Healthcare

A startup with its heart in the right place: Tricog wants to save lives, but can it build scale too?

The time taken to rush a heart attack patient to a hospital in India is five to six hours. In most cases, patients don’t get treatment in the first 60 minutes, the crucial period that determines the chances of survival. A startup wants to change that through an algorithm-focused approach. Under Tricog’s model, generating an ECG report and getting it vetted by a team of cardiologists takes less than six minutes.

Logistics

BlackBuck, with Maersk, is eyeing a multi-billion-dollar pie. Can it do to trailers what it did to trucking?

Freight transactions to and from ports in India are still carried out using pen and paper. Visibility of trailer movements is poor. In such an environment, BlackBuck’s deal with Maersk, the world’s largest container-shipping company, signals the first steps towards digitising the process, and opening up a market in which 30 million containers move across the country.

Ed-tech

Unacademy has scored an A grade in valuations. Can it now ace the subscription test with Plus?

Unacademy has seen a meteoric rise both in terms of valuations and market presence. It now wants to expand with the launch of Plus, a subscription model, and build a paid-user base with strong engagement metrics. However, despite the ease of use and promises to make the best teachers available online, the path to building and sustaining a paid model has been slippery for most players. Can the Bengaluru-based ed-tech startup buck that trend?

E-commerce

Fall of a unicorn: Can ShopClues find a white knight to claw back lost turf from Flipkart and Amazon?

Three years since its headline-grabbing fundraise, ShopClues’ journey has changed course for the worse. The online shopping platform, run by Gurugram-based Clues Network, has of late been surviving on bridge rounds, with its existing backers throwing in a lifeline. But with a large base of upwardly-mobile customers and a huge data trove on their buying habits, ShopClues has reasons to be optimistic, as India’s tier II market remains underpenetrated.
