Pramod Varghese – Ubikwites – Sprout Venture Partners Fund
At the Connected Ideas With Money session this morning, Pramod Varghese pitched Ubikwites – a Mysore-based Startup that provides tech-driven global Marketing, Sales and Export Management services.
“Majority of Indian manufacturers of engineering goods, organic chemicals and Biotechnology products (sectors the startup is currently focussing on) – either struggle or never go out to sell their products in the International markets because of the efforts, time, money and knowledge required to venture into global trade,” says Pramod. “To the buyers this translates to lesser leverage. They do not get access to the products and services offered by various manufacturers at competitive costs.”
Ubikwites provides a web-based platform integrated with automation & data analytics technologies for digital marketing along with a trained techno-commercial sales force to represent and market these manufacturer’s products globally. This adds a revenue stream to manufacturers at no additional cost and a digital medium for buyers to explore, evaluate, buy and import products to their countries, hassle free.
