Hot and happening Websites from BigAdda , Fropper , Indyarocks to smaller sites like Tagz.in have made it to Dataquest’s list of the 25 Hot Indian Web 2.0 start-ups . The research is part of technology publisher CyberMedia’s effort to highlight the fast maturing and growing segment of online business in India .

PowerPoint Presentation:

The list, prepared by Dataquest, with help of Indianweb2.com, that tracks Indian start-ups in the technology space in general and web 2.0 space in Particular, is an interesting mix of social networking sites, tool makers, rating sites , and creators of close-knit online communities and collaborative mobile applications. “ India’s 25 Hot Web 2.0 Start-ups” is the first such list created in India and will be a part of the May 15 issue of the 27-year old magazine . The final list was prepared by the Dataquest editors, from 54 companies that were shortlisted based on a set of parameters . “India has the potential to significantly drive the direction in which web 2.0 is moving . Micro-blogging and video streaming are the future of Web 2.0 along with “niche” networking, be it on a friendship portal or around communities ,” says Shyamanuja Das, Editor, Dataquest, who led the project. The Web 2.0 hit India only 3 to 4 years ago. The editors of Dataquest have identified a set of reasons for the late adoption of Web 2.0 in India. These include low Internet penetration, limited access devices, low adoption of web-cameras , recorders and high-end phones .

PowerPoint Presentation:

What is Web 2.0? Tim O’Reilly, the tech Guru who popularized Web 2.0 describes it as the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as platform , and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform . Chief among those rules is this: Build applications that harness network effects to get better and get more people use them. It means: collaboration, user participation, user generated content. Based on this definition, Dataquest defined a set of guiding rules and used them as filters before getting to subjective selection of the applications/companies . The rules may seem a little restrictive but the editors have made attempts to define what the editors meant by Web 2.0, Indian and start-ups. Hot being the subjective part .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Methodology The Dataquest editors began with a long list of 54 companies, headquartered in India, based on a set of parameters. Companies with collaboration or Web 2.0 attributes core to their business model were considered. (For example, the photo printing sites such as itasveer , picsquare and zoomin , that have collaborative functions but their core business model is traditional printing services, were excluded.) Companies that began operations on or after January 1, 2007 were considered. Start-ups that qualified the above parameters were considered even if their parent companies were established companies, such as Reliance ADAG in case of BigAdda or HT Media in case of DesiMartini . Then Dataquest editors and Indianweb2.com technologists applied more subjective parameters like reach, impact, innovativeness of offering etc. to create the final list .
