Story of Brand

Entrepreneurs do not have a specific designation. To become an entrepreneur it is not necessary to do some specific course. But one should have the vision and hope to build a better future for others. Startups always strive to bring new technology or services to make people’s lives better. Some entrepreneurs have the vision to follow. Even they will be building business ideas on their passion as well. Incidental entrepreneurs are those entrepreneurs who will instigate or be inspired by specific events. Those events have made a deep impact on their life.  So, those will devote their heart and soul to building startups to solve specific problems.


Even Practo startup has started on one such incident. Shashank ND is a Btech graduate from the National Institute of Technology in Karnataka. Once Shashank ND’s father was suffering from knee pain. So, Shashank and his father consulted the doctors. Finally, his father undergoes knee replacement surgery. But also his father is so suffering from knee pain severely. So, Shashank ND was in search of the best doctors. But he could not find any platform where he find the right one. As a result, he was frustrated and helpless. Finally, Shashak ND found the doctor and he told me to send the report’s photographs. But the doctor was unable to view the report as it did not appear clear. The format was not supported to get the best clarity. So, the doctors once again told me to send the report via mail. Then Shashank consulted the doctors and was told to bring the hard copy. As doctors had only the option to view the reports from his software. There were no other options like printing or sharing in that software. Then Shashank ND understood the poor quality of the software.


Targeting these doctors or clinics would be a challenging task but they would have a large enough market even if it does not focus on the members of the old-school healthcare system.
