The central government, as part of its Make in India initiative, has come up with the Innovation Challenge in April, inviting software companies and developers to build an India based video conferencing solution.
After multiple rounds of screening, MEITY, Govt. of India has shortlisted five companies from 2000+ applicants to build a complete Video Conferencing solution, with a granted amount of 15 Lakhs. Further, the winning solution will be deployed in central and state government entities across the country.
Soulpage is a Hyderabad based two-year-old startup that works on futuristic technologies like Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. Our passion for technology makes us deliver innovative solutions. Our vision is to build enterprise solutions integrated with data science and AI components that are competitively priced to cater to all segments of the market.
“ It’s a matter of great pride for us, to be shortlisted, to build the first made-in-India video communication solution. There has been a growing concern about user privacy, security, and trust in some of the existing video solutions. As an IT superpower, there’s a high expectation in the country to build world-class tech solutions. Government programs like this will encourage startups like us to build innovative solutions at par with global standards” says Murali Karuturi, CEO, Soulpage IT.
Before the Govt. of India called for this challenge, our technology team was working on building next-gen video conferencing solutions to scale the TeleMedicine and E-learning sectors. The idea is to build an intuitive and secure video conferencing solution that is custom-tailored for Indian conditions and is very adaptive. “Libero – Our VC solution can accommodate 300 people in a single conference at this point in time and our plan is to scale it to 1000 people in the future,” says Vamsi Kurama, CTO.
Pushya Mitra, COO is leading this project under the guidance of Murali Krishna, Ramesh Damma, Co-founder of Soulpage IT Solutions.
Soulpage dreams to offer a robust & secured video conferencing platform that is end-to-end encrypted with AI components integrated for more enhanced user experience and easily adaptable by any segment of the Indian market.
