Last year, we were the winners of “Startup of the Year” at TiECon. It is a prestigious award especially since this is the biggest gathering of entrepreneurs in Kerala. This recognition gave us the confidence to work on bigger challenges in our mission, “Revolutionise Transport on Water”. The complexity of problem increases with either the speed, range or ratio of cargo weight to boat weight. Passenger ferry, relatively, is an easy problem to solve since passengers are light cargo. Now we are working on four areas – RORO ferries (that can carry vehicles), Fishing Boat (small 30 ft), Patrol boats (for Navy and Police) and High speed hybrid ferries.
The TiECon award also gave us lot of reach to potential customers and industry stakeholders. We are trying to support this event in every way possible to express our gratitude and work towards improving entrepreneurship in our state. As I firmly believe, “entrepreneurship = nation building”. This year we also look forward to know who are the winners.
