Burrp! makes it big – among the top 30 non-US web2.0 companies

I have always loved Burrp! for it’s organic feature growth – started with one product, built a community and then expanded into other segments (listen to my podcast with Deap Ubhi to know their future plans)
And I am glad to see that Burrp! has made it to the list of top 30 non-US web2.0 companies, and has joined the likes of Joost!.

Apart from Burrp, Pixrat (acquired by MIH) and Khichdee too are in the hot seat [Get the entire list of 30 companies here]

Why is this a big feat? Because sites like Burrp!, which have been successful in driving the community is a slap to those who say “web2.0 is not for India“.

What’s the lesson for Indian startups? – Build products organically. Build communities, not loads of features. Drive the community, get involved with them (cheap ads will not take you anywhere).

Infact, Burrp’s inclusion is a testimonial to the fact that communities aren’t just abut product/feature, but has a lot more intangible value.

Congrats to Burrp, Pixrat and Khichdee! Read our earlier coverage of Burrp! (here and here) .
Hypothetically speaking, which other Indian startup do you think should have made it to the top 30? MingleBox?ibibo?Fropper?MouthShut?

What’s your take?
