Weekly Spotlight | 5 Indian Start-ups you should know about.


.1. Glassic:
Glassic was founded by Kailash Nichani & Devesh Nichani for the sole reason to sell great quality, fashionable eyewear at affordable prices.

The founders of Glassic spent their formative years in the traditional retail eyewear industry, where the market perception was “good quality and fashionable eyewear comes at a price.” The founders set out to change that perception.

Traditionally, glasses are manufactured, distributed & sold by a handful of major corporations. Because of this, the prices of glasses are artificially high. By designing & manufacturing frames and sunglasses in house and directly selling them online, we can offer good quality fashionable eyewear at an affordable price.

In comparison to the entity that manufactures, distributes & retails 80% of branded eyewear, Glassic designs, manufactures & sells its own eyewear directly online. No distributors or middleman, therefore no redundant costs to be borne by the customer.

HashtagCVBuilder2. HashtagCV:
Hashtagcv, the newly-launched CV builder and editor, has made assembling a professional-looking CV or resume straight-forward and simple. The site boasts an impressive selection of job-specific phrases and templates, all of which can be edited and altered with the aim of making the creation process fun for the user. The premise could not be simpler, but a considerable amount of depth is being delivered through the CV designer, offering varied customisation options to tailor to each occupation.

Chris Butler, CEO and founder of the company states:

“Writing and developing a CV is something every working person has to do at some point in their lives, it’s essential in fact. What we have tried to do here at Hashtag CV is make that process as simple and stress-free as possible, with a great number of customization options available for customers to choose from, which is unrivalled on any other CV creation sites on the market. For an excellent price, we will enable you to find your dream job with ease.”

Currently being developed for the site is a Job Search Aggregator, a feature which will make the laborious process of scrolling through individual job search site listings a thing of the past; the amalgamation of different site listings available in one location will allow the user to view ALL available jobs from a number of sites at once. This function will hopefully change the way people look through vacancies online for the better, saving a great amount of time which would otherwise be wasted scanning hundreds of pages to apply to just one job.

3. Ekmatra:
