostics for countering some of society’s most challenging healthcare issues in India.

He believes that, “The company’s success is contributed to the expertise they carry in the field, the benefits precast technology brings into the industry, company’s sincerity and efforts towards their work, their persistent focus & investment on innovation & technology had helped them survive the competition and provided regular business from their esteemed clients with whom the company enjoy tremendous goodwill and sense of reliability.” Yatin Hans has shed some light on Bigsmall Gifts.

The company is a part of the prestigious 60 year old NSP group having diversified interests in Life sciences, Healthcare diagnostics and Blood Banking solutions.

World-class Products and Services

SAGAR MARWAHA Director

Current Scenario of Cancer Disease in India The most critical issue India is facing is the rate of mortality due to cancer. The value touched an alarming limit of 806000 cases in the last century. Cancer is the second most common disease in India responsible for maximum mortality with about 0.3 million deaths per year. Besides, attempts have been made to describe the main causes of cancer along with their preventive measures. In addition to this, efforts have also been made to predict the effect of increasing number of cancer patients on the Indian economy. In low and middle-income countries, limited access to affordable and quality cancer diagnosis and treatment has contributed to mortality-to-incidence ratios approximately 20% higher than those of industrialized countries.

Company’s Motive is to Overcome the Issues Related to Higher Cost and Turn-around Time The spending on healthcare is invariably growing faster than the GDP. The rate of growth of healthcare expenditure has exceeded that of GDP. Macroeconomic factors like aging population or insufficient public funding are challenging to both receivers and providers of healthcare. These advanced, automated and integrated technologies widen the application scope of molecular diagnostics, they also lead to high test costs, which are unaffordable to huge sections of patients in India. Besides, lack of healthcare insurance and reimbursement schemes for diagnostics, which usually are not considered as important as drugs, further limits adoption in the region. 18


Company’s Success is Contributed to Seeking Cancer at Early Stages The USP of Asvin is to provide fastest solution to the problem related to the field of Cancer diagnosis. With this, the company is able to guide the patient for early treatment of cancer which could save their lives from this deadly disease which is unfortunately at its peak today.

We pledge consumer happiness and health.

BRANDONWHEELZ Pioneers in Car Advertising Services BrandonWheelz incredible journey commenced with seeking solution to two major situations- Striving techniques to capitalize the huge fleet of Taxi’s in the city and bringing in a transformation in an unorganized sector and drifting it into more organized sector coupled with lucrative job opportunities. This triggered them off to the launch a Car Advertising (Transit Media Advertising) agency which was anticipated to be a solution for all their issues and queries. George S. Patton once said, “Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.” Similarly, the biggest challenge encountered by them was to bring awareness in the market about the benefits of Car Advertising, as this type of advertising is ten times powerful compared to any other OOH advertising platform. With all their industrious endeavors, BrandonWheelz managed to become the pioneers in this vertical to efficaciously convinced more than 100 Top brands to try out this platform in India. This out-turned to create job opportunities for 100 plus individuals, created additional Income for over 5000 drivers & used technology with a well-defined process to transform an unorganized & ignorant sector to a booming sector that we see today. Today BWZ has become INDIA’S MOST TRUSTED CAB BRANDING COMPANY.

MR. MOHAMMED ASGHAR CEO

Impeccable Products and Services Offered by BrandonWheelz

BrandonWheelz bull’s eye is solely– Car Advertising. This led the company to have remarkable innovations in the stream of Technology and Process, particularly to cater exemplary customer services to their clients. Being the most trusted and adorable car branding company in India, BWZ use eco-friendly materials for production along with incorporating a transparent process.

A Leader who Brought Major Change to Car Advertising Industry Apart from being an impressive CEO of BWZ, Mr. Mohammed Asghar instinct to help country folks by providing jobs opportunities and bringing in a transformation in the sectors (from unorganized to organized) was the key driving factor to the birth of BrandonWheelz. His expertise on technology and building successful businesses in the past, helped the company to shape up and lead the market share in India. Back in 2016, Transit Media Advertising was a Blue Ocean market. But, at present, the market has a drastic shift to Red Ocean – to an extent that the company motivated even India’s largest taxi service to directly venture into Car Advertising. They are proud of this phenomenal impact that BWZ was able to create in the market.

