Discussion on Startups in the City

One common feature of the startups these days that is most interesting is that they are all about providing spatial connectivity. There are services that help people book restaurant tables and get reliable home deliveries from restaurants. Some that book orders for home chefs and delivers the orders to homes and offices. Some that connect autorickshaw and taxi drivers with commuters. Some are about recyclable waste pickup. These are all interesting and exciting. It would also be great to get a peek into their databases. They would reveal so much about the nature of our cities. But apart from that intellectual curiosity, it is also interesting to see the different kinds of projects being undertaken by startups and the strategies they employ.
