Kisan Network is a Y Combinator and Thiel Fellowship backed online platform for Indian agriculture. We enable small and marginal farmers across the country to sell their produce directly to businesses, using their smartphone. No middlemen are involved in the entire process as Kisan Network takes care of everything else, from the farm to the buyer’s doorstep. There are more than 100 million cultivators in India whom we need to serve and we have an ambitious vision for an open and free online agricultural market in the country, that clocks in at around $200 Billion.
Our investors, which includes Y Combinator and Thiel Foundation, agree with us. We are the first and only (till date) from an Asia focused startup to be a part of both Y Combinator and the Thiel Fellowship program. Kisan Network has been also covered by the likes of Forbes, TechCrunch, CNET, The Economic Times and numerous other national and local dailies.
We have a team comprising of both 20 years of experience in technological applications for rural distribution in India and also, prior startup experience in the technology product space.
We help smart, enthusiastic and passionate students go from amateur to pro developer in 13 intense weeks. After training hundreds of students in web development, we've carefully crafted our curriculum to be effective, fun and packed full of the skills that are most in-demand in the developer job market. We believe being a programmer is an awesome and supremely fulfilling job but that it requires more than technical chops to be great.
Survata is a fast-growing measurement technology company that provides advertising measurement and market research to the world's leading brands and agencies.
The Survata platform provides the world’s fastest way to measure the branding impact of advertising, and measure the behaviors and opinions of consumers. The company is headquartered in San Francisco and backed by leading Silicon Valley venture capital investors.
There are 2 proprietary components of our technology:
1.) Front-end: publisher integration kit that powers SurveyWalls for any content type (article, download, video, etc.) on any device (desktop, tablet, phone, etc.)
2.) Back-end: advanced analytics engine to screen out suspicious responses. We consider signals such as answer speed, answer patterns, respondent's previous answers, and more.

SimplyInsured is revolutionizing the $17B health insurance brokerage market. We have thousands of delighted customers, and everything we do is driven by our mission: to eliminate fear from health insurance. We are backed by YCombinator and some of Silicon Valley’s top entrepreneurs and investors.
SimplyInsured is a 100% online and 100% paperless platform to get quotes, purchase, and administer small business health insurance. We use technology to give our customers complete price transparency. We're not only revolutionizing an industry, we're improving (and sometimes saving) lives.
SimplyInsured has two major technological advantages.
First - we have taken a 100% paper, fax, phone, mail, and in-person process - and made it 100% online. For the last 50 years - health insurance COULD ONLY be purchased through a brick & mortar broker and REQUIRED at least one phone call. In contrast - our online flow is completely self-service.
Second - our insurance algorithm can parse insurance plans, convert them into a cost model, and model estimated costs. We are the only platform that can tell you that asthma treatment will cost $600 under plan A, $400 under plan B, and $100 under plan C. Our technology allows us to answer these questions for over 400 medical conditions and 600 prescription drugs - we have the ONLY universal cost calculator for insurance on the internet.

Plivo is a fast-growing cloud telephony startup backed by the same investors as Skype, Facebook, Google, Dropbox, Lyft and Airbnb. We've raised $2M thus far, became profitable over an year ago, and are scaling exponentially. We are looking for people who are excited to grow with us and have a direct impact on disrupting the multi-billion dollar telecommunications space.
- Amazon Cloud doesn't work for telephony, Hence we run our telephony stack on bare metal servers to ensure high QoS.
- We've built technology to scale the telephony servers the same way websites use Amazon to scale their Infrastructure.
- Our platform supports integration with any standard IP phone, which means the existing ecosystem of devices just work with our platform.
Changing the way cancer is treated is our personal mission, which starts with putting patients first. We’ve developed an individualized laboratory testing service for cancer patients and their doctors. We screen thousands of FDA-approved drugs against the patients own cancer cells to identify drug combinations that can be immediately prescribed by their doctor without a clinical trial. By repositioning treatment as a patient-centered service we can unlock the power of modern data science and laboratory automation to achieve the promise of combination therapy and personalized medicine.
Our investors include Founders Fund, First Round Capital, Y Combinator, several prominent angels and seed-stage funds, and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, a venture philanthropy firm founded by Steve Case. We have offices and a laboratory in San Francisco’s SoMa district.
We’ve developed a high throughput robotic testing platform that uses a patient’s live tumor cells to predict the safest and most effective treatment combinations. We employ an ex vivo assay to survey thousands of drug combination options. To ensure our translational system is predictive we’ve created a proprietary method to mimic the microenvironment of the human body. Our drug panel includes all approved chemotherapies and targeted agents, as well as generic non-oncology drugs that have published anti-neoplastic evidence.
We prioritize the safest combinations from our viability assay by estimating a therapeutic index. Successful hits are counter-screened against normal human cells to determine a customized, relative drug scoring system for each patient. The end result of our process is a CLIA certified report which prioritizes therapeutic options that could be used by the physician and patient.
Our mission is to change the way cancer is treated, through innovative functional testing aimed at helping patients today. We’ve developed a personalized treatment service for cancer patients that prioritizes combinations of FDA-approved treatments that can be immediately prescribed by a doctor.
Focusing on individual patients and existing treatments, we’re discovering novel uses of drugs and defining mechanisms underlying development of cancer progression and drug resistance. Using modern data science and robotics, we’re building a scalable, iterative model that ultimately will turn treatment selection into a data problem. We use these same tools to turn scientists into “super-humans” so our research team is hampered only by our imaginations and not by time spent pipetting. We partner with biotech and pharma companies to get the right drugs to the right patients and improve clinical trial outcomes for exciting and novel therapies.
We are obsessed with building amazing products and delivering exceptional value to customers. We are looking for high-energy, natural leaders who love to win.