Achievements and Recognitions from Clients Company’s customers appreciate BWZ and the impact that their brand has created in the market using their platform has not only made them receive shower of positive feedback from all their customers (many of the testimonials mentioned in the website), 42% of their revenue is generated from repetitive customers – which indicates the power of this platform. 20


Current Scenario of Industry According to BrandonWheelz, the current scenario is there is notable shift of market from a blue ocean to red ocean in major cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai & Delhi/NCR. However, the major challenge posed in front of market is lack of clarity on Government/RTO approvals as it changes from city to city.

Major Contributing Factors Behind Company’s Success The major cause of company’s success is consistency. As it’s known that the difficulty faced while working in a new/blue ocean market, results can’t be immediate, a lot of ground work needs to be done and the difference the BWZ team brought in – was the Consistency with which the company executed their job that was backed up with a Goal and Plan.

BrandonWheelz uses Technology & Transparent Process to give Real-time Status of campaigns for our Customers. The 3I’s are the pillar of every campaign we do: Innovative, Informative and Inspiring.

Factors that Contributed to Build Long-term Customer Relationship Media is all about visibility and brand recall, consulting the customer and offering them the right strategies is the key to success. Do not impose or force the customers to buy your media, if it is not a fit or fruitful to a particular product. Setting Goals is important to turn invisible into the visible. They say "Your expertise has tremendous value. You are offering your expertise, not asking to be hired."

Bright Upcoming Future BrandonWheelz plans to expand their business and scale into other cities in India and also kick start their maiden international journey in 2019. The future of car branding is turning it into a powerful digital tool.

“Some gifts are big. Others are small. But ones that come from the heart, are the best of all,” as a famous proverb goes. However, it seems as if we’ve almost forgotten what a gift stands for and what it is meant to convey. This comes as an all the bigger surprise in a country such as India, a country whose very identity lies in its immense ranging diversity - India celebrates festivals of all kinds of cultures, ethnicities, and religions. This creates all the more occasions for gifting from Diwali to Eid, from Christmas to Raksha Bandhan, to innumerable other festivals, as well as birthdays and anniversaries of loved ones. In recent years, Indians have also been warming up to international festivals such as Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving which has made occasions for gifting ubiquitous, almost all year round. With a continuous demand for gifts throughout the calendar, perhaps, somewhat ironically it is a consequence of that that the art of gifting is somehow getting lost in uncreativity and monotony. While on one hand, the number of different occasions should enhance the scope of gifting gifts can tailor-made for that very occasion, bringing in more joy of the festive spirit. But what actually does happen in practice, is that people tend to become lazy, perhaps because of sheer gifting fatigue and resort to generic gifts for all occasions, relationships and personalities such as chocolates and cards which are just about acceptable for all situations, but perhaps not quite the most appropriate.

In the hustle and bustle of today’s hectic lifestyles, thus, gifting is losing its very purpose. What is the meaning of gifts, after all? A gift is supposed to evoke reactions of joy. It is supposed to inspire awe, by being a means of how a person can show another person how much they care about them, and just how well they know them. It should make them smile ear-to-ear at just the act of opening it. The perfect gift should befit the occasion, the recipient’s personality, hobbies and interests generic gifts like chocolates and cards may be okay, but they can seldom create such a wide range of emotions amongst the recipient, which is what the ideal gifts are supposed to do. It’s high time we make an effort to reinject some life into the art of gifting, which is losing its way rapidly. 23


