We all know Bangalore is a Hub of startups but now Delhi-NCR is becoming the new home for startups.
In this story, I’m sharing 10 new age startups (with unique Ideas) from Delhi-NCR. Enjoy!
1. StartUp Monk
StartUp Monk is an end-to-end startup ecosystem enabler and a community platform bringing all stakeholders of the Indian Startup Ecosystem together. It aims to help aspiring entrepreneurs build innovative businesses that disrupt traditional and upcoming industries by helping startups in areas such as investment, business strategy and legal affairs.

There has been an explosion in Online Learning hence acquiring skills has become easier than before. There is one element is that is missing from all these courses - retention. Humans tend to forget 90% of what they learn in the first 28 days unless an attempt is made to retain the information.
Research has shown that low stake spaced out tests are the best way to engage students helping them retain information in the long run.
myQs uses this as a premise to help users retain their skill sets via its unique gamification platform. myQs currently has more than 26,000 downloads and close to 1 Million unique responses on its platform since its launch in February 2019.
The venture is bootstrapped so far by the cofounders – Rishi Rais and Dhawal Sehgal, both graduates from the University of Pennsylvania holding a Master’s degree in Computers and Information Science. myQs is part of the Wharton VIPC Incubator as well as part of the Amazon EdStart Innovator program. myQs plans to be “The skill sharpening app” for all disciplines requires continuous learning and retention.
Mobile first has been the calling for all digital content startups in current times and they have been a frontrunner in penetrating mobile-based content discovery space.
Anurag, a SIDMBA pass out from IIT Delhi started Tnine with Rahul, an alumni of Delhi University and later joined by Jitendra from FGIET. Having worked in different companies they understood the dynamics of content space. They developed an app named Crumblyy which soon became a major hit in USA and was being noticed in India too. Having found a rhythm, they built a team and soon became self-sustaining.
Content space has been facing a crisis because of its clutter and they want to solve this problem. Crumblyy delivers byte-size content in immersive formats such as images, videos and short-crisp texts. Due to its massive advantage over other long-form content platforms, Crumblyy has acquired more than 1.5 million users, with an average of a million card reads every day.
