Mr. Daxeel Soni has completed in graduation in computer engineering. He believes that entrepreneurs, startup enablers and community initiators always start their morning with fresh news and updates from startup world. These people visit different sites, blogs and uses apps of different media companies and/or celebrity pages. He felt the need to devise an algorithm wherein instead of searching everything manually; the algorithm will find the relevant information all over the globe and deliver the most relevant content every 30 minutes! Waw, what an idea!! This will surely kick start my day.
It took Daxeel mere a week to find the solution and this is how Startup Around was born!
Mr. Daxeel built a prototype of aggregator. Aggregator is kind of software or application which compares information from different websites, organizes them and presents them to user. It simplifies the tasks for user and give him/her insights. Mr. Daxeel built the prototype and he surely knew that it will work and it worked!
Mr. Daxeel’s startup analyzes popular content from global startup communities of different domain or subjects from different publishers and brings it under one roof.
“Startup Around is an intelligent, automated & algorithamically designed platform for Entrepreneurs. The content is being generated automatically from the internet after analyzing trends, social media and popularity to deliver you the finest content from the global startup community”
It sounds easy and cheesy but it isn’t. It is an interesting fact that Mr. Daxeel and team took no external funding. They started everything on their own! The team faced technical challenges to analyze thousands of content posted on internet; sort it based on trends, social media and buzz. They solved these hurdles with the help of technology and with their unique algorithm.
They use ‘Python’ language and ‘Flask’ which is a micro web framework written in Python. They use ‘Numpy’, ‘Pandas’ and ‘Spacy’ libraries of Python.
Within the first week of launch, Startup Around garnered the following-
- 2200+ unique users
- 4000+ pageviews
- 85+ countries touchdown

Quite impressive, isn’t it? Did I told you about their achievement during their graduation?