Our company, Bigsmall.in recognized this gap in the gifting industry which was fast becoming monotonous, as gifts started deviating from their intended meaning. We believe that every gift should be unique in itself it should capture the importance of one’s relationship with the recipient. It should remind them of the person at the mere act of looking at it. As a famous quote goes, "Those gifts are ever more precious, which the giver has made precious”. The perfect gift’s pure sentimental value always transcends its material value it should be something the recipient treasures forever, regardless of its actual value. The item should have a surprise element to it too a predictable gift is never an enjoyable one. It should also have some sort of functional utility. The ideal gift sounds well and good in theory but now that you think about it, how would you go about constantly knocking the socks off of different people with different personalities, with whom you share different relationships, on different occasions? At times, it’s the thought that there aren’t enough unique gifts out there that makes us resort to the boring old gifts. In others, it’s the perceived lack of availability which makes you go for cop-out gifts. Fortunately, in the information technology era, unique, quirky and personalized gifts are only a click away, from cosy comforts of your home. E-commerce websites such ours, now cater to this niche market, serving all the personalized gifting needs for people with a variety of interests, likes, differing occasions, and relationships. Know a travel enthusiast? A travel essential to make their next journey more comfortable and memorable could be a thoughtful gift. Is your best friend a sports enthusiast? Then perhaps a unique piece of sporting merchandise or a sport themed goodie could be ideal for their collection. A party animal? Gift them something which will make their next party much better than the previous ones. Superhero maniac? Superhero collectibles are never out of vogue. It’s about providing personalization through the gift itself but also through the whole experience of gifting itself. Providing features such as customizable handmade notes, which add an extra dash of personalization such small tidbits can go a long way in changing a person’s day upside down through a gift after all, the manner of giving is just as important to the art of gifting. The human race prides itself in being the most evolved life form on the Earth a species that is constantly evolving every day, every minute, and every second. We constantly aspire to better our previous selves and advance our race as a whole. Yet, gifting, an extremely vital form of social interaction between humans, is becoming a forgotten art-de-evolving, so to say. “To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift”. It’s time we give it our best bring gifting back with eclectic creativity and show just why we consider ourselves the most superior race on the planet. Author Yatin Hans is the founder of the online creative gifting portal Bigsmall.in. A 27-year-old with a marketing background, his objective is to revolutionize the gifting industry in India with innovative and personalized gifts. His other interests include playing soccer and traveling.

Two Major Challenges: Data and Behavior A hard-core believer of Kelly Cutrone’s quote ―When you're following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first, Pensieve technologies too encountered various challenges. There are two major challenges. First is Data Challenge. One of the major challenges as a start up in the space of ML and NLP is the access to data to experiment and the cost of acquiring data and improve the algorithms. This has been a hurdle that Pensieve had to traverse to get to where it is today. Another crucial challenges is Behavior Challenge. Legal industry hasn’t been very tech savvy for a long time. But, with the increasing amount of data crunching they have become open to adopting new technologies to increase their productivity

Pensieve acts as the repository of organized human intelligence to give insights for precise data driven decisions. Decisions based on data of diverse sources and nature, and knowledge aqcuired from behavioral and domain insights. The Combined factors that Consolidated the Company’s Strength Team: Pensieve Techonolgy has a very well rounded team with a serial entrepreneur, a PHD from US and a business graduate from US as co-founders and resources from top colleges of India as their employees. Right Industry- The Legal Industry has not been disrupted. In the USA alone it is worth $280billion. Top law firm by revenue Kirkland & Ellis ($3.1bn), Latham & Watkins ($3.0bn), Baker McKenzie ($2.6bn). Largest inhouse team by cost: JP Morgan Chase ($222m), Apple($455m), Citi Group ($174m) Machine Learning & Natural Language Processing: These technologies are becoming the main stream technology and customers are more adapting the product driven by AI faster than ever.

Participating in Novel Research Work keeps Employees Motivation Up As a part of weekly work, Pensieve Technolgies take up some research related work there by allowing people to stay close to new research and thereby drive innovation. Clarity on business problem to everyone in the team and conducting brainstorming sessions on how to solve the problem statements. This offers everyone a feel of, sense of ownership.

Insight to have Global Expansion In the upcoming years, Pensieve plans for global expansion. The company is expanding globally starting with Malaysia and Hongkong and plans further expansion into UK and Ireland. Other key step would be to start Data Crunching from Text based documents taken over by AI. www.pensieve.co.in

VISUAL SEARCH Visual search in the simplest terms is searching something using its visuals whether done by human beings with their eyes or by a machine i.e. computer vision. Search on the internet has come a long way from text, voice based, image search to finally visual search. In text search, the search is purely based on the keywords which users are inputting. One should narrate the characteristics of the image which one wants to search on the internet. In some cases it is a difficult task to express the characteristics of an image in words. Voice search was introduced to increase the ease by eliminating the boring keyboard typing and allowing users to search the web using spoken voice commands.

