Kochi: Finahub Internet Services LLP, a start-up based out of the Startup Village in Kochi, has been chosen as one of the top 10 start-ups to watch out for in 2013. Finahub provides a SaaS (Software as a Service) customer management platform for retail broking firms in India. Their product, Kinship Platform, acts as the one place to go for managing all the customer interfacing activities of a retail broker. 20 start-ups under three categories were announced last week by Startup Village.
Giving away the certificates, Kris Gopalakrishanan, Infosys co-founder & Chief Mentor, Startup Village said, “We need our own Facebook and Google. The start-ups should scale up and become household names and change the face of Kerala. In the near future, each start-up will come up with solutions, products, new ideas, jobs and change the environment of the State”.
Interacting with Kerala IT News, Ajith K George, co-founder & CEO, Finahub said, “To be frank, I never expected this coming to us. We are very happy to receive this from a man who is our role model. We are very grateful to the Startup Village team and our clients for all the support they have given us.”
Kinship Platform enables retail broking firms to improve customer engagement, achieve higher operational efficiency by automating processes and get better understanding of their customers using all the customer interaction data available on the platform.
“Although the company was incorporated in 2010 in Trivandrum, we officially started our operations in early 2012 with Hedge Equities as our first client. Recently we moved our location to Startup Village as Kochi is the idea place for hot start-ups like us. We have bootstrapped till now with our own funds. Right now we are focusing on getting some more clients as we are expanding our marketing and sales operations to Mumbai, Ahmadabad and Delhi in the next one year. We are also planning to start the process of raising capital in the next one year”, added Ajith.
