Indian start-ups join World Economic Forum’s tech pioneer community

The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Technology Pioneers Community welcomed 100 new start-ups, including five Indian companies. These businesses are expected to pave new roads in fields like healthcare and food production. 
 
Vahan, a full-stack labour marketplace for blue-collar employees, was one of the Indian companies that joined the community. Pandocorp, the world’s first open-market freight management platform, Proeon, Asia’s first circular economy marketplace Recykal, and SmartCoin Financials, a tech-driven financial inclusion platform empowering the underserved, are among the companies included. 
 
Vahan is a technology business headquartered in Bangalore that helps companies like Zomato, Swiggy, Flipkart, Uber, Shadowfax, and others hire blue-collar labour. Y Combinator, Khosla Ventures, Founders Fund, and Airtel are among their backers. 
 
Nitin Jayakrishnan developed Pandocorp, which provides “network-powered all-in-one freight automation for fast-growing firms.” Proeon was founded by Ashish Korde and Kevin Parekh with the goal of “facilitating better eating, conscious consumerism, and cruelty-free food habits for long-term impact.” 
 
SmartCoin Financials was formed by Rohit Garg, Amit Chandel, Vinay Kumar Singh, and Jayant Upadhyay with the goal of using technology to solve the problem of financial inclusion.

“The 2022 cohort of Technology Pioneers is already delivering enormous improvements to industries around the world,” said Saemoon Yoon, World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers Community Lead. By joining our network, these emergent tech leaders may continue to demonstrate not only their organizations’ outstanding technological accomplishments, but also how they are contributing to a better future for all of us.” 
 
According to the WEF, more than one-third of the selected enterprises are led by women, which is much higher than the industry average. The 2022 Tech Pioneers hail from 30 countries, with Vietnam, Rwanda, and the Czech Republic making their debuts. 
 
Airbnb, Google, Kickstarter, Mozilla, Spotify, TransferWise, Twitter, and Wikimedia are just a few of the companies that have previously participated. During their two years in the community, the 2022 cohort will be invited to attend WEF workshops, events, and high-level conversations.
