Rahul Yadav former CEO of housing.com and very well know as “Bad Boy of Indian StartUps” and Ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh very well know as “Play boy” came together to build intelligent startup “Intelligent Interfaces”.
Yuvraj singh’s venture arm YouWeCan ventures has made undisclosed investment in this yet to start venture that aims to help governments work efficiently with the use of big data and intelligent algorithms. Earlier Rahul yadav got backed from CEO of flipkart Sachin Bansal and co founder Binny bansal.
According Rahul Yadav’s Facebook post
“Intelligent Interfaces has selected 18 ministries in the Government of India to build revolutionary products for (yes, India needs them!). Where can we make the biggest and fastest impact? What are your ideas on how to do it?”
Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare
Ministry of Civil Aviation
Ministry of Culture
Ministry of Defence
Ministry of Finance
Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation
Ministry of Planning
Ministry of Railways
Ministry of Road Transport and Highways
Ministry of Rural Development
Ministry of Shipping
Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation
Ministry of Panchayati Raj
Ministry of Tourism
Ministry of Urban Development
Ministry of Law and Justice
Ministry of Steel
Ministry of Food Processing Industries
Ironically Ministry of Health which needs major change is missing in his list.
A senior entrepreneur operating in government business shares his opinion on “Intelligent Interfaces”
“While people are funding this venture by considering the charisma and energy of Rahul Yadav. Working with government is not like and B2C or B2B business. And most of the access to the department happens with heavy lobbying and political influence. And believe me “Governments are not looking for anything intelligent” and a broken system always leaves a room for bureaucrats and politicians to mint money, In this entire business the easiest part is to build the product. PR this kid has got would have been very useful if he develops something which is consumer facing.
Hope he takes off this time with out much rough patch with investors.