Divyesh Patel

Image search by google was introduced on July 12, 2001 due to a demand for pictures of Jennifer Lopez's green Versace dress that the regular Google search couldn't handle. For the sake of no confusion let’s define image search and visual search. Image search is the search for an image using text or words as query whereas visual search is finding images using images as input query. The results depend on the searched image, its contents, such as metadata, objects, patterns, distribution of color, shape, etc.

Author

Although visual search has immense number of applications in various sectors, it has a direct relationship with fashion and lifestyle industry where products are difficult to put into words and visual search comes handy. Almost all the big brands in online and offline-to-online retail have realized the potential of visual search and incorporated it in their shopping platform. A few of these retail giants being Macy’s , Ikea, Tommy Hilfiger, JCpenney, Target , Forever 21 , ASOS etc. By 2021, early adopter brands that redesign their websites to support visual and voice search will increase digital commerce revenue by 30% - Gartner. 32


Visual search has come along significant changes on its path of what we see and experience today. A lot of companies have been developing their own visual search engines over the years and hence contributing to the technology as a whole. Let’s experience chronologically the big steps taken by various companies which lead to the current evolution of Visual Search: In 2008, TinEye claimed to be the first company to launch reverse image search engine which used image identification technology rather than keywords, watermarks or metadata. In 2010, Google introduced Google Goggles as a tool for the first time to search particular information of an image with the help of a camera, initially designed for Android smartphones. Unfortunately it did not get very popular among the users due to some technical disabilities and Google eventually decided to shut it down. Amazon.com announced fresh visual search capability in its men’s and women’s shoe stores which customers to search and browse for shoes based on how they look. In 2011, Google introduced Reverse Image Search for the web-based image search. Upload a photograph from desktop to Google Images and it will show related images used on other websites and also different sizes of the same photo almost instantly. Amazon launched their first augmented reality app, Flow, which provided both object and barcode recognition. In 2013, Image searcher Inc. launched Camfind, a visual search and image recognition mobile app. It allows users to identify any item by taking a picture with their smartphone. In 2014, Pinterest allowed its users to highlight specific sections of pins to find visually similar pins to the selected section. In 2015, India’s largest online retailer Flipkart added visual search feature to its mobile app. Within a few months of launch the company removed the functionality from the App due to low customer search numbers. In 2016, Microsoft Bing, introduced highlight-specific-sections functionality to its mobile image search. eBay acquired “Corrigon”, an Israel-based startup, specialist in computer vision and visual search technology to build out its search and discovery technology for customers. India based Turing Analytics, launches its Visual search solution for fashion, furniture and lifestyle retailers. In 2017, Pinterest launches Pinterest Lens, a visual search feature on its platform. H&M’s Image Search first launched in May in UK, Netherlands, Denmark and Finland. Google announced its image recognition mobile app “Lens” at the I/O conference in May, 2017. Tommy Hilfiger launched Visual search on their app in a fashion show where audience could buy products by clicking on model’s photo on the ramp and uploading on app. In 2018, Snapchat added visual product search powered by amazon, to let its users identify products just by capturing them with their phone camera.

Microsoft Bing launched new intelligent Visual Search capabilities that build upon the visual technology already in Bing.` Visual searches per month reach 1 billion mark- eMarketer’s 2018 Visual Search report Visual search has still miles to go in terms of going granular into identifying the most minuscule object/parts of objects in any image amongst other data related challenges. It is a continuous process of data training and improvement and will only get better with time.

TARDID TECHNOLOGIES Expands Analytics Offerings with Power of AI The motive behind forming the company, was to find and deliver the actual benefits of analytics to the end customer as well as comprehend the challenges of the real world, to offer a solution which made a significant difference. The name given to the company “Tardid”, is an acronym for “Time And Relative Dimension In Data”, which in knowing sparks large amounts of interests and opens vast fields for research and discoveries. Knowing which technology to develop beforehand was the stepping stone for the company. The idea to start off a company hit in 2014. But a formal incorporation of Tardid commenced in May 2016, which bootstrapped till Nov 17, post which they were looking for first angel funding. Hitherto, the company has successfully accomplished all the POCs and gradually shifted to projects. The company has thrived with its industrious and innovative team members who were burning the midnight oil to make Tardid, a Technology Product company of India.

