Unveiling the IBM SmartCamp Bengaluru Regional Finalists for 2015 - YourStory

India is big. India is diverse. India is also clustered. And this clustering is spilling over into the software product industry as well. In the past few years, not only have we seen a large number of B2B SaaS product companies emerge, but also gain solid customer momentum. And still, because they’re B2B, enterprise startups are often not the companies you hear about. After all, they’re not in the business of creating shiny apps that people use every day. Enterprise startups are the ones that build the right products to help companies create value for their customers, increase efficiencies, and reduce costs. And these are the startups that very often earn a steady stream of revenue.

As part of IBM’s Global Entrepreneur Program (GEP) and its ongoing commitment to foster innovation among entrepreneurs, IBM GEP launched SmartCamp, a competition for B2B startups in India in 2014. It was exciting to see startups battling it out for the top spot at the regional finals held in Bengaluru recently. The enthusiasm and excitement was nothing short of contagious! Parablu, Whatfix and Flutura has emerged as the winners for the Bangalore Regional Round. They will be pitching in the Grand Finale.
