Making India Local for Vocal and Aatmanribhar with eSamudaay, Anup Pai
Anup Pai is the founder and the brilliant brain behind eSamudaay, India’s first community commerce platform which hopes to facilitate community commerce across cities and towns in India by utilizing the nation’s entrepreneurial strengths. To encourage entrepreneurship and build an e-commerce network between vendors and buyers in smaller towns without the top-down strategy of a big firm, the technology platform is comparable to a plug-and-play system.
As India prepares to realize its goal of becoming Aatmanirbhar, it is essential to ensure self-sufficiency to meet local demand. Small businesses are starting to understand the power of technology and how going digital will affect their sales and marketing in the modern world. Anup Pai founded eSamudaay in July 2020 in order to make it as simple as possible for local communities to profit from digital solutions, allowing for the growth and development of their own e-commerce and network infrastructure.
Prior to that, he launched Fintellix, which created analytics-based compliance and risk management software for banks and other financial organizations. The business, which has offices in both India and the United States, provided services to major banks like BoA, Citibank, BNP Paribas, ICICI, and HDFC. Anup left Fintellix in 2019 and has since invested in and mentored entrepreneurs, focusing on those that are establishing their companies using decentralized digital technology.
Anup centered much of his attention on centralization, but there was a trend toward decentralization that allowed the lesser players to benefit from technology. In order to help people create their own enterprises using its technological platform, eSamudaay was established.
The startup’s platform is initially being used to provide local communities with ecommerce apps.
The Bengaluru-based firm claims to be adding about 10 dealers per week and is already operating in the Karnataka town of Udupi, which is known for its temple.

Turning Food Waste Into Meals for Needy with Feeding India, Ankit Kawatra
More people die from hunger worldwide than from AIDS, malaria, and TB combined. Every year, approximately 31 lakh children die from malnutrition. 16.1 crore children worldwide experience hunger and malnutrition. One in nine people on the planet, or nearly 79.5 crore people, are chronically malnourished, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. It is estimated that 27.6 crore people in Southern Asia, which includes Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India, are chronically malnourished. The majority of undernourished people in the world live in India, where more than 20 crore people go to bed hungry every night.
At the age of 22 years, Ankit Kawatra founded Feeding India with the straightforward goal of bridging the gap between hunger and food waste. The non-profit social venture seeks to address India‘s issues with hunger and food waste.
When he attended a lavish wedding in Delhi where more than 35 different cuisines were served, he became intrigued about what happened to the leftover food. When he contacted the caterer, he was shocked to learn that all the additional food, enough to serve close to 10,000 people, would be wasted. His life was profoundly altered by this dawning realization. Ankit persuaded his friends and coworkers to help him gather leftover food from weddings, parties, canteens, restaurants, etc. to give to people in need over the course of the following few weeks.
More than 1.35 million meals have been given to individuals in need by Feeding India as of this writing. By doing this, it has prevented the loss of food valued at about Rs 3.75 crore. The organizational structure is straightforward. Contacting Feeding India via their email, mobile app, or 24/7 hotline is a great way for those who have extra food to give. The extra food is then gathered from households, weddings, or dining establishments and given to those without access to it.
Embracing the world of Chai with Chai point, Amuleek Singh Bijral
Amuleek Singh Bijral is founder of the biggest organized chai retailer in India, Chai Point which offers working professionals a perfect combination of chai produced with natural ingredients. The brand is also extending into retail locations including business parks and airports.
Since the beginning of his MBA programme at Harvard Business School, Amuleek Singh Bijral had the desire to launch his own business. However, he was unsure of the opportunities available. He started working for an IT company after arriving back in India, but he was still adamant on starting his own business. He saw how meticulous everyone was about their tea breaks at work. He was captivated by a gathering of individuals leaving a shanty tea store and became aware of the necessity of chai shops in sizable innovation parks. On that day, he made the decision to leave his firm and embrace the world of chai.
The first day’s difficulty was to instill confidence in his younger staff members who were concerned about being branded as chaiwalas, so they set up several programmes. They have a solid team of 825 individuals working with them now, including professionals with backgrounds at Starbucks, Café Coffee Day, PepsiCo, and Oberoi. He made an effort to personalize and update the tea-drinking experience by maintaining reasonable costs for excellent quality coupled with digital transaction options. By utilizing biodegradable cups and supplying electric scooters for delivery, he has also made it environmentally friendly.
With more than 300,000 cups sold each day, it has emerged as the most well-known chai brand. In eight cities, Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, and Chennai, it now has more than 100 service facilities. The firm is getting ready to increase the number of hot beverage vending machines and has announced the addition of facial recognition for regular customers because the customer experience is their top concern. With a face scan, customers might swiftly pay their bills and get substantial rewards for doing so.