Pushing the boundaries of AI As a famous person quoted, “We can’t solve a problem with the same type of thinking used while creating them”. In earlier days, industrial maintenance was confined to repairing and companies used to watch and analyse data until a problem showed up - this wasn’t cheap, as it resulted in Unplanned MR. NILADRI DUTTA Downtime and catastrophic events. CEO But, Tardid took an initiative and started exploring the under explored areas of structural and machine science. The company is using the power of Artificial Intelligence to prescribe and predict Structural & Machine Failures. It has developed a digital twin which combines quantum deep neural network and cognitive computing, to detect and identify the complex aging issues these assets face and help the industry to understand the remaining useful life of these assets and most importantly predict the “Time to Fail”.

Brain behind Tardid Tardid is the brainchild of Mr. Niladri Dutta, fondly addressed as Neel. He is the “Architect” of Brainbox, which is the company’s Artificial Intelligence Platform. A complete technology fanatic, he leads from the front for the entire Technology Development and is involved at every single level possible. His energy rubs on the entire team and keeps the team motivated through every project, decision, venture, success and failures. He along with Ms. Aastha Verma, the co-founder, conceptualized Tardid and they ensure to keep the vision of Tardid razor sharp every single day. In the last 20 years, Neel has worn many different hats, starting as a protocol stack person to becoming the business head leading his past organizations to global successes.

Awards and Achievements Tardid has been fortunate to have received recognition from various different communities. Some of the notable achievements are: Finalist $1 Million Global Startup Challenge at Vizag Fintech Festival 2018 Gold Medalist in OSHAI Innovative Startup Product Award by OSHAI 3rd Annual HSE Excellence & Sustainability Award 2018 Winner Innocity Pitch Contest 2018 by IIMA Finalist Open Innovation Challenge 7.0 by NTT Data

The World of Technology is all About AI The contemporary world is tailor-made for the companies who are pushing the boundaries of technology. The entire world has realized the worth of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning but still lack the direction and expertise. The biggest challenge faced by Tardid was to change the mindset of the industry. To make them understand that there is a possibility for a scientific process to understand critical failures proactively, and this in turn became the best opportunity for the company.

Challenges Strengthens the Journey Another challenge was to keep the company bootstrapped for close to 1.5 years. This was intentionally done so that Tardid can develop the technology without getting into the pressure of revenue generation. Other prominent issues were, to find potential technology evangelist customers who appreciate the company’s service and product. Tardid was offering something exceptional and never before seen in the market which made it difficult to convince the customer. But, newer challenges kept the path exciting for the evolution hungry company.

The Mechanical Doctor: ensures sustainability and business continuity against all disruptions and stagnations. Major Factor of Company’s Success is Tardid’s Team While considering the completion of company’s successful years, Neel sincerely expresses his gratitude towards “The Team”. He says, “The team has worked without getting any special benefits and still they have given more than their 100%. We have kept our feet on the ground and just worked really hard and will still continue to do so. We were lucky to have investors who allowed us to focus on product and technology development.” Also, Tardid was conceptualized at presumably the right time, when the world is moving towards the industry 4.0 and availability of the desired resources made it the apt time to work in this area. Furthermore, the aging infrastructure of the heavy industry has created a need for companies like Tardid to provide them with solutions which can help them increase their sustainability.

Motivated Team There is an age old saying, "When you love the work you do, it doesn’t remain work anymore." At Tardid, every individual member has been hand picked for performing the task they enjoy and want to work on. Neel added, “I feel proud to say, that one of our members left his cushy job in Norway to come work with us at a much lower compensation than what he was getting.” Besides that, the company has created such a work-culture where employees are encouraged to bring the difference to a table when opinions mismatch and discuss what fits the best.

Building Long-term Customer Relationships The industries that Tardid works for, thrives on long-term relationships. Moreover, the company builds the business models which offer clients with the flexibility to start small and gradually make it bigger. Tardid believes in long-term relationships with their customers instead of just a retail one-time relationship. They ensure that their customers also appreciate this mutual dependence in order to obtain the best results.

Artificial Intelligence is the Ultimate Future of Technology The industry is evolving, the future ahead is very bright. Someone has correctly said that, “Artificial Intelligence will effect everything, there is nothing it will not touch”, we are just at the beginning of the bell curve of growth. It’s a long journey with global need, increasing every second. www.tardidtech.com
