Kisan Network is a Y Combinator and Thiel Fellowship backed online platform for Indian agriculture. We enable small and marginal farmers across the country to sell their produce directly to businesses, using their smartphone. No middlemen are involved in the entire process as Kisan Network takes care of everything else, from the farm to the buyer’s doorstep. There are more than 100 million cultivators in India whom we need to serve and we have an ambitious vision for an open and free online agricultural market in the country, that clocks in at around $200 Billion.
Our investors, which includes Y Combinator and Thiel Foundation, agree with us. We are the first and only (till date) from an Asia focused startup to be a part of both Y Combinator and the Thiel Fellowship program. Kisan Network has been also covered by the likes of Forbes, TechCrunch, CNET, The Economic Times and numerous other national and local dailies.
We have a team comprising of both 20 years of experience in technological applications for rural distribution in India and also, prior startup experience in the technology product space.
Our team is passionate about travel - between us we've hiked to Everest Base Camp, toured almost every corner of South East Asia, traveled the United States for a year in a Winnebago, and visited 80+ countries. If you love travel, this is the place for you.

The team at Tenjin is small but we are growing. All of us feel passionately about doing work that matters and our vision is to create a fundamental shift in the way mobile marketing is done throughout the mobile app industry. Working at Tenjin will provide you with many opportunities for growth and leadership in addition to working at the cutting edge intersection of data and mobile marketing. If you’re looking to work in an exciting environment with smart, talented people who value good people and good ideas, we’d like to talk to you.
We are reshaping the mobile marketing landscape by breaking down data silos and building up an integrated data platform to replace the disparate, a la carte services in use today. We manage mobile growth infrastructure for our clients, dynamically managing and organizing the deluge of data generated by mobile devices and marketing channels.
While remaining focused, driven and ambitious, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We enjoy great food, great company, and great coffee (all of which are provided for free!). We believe everyone here at Tenjin has the ability to contribute great things and we enjoy learning from each other every day. Team players who are also self-directed achievers will enjoy the balance of flexibility and collaboration that is an important part of the work culture at Tenjin.
We've built a robust and scalable system that plugs into a ton of ad networks and pulls customers' data into our own databases. The system was architected to work with up to hundreds of ad networks while carefully monitoring them for changes, downtime, and other failures. We've also designed our service to be very flexible, making it super easy to add support for more ad networks.
We also group together campaigns across different ad networks to make our data simple and accessible to app marketers with minimal configuration.
We've also been playing with a few big data solutions for user-level acquisition and business intelligence data (Redshift, Elasticsearch, etc).

As of 8/12, we have been live for 3 weeks. We have had well over 45,000 visits and currently have 14,000 active users (people that have built financial profiles).
In phase 1 (next 6 months) we will be direct to consumer through our web and tablet applications.
In phase 2 we will also pursue B2B opportunities where we will private label our technology platform to power advisory tools on 3rd party sites.
We simplify complex financial decisions (home purchase, family / retirement planning etc). Our web app uses our financial modeling platform to provide automated, personalized financial advice.
The app creates interactive, graphical analysis of affordability, financing alternatives, cash flow, tax consequences and ultimately of how a user's decision will impact his or her net wealth over time.
SimplyInsured is revolutionizing the $17B health insurance brokerage market. We have thousands of delighted customers, and everything we do is driven by our mission: to eliminate fear from health insurance. We are backed by YCombinator and some of Silicon Valley’s top entrepreneurs and investors.
SimplyInsured is a 100% online and 100% paperless platform to get quotes, purchase, and administer small business health insurance. We use technology to give our customers complete price transparency. We're not only revolutionizing an industry, we're improving (and sometimes saving) lives.
SimplyInsured has two major technological advantages.
First - we have taken a 100% paper, fax, phone, mail, and in-person process - and made it 100% online. For the last 50 years - health insurance COULD ONLY be purchased through a brick & mortar broker and REQUIRED at least one phone call. In contrast - our online flow is completely self-service.
Second - our insurance algorithm can parse insurance plans, convert them into a cost model, and model estimated costs. We are the only platform that can tell you that asthma treatment will cost $600 under plan A, $400 under plan B, and $100 under plan C. Our technology allows us to answer these questions for over 400 medical conditions and 600 prescription drugs - we have the ONLY universal cost calculator for insurance on the internet.
Our customers are researchers at leading pharma/biotech/academic labs all over the world. Some of our largest user bases exist at institutions like Stanford, Columbia, University College London, and thousands more.
We are busy building a platform that will help life-science researchers manage resources in their labs, streamline communication among lab members, discover and review products, store data, and more. This is no small undertaking. If we succeed we will fundamentally accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. If you wanted to use your technical skills on real world problems that make a difference to real people, here is your chance.
You will be a part of a small super-smart closely-knit team. Ajoy and Jayant know each other from their days at IIT (10+ years). Adam and Jayant know each other from the time they were both at Columbia University (5+ years). We get along really well and are looking for people who are ridiculously smart, friendly, and want to work hard to make a difference.
You will work out of our sunny office in downtown Palo Alto [https://www.quartzy.com/careers] with great perks, a fun-loving team, and an opportunity to work on something huge.
Since developers often do not have any meaningful exposure to the life-sciences market I think that it is worthwhile to give an example of the size of the opportunity. Consider Veeva Systems' recent IPO [http://techcrunch.com/2013/10/16/veeva-ipo/]. Veeva develops collaboration tools for large pharma. Stunningly their market cap is $2.5B after raising only $7M. We are tacking an opportunity larger than Veeva.
The Quartzy platform creates an online distribution channel for the life-sciences market. Disrupting the life-sciences market is a huge opportunity. We are VC-backed with funding from Khosla Ventures along with prominent angels like David Sacks, Jeremy Stoppelman and others.
Coinbase is a platform that facilitates the easy conduct of digital currency for consumers and merchants. This includes the buying and selling of digital currency, secure storage of digital currency in the cloud, and a suite of merchant tools.

We've built the first secure, hosted bitcoin wallet. Preventing fraud and scaling are difficult challenges here. This platform will power the future of payments both internationally and at home in bitcoin.
At Paperspace, we're rethinking cloud computing from the ground up.
Every day we work with some of the most interesting technologies, from low-level streaming to GPU infrastructure to the latest in software defined networking. The speed of light comes up in conversation more than you'd think.
The company was founded with the premise that cloud computing is incredibly powerful but unnecessarily complex. We're building a simple layer on top that constantly forces us to define and redefine what it means to engage with the cloud.
Paperspace is a fast growing Y Combinator backed company. We're building a vibrant community spanning individuals, startups and the enterprise.
