Hitting Chauka after Chauka after Chauka :-)
Getting recognition is always nice. And we were all pleasantly surprised to be featured in yourstory.in. A thank you to Jubin for creating such a buzz around Chauka.in. He wrote so well we might even link his article as our about page. Check out his take on Chauka cricket app here.
“Chauka has been built with the aim of having every cricketer (school, college, club, corporate or even at a galli level) on a single platform and score every match and every tournament. “It’s a way for amateur cricketers to find other players more easily, to play more, and to cherish for life every score you’re proud of,” says Manoj (of Chauka.in). The app and platform is free to use and the current revenue stream comes via offering customized solutions to Clubs, Academies and Event organizers. Going forward, Chauka also wants to offer each player detailed statistics and chart his or her entire cricketing path.” Read full article here http://yourstory.in/2013/03/chauka-a-cricinfo-for-amateur-cricket/
To top all that, it was a dream come true when we got a pat on the back from Harsha Bhogle. He had read our story and tweeted about Chauka cricket app! We were ecstatic!
Success after success seemed to follow. Chauka has some serious business potential. Vouched by the fact that we got chosen as the top 12 promising ventures from Pune.
“The Microsoft BizSpark program provides technology, support, visibility, and community to promising start ups and entrepreneurs at no charge.” We entered our names for the program. Apparently we scored! Our idea of promoting amateur cricket app showed its solid backing when Chauka was one of the regional finalists of Microsoft Bizspark.
Nasscom has started the 10,000 start-up initiative this year. It’s purpose is “to support technology entrepreneurship in the country. The anchor sponsor of the program is Google and founding sponsors are Microsoft & Verisign. The program aims at creating 10,000 tech start-ups in India in the next 10 years.” We were happy to be accepted into the program. Chauka will now receive improved support and exposure that is essential for further growth.
We’ve been getting a lot of attention recently. And I mean the good kind. 30000+ likes on Facebook are a testimony to that fact. And our posts reach 1.5 lakh people. The Chauka cricket app is making great progress as the perfect platform for any kind of cricketing activity.
Join all cricket fanatics as we connect all the cricketing dots, forging amateur cricket links from one end to the other end of the world.
