We all want faster delivery of our products right? Rivigo is trying to solve this problem by its unique solution, even better than couriers and is one of the most innovative startups in India. Trucks are usually responsible for the delivery of goods, and trucking in India is in bad shape due to driver shortage.

Many long-distance trucks have two drivers, taking turns to sleep. Other trucks have only one driver, fighting sleep (most often with medicines). Rivigo has replaced this with a relay system. Each driver drives 4.5 hours to a company pit stop and hands over to another driver who again drives 4.5 hours to the next pit stop and so on. According to Rivigo, this cuts delivery time for Bengaluru-Mumbai from 110 hours to 44 hours. This is twice the speed of some courier companies and maximizes truck utilization.

They also promise delivery from anywhere to anywhere in India in just 3 days, against the industry delivery standard of 7-8 day.

4. Flyrobe

Flyrobe - Innovative Startups in India

Now tell me the truth, What do I wear for this wedding/party/meeting? isn’t one of the biggest problems in our life? Sometimes what looks good on you, is really expensive to buy. But don’t worry, some IIT Bombay graduates came up with this innovative idea.

Flyrobe is a shared virtual closet for women who need to dress up really good for that perfect occasion.

The idea is this: Flyrobe stocks designer stuff, dresses and accessories every fashionista wants but is unaffordable for them. So, to solve this issue what Flyrobe does is: they offer these on rent. You choose from their collection, pay a fixed nominal rental amount irrespective of rental period and they ship it to you. Once done, you simply ask them to take it away, and they will come to pick it up from your home.

Isn’t it a life saver for all woman. (Just being sarcastic, ha ha!)

Most of you must be knowing about inshorts now a days. It is an app which cuts down all News to 60-word short.

Azhar Iqubal, Anunay Arunav of IIT Delhi, and Deepit Purkayastha of IIT Kharagpur started in 2013, News in Shorts. Their view was that though the youth of the country were ready to spend hours on Facebook or Whatsapp, they were not even aware of the most important news topics of the day.

From their personal experience, they knew that it was not easy for a youngster to keep up with the news because of the sheer volume and number of stories published every day. So they decided to start a service that provided summaries laden with only facts and figures, devoid of opinions to make it easier to consume for the youth and those who are short on time.
