Practo is the trusted and familiar platform where people find a healing touch. It connects them with everything they need to take good care of themselves and their family - assessing health issues, finding the right doctor, booking diagnostic tests, obtaining medicines, storing health records or learning new ways to live healthier. Healthcare providers can also harness the power of Practo as the definitive platform that helps them build their presence, grow establishments and engage patients more deeply than ever. Around 50 million appointments are booked every year on Practo with around 200,000 healthcare providers. The app was started by Shashank ND and Abhinav Lal who got the idea after Shashank's father was supposed to undergo an operation but couldn't track the doctor. This motivated them to create a platform where other people could find and fix appointment with a doctor.

NoteMyBook was started early in 2016 by Divyansh Saxena along with Vikramank Singh – both computer engineering students at Vivekanand Education Society’s Institute of Technology (VESIT). NoteMyBook is a platform that allows students to buy and sell books. The website works as the gap between buyers and sellers of second hand engineering books. The students merely have to register themselves with the site as either of the two options and then the company then collects the books from sellers and then delivers them to buyers at their doorsteps.
