And The Best Enterprise Startup Award Goes To?
The most interesting bit about this category is the competition between the top 3 players. We had a tough time deciding on the winners primarily because it’s damn difficult to gauge momentum of an enterprise startup. We did a lot of social data mining to gauge and the winner is?
 
 
 
 
 
FRESHDESK!
There are very few Indian enterprise startups who have managed to grow against aggressive (global) competition.  Freshdesk has been innovating and has managed to strike a perfect balance between feature release vs. customer growth.

Go ahead and vote for THE BIGGIES. Today is the last day to vote for your fav startup (the winners will be announced next week).
Following are the different categories under which votes are accepted:
Internet Startup Of The Year. | Mobile / App Startup Of The Year | Enterprise Startup Of The Year| Education Startup Of The Year | Hot & Upcoming Startups | Bootstrapped Startup Of The Year.


We started the biggies awards with a sole focus of building an extremely data-oriented awards function. We took a while to come up with the details and the fun part is that we ended up building a scoring platform that eventually answers:
1. How to score different enterprise startups? (after all, their data isn’t known – the traffic data is definitely not an indicator of sorts).
2. How does one measure consumer startups’ momentum?
Yes – momentum is very different from saying ‘hey! I have got more downloads/traffic’. For e.g. who has more momentum? Flipkart or Snapdeal or Amazon? Let me ask: who has more momentum in seller space? Flipkart or Snapdeal or Amazon? How does one measure that?
We have made a big attempt to solve these and while we share the scoring platforms’ details later, here is your last chance to vote for your fav startup.
Please note that we have loosely used the word ’startup’ in awards categories,  but have actually called the awards as BIGGIES Awards (not StartupAwards), celebrating the rising entrepreneurial spirit and making BIGGIES more realistic and a level playing field (for the industry).
PS : This edition of Biggies awards is V0.1 : We have learned a lot and we now totally understand the scoring piece much better than others in the industry. We have taken a small step, but our eventual goal is to (slowly) open up the scoring piece to wider audience.
