Gurgaon based GHV accelerator has invested $100K each in two startups. One is Applop app, which allows its users to develop their own app without worrying about coding. The other startup is CaRPM, which is an app that connects car owners to their cars. This investment is a part of GHV’s plan to on-board 10 startups by March 2016.
Applop is a Kolkata based startup founded by Rahul Singhal in 2015. The company allows amateur or non-technical users to develop their own apps without writing codes and building wireframes. Users can create app by registering to it. You just have to select theme and features for your application. Then just upload your descriptions. After completing these steps, your app will go live within 12 hours in Google Play Store.
Applop app is mainly very useful to the small and medium business owners, who want to start their own mobile app for their businesses. It also allows them to integrate their app with a payment feature. The startup also provides some other services like digital payment wallet and push notification facility to its users. Applop is a subscription based app, where its users have to pay on yearly contract basis. The price of its subscription varies from $10 to $15 per month.
CaRPM is an internet based automobile app, which was launched by a team of four IIT Guwahati graduates. This app connects car owners to their car and gives some valuable information that helps them to save money on its running cost. The information given by the app includes car’s overall health, its day-to-day performance, rising fuel cost analysis, individual trip costs, fault codes tracking and other maintenance related information.
The app also gives you tips to improve your car’s health that makes your car maintenance easy. Car owners can take smart decision about their cars based on the CaRPM data analytics. The startup is also planning to introduce new features that will connect its users to nearby mechanics.
GHV accelerator was founded by serial entrepreneur and Indian Angel Network member, Vikram Upadhyay. The firm aims to provide capital and mentorship to the startups. GHV have also invested in other startups like LazyLad, My Taxi India, Foodport, Pick My Laundry and FitMeIn.
