Bipin, started the afternoon off with an introduction to MobiKwik and their offering. MobiKwik launched just 2 months ago and currently is focused on mobile pre-paid recharge in India. MobiKwik wants to offer the first comprehensive list carrier agnostic PULL services. MobiKwik plans to add additional features and services in the future, some of which will be comparing plans across all Indian mobile operators.

Manish Rathi from GlobalLogic was up next to talk about opportunities in the health care space in India. Manish had a great presentation and the audience was extremely vocal about a few points that Manish made. Take a look at Manish’s post for the slides and his thoughts on presenting at Startup Saturday.

Rajeev discusses RockeTalk

Finally, Rajeev Kumar, CEO of RockeTalk was up to discuss his innovative startup. Rajeev’s presentation was only 3 slides but it also ran the longest. For a few minutes, I thought security at the American Center would have to walk us straight from the auditorium to the exit. However, Rajeev was gracious enough to continue the discussions in the atrium during the networking hour. RockeTalk has brought voice-based ‘chat rooms’ to smaller cities, towns, sub-urban and rural parts of India by developing a small downloadable app that allows people not connected to the Internet to use their mobile handsets to communicate with others, using voice and GPRS (sorry, no 3G in India yet and probably not for a while longer).
