Thursday’s SURGE startup picks

Thursday’s SURGE startup picks

December 3, 2015 by Anna O'Hare

Join us in India and exhibit at SURGE

Less than 3 months to go before startups are roaming the exhibition floor at SURGE in Bengaluru. Here are four that I’m particularly looking forward to meeting.

Branch Metrics

Branch Metrics were one of the standout START exhibitors at RISE in Hong Kong and at Collision in Vegas. They were rated as one of the ten fastest-growing startups at the latter.

The Palo Alto-based company specialise in deep linking – highly personalised links within mobile apps – and are integrated by thousands of amazing partners like Ebay, Tripadvisor, Microsoft, and Instacart.

Branch are now valued at $75 million, and are backed by NEA, Greylock Partners and Redpoint Ventures to name but a few.


Teknorix is a leading software development company in India providing expert IT solutions to global clients. The company was founded by Bhavit Naik & Yashvit Naik, both brothers who eat, drink, sleep and dream software.

At the moment they have a strong focus on enterprise solutions, mobile app development and outsourced product development. They’re all about building risk-free technology.


These guys recently raised a $4million round led by NEA and Orios. Intelligence Node is a big data firm helping brands and retailers with pricing and merchandising analytics.

Based in Mumbai, this big data analytics startup serves retailers. They claim that their technology allows retailers to reduce their merchandise life cycle from six months to ten days by recommending prices and identifying items that are underperforming so they can be cleared from inventories.

Surpluss recently entered the marketplace model with the launch of its fashion category featuring brands such as Tommy Hilfiger. In April, they bagged the “Speciality e-Retailer of the Year Award”. They are a leading store for unboxed, refurbished, surplus and new product deals.

Join these startups and many more at SURGE.
