2015 @BabyChakra - A Year to Remember for sure!
The beginning of a new year always brings new hopes and dreams. At BabyChakra, we had a particularly exciting 2015 and needless to say, and have already pinned a long list of goals to accomplish and dreams to realize in 2016…
We, in fact, achieved quite a bit as a startup focused on helping Indian parents find what they need. Come, walk down the lane with us!
1. The most recent, yet the most successful was the BabyChakra APP launch in the 1st week of December! The APP is for Android users and we feel rather loved by the response we have received from parents! In fact, it was trending on Google PlayStore in a week of its launch and has been nominated by Yahoo news as a "Brilliant App for parents". iOS or Windows users have an equally good option in the new mobile web version in an all new design.
2. Several accolades came our way this year. Leading Indian and global Inc publications like- Businessworld, The Economic Times, Inc (Ranked us one among the Top 10 best company names this year), CNBC Young Turks, Firstpost featured us pretty prominently. BabyChakra is one of the top 20 startups in India, which was chosen for mentorship through Google Launch Pad and one of the awardees at the prestigious Wharton India startup competition. In fact, we even conducted a survey with Businessworld on pre-schools in India. We are also on YourStory's list of 100 startups this year which are unstoppable! We got placed in Wikipedia too.
3. We reached out to parents at Corporates through innovative workshops. It was wonderful to be able to connect the parents with a specialized trainer and learn together! Here's a glimpse of the workshop on 'Tips to spend quality time with your child' that we did at CitiBank.
Another very unique workshop on 'Únleash your voice' happened at KidZania which was well appreciated.
4. We carried out a series of Live Chats with experts in different fields on critical care child care topics like Breastfeeding, Selecting a school curriculum, Child's Immunity, Babywearing and gynecological health of women. All of them got an excellent response! If you couldn't make it to one of these, catch up on the transcripts in our Learn section.
5. It's no secret that we have a soft spot for our MomStars :-) So we developed new ways of recognizing those who are actively helping out in building BabyChakra through their reviews on child care services!
7. We connected with several brands like KidZania, Teddy Diaper, Pinkathon and reached out to many more young parents. In fact, if you visit KidZania, don't miss to pick up the monthly newsletter specially crafted for young parents! Zany Parenting has been co-created with KidZania.
8. We produced a couple of very interesting and informative videos with a few of our services and got a lot of other useful videos for our parents on our site.
9. Our Learn section is abuzz with many interesting articles on almost every aspect of child care and development! Check out our new collections for every life stage - whether you are planning, expecting, new parent or a toddler. You can read exactly what you need for your lifestage if you login through our Android APP.
10. The most touching stories of the year are perhaps these - A mother of an infant writing to us for help when her baby is very ill and asking for advice (we helped her with expert advice), or one asking where will she find a certain product (we help find her the right store in her area)! And getting constant feedback from mothers on our APP and website everyday! We are ever so grateful to all such mothers who keep us going!
So if you are a parent reading this, get the APP or browse on Web today and log on to find everything about child care. And if you are an expert or service in the parent-child space, reach out to us and we can help you connect with several young parents.
Wish everyone a very happy and prosperous New Year 2016! Stay connected as we are all about being a part of a shared journey.
