First Runner Up


GoVidyouth Mobility

Founder: Rutooj Deshpande


Large number of people around the world use two wheelers for everyday commute. The existing IC engine based scooter are not only polluting but are also expensive to use (Rs2/km). At the same time the electric scooters have issues such as high upfront cost, limited driving range, lack of charging station infrastructure, low top speed etc. GoVidyouth Mobility tackles these issues with our patent pending extended range electric two wheeler technology. With GoVidyouth a user will save about 30-40% on total cost of ownership. By simple charging the vehicle at home a user can drive a distance more than the average commute distance on charge battery. For any longer drive the onboard engine generator assists the baatery for vehicle propulsion. The total driving range would be 200km So there is no range anxiety and no need of charging station infrastructure. At the same time the vehicle has excellent performance with top speed of 80kmph.

Second Runner Up


Jeevtronics pvt ltd

Founder: Ashish Gawade


Sudden cardiac arrest kills 6-7 lakh people annually in India. This rate is 3-4x higher compared to the developed countries. Reasons: Lack of stable grid electricity and affordability. Similar is the situation in Africa, SE Asia, S America. This defibrillator has built in power source and will work in rural remote villages too. The cost is also 1/4th of the big brands. This a great boon for primary health centers, community health centers, sub-centers and even ambulances which do not have inverters+ batteries (99% of Indian ambulances). Since the grid electricity problems in Africa, S America, SE Asia are similar to those in India, all low and middle income countries (LMIC) will benefit from this product. These countries loose 1.8 million people annually to sudden cardiac arrest. Worldwide the market for defibrillators in USD 11 Billion. Great export potential exists for this product. Presently, Indian market for defibrillators is about 70,000 units annually. 80% of these either are refurbished 10 to 30 year old devices from abroad or from low cost, low quality countries. All these poor quality, unsafe devices could be replaced with a world quality Jeevtronics San Mitra 1000 HCT defibrillator. This will save India a minimum of USD 100 million per year in foreign imports. We aim to take a lion's share of this market in 3 to 5 years.
