We built @FoodKhoj for enabling easy food options for students in campuses. As a spin-off from FoodKhoj, we built eRestro - a SaaS based turnkey solution for restaurants. To solve the problems faced in managing group emails, we built the MailSyncr technology, now known by as @Paceable. In the process of running a completely bootstrapped startup, we also conceptualized Fuzzy Angles as a platform to connect bootstrapped entrepreneurs and students in universities.

Schoolflow lets college students automate their homework management. With just your university login information, Schoolflow syncs assignment deadlines, quizzes, and grades in just seconds. How do we make money?- Schoolflow is pre-revenue but we have some ideas in mind- 1)We can leverage student course data in order to display required textbooks at the beginning of the semester and collect commission from affiliate online retailers. We have estimated that employing this alone would generate about $2.16/user/year. 2)Schoolflow can act as a middleman between employers and students. Employers would set parameters based on academic data, and we would reach out to candidates that meet their criteria. Employers save themselves time by talking to only qualified candidates. We would charge a rate per application, so employers would only pay based on the results we generate. We have calculated that if we average 5 recruiting campaigns a month we could generate an additional $10.50/user/yr.
