Faridabad, India (PressExposure) April 26, 2013 -- How can India's untapped talent pool leverage its talent and moentize it? That's the question which started it all. Saurabh Pandey, ex-Google, always wanted to create a platform which should help the youth and the women in the country earn money by leveraging their talent or by leveraging what they love to do.
According to Saurabh Pandey, " About 4 million young people graduate every year in India .(This includes engineering graduates), which makes us a nation with one of the largest pool of talented and skilled population in the world. However almost 75% of this population is underemployed and unemployed. If we take last 5 years data- we can fathom that at least 15m youths are underemployed or not employed due to various reasons. Most of these underemployed or unemployed graduates are female homemakers- ladies who married and never worked or stopped working after marriage. Now it is these at least 15m users who will be the first set of users of a platform like http://www.talentcoin.com"
Saurabh also adds: "there are overall 100m + users of internet and most of these are buyers or users with intent to buy. These buyers can get a huge variety of services on http://www.talentcoin.com, which they otherwise cannot get from anywhere. We all can look back in our homes and in our neighborhoods and can find many acquaintances who can teach maths well, or who can make chocolates, or who have a great voice, or are good mimicry artists, or can paint well....the list is endless."
The advantages are very relevant for an Indian user:
1. talentcoin.com is a platform for non-professional users. Common users who love doing a specific thing can offer their services.
2. It's a 2 minute registration process and completely free for sellers.
3. Sellers can sell their services across India, and they don't have to meet face to face.
4. Sellers can service multiple buyers at the same time
5. talentcoin.com has a robust payment platform and all the payments are released only after satisfactory delivery of services-into the bank accounts of sellers.
Saurabh further states that: "We know that our platform apart from being relevant for all talented youths will make the largest difference in the quality of life of a woman and her household . We can make a difference in the perception of independence that she has, and overall make a happy, independent woman population. Imagine a housewife now selling her talent for cooking, pickle making, translation, storytelling, teaching, researching and what have you!"
Saurabh closes with the following remarks: " I think it's apt to dream that our small start-up can boost the Indian economy , today in a small way, tomorrow in a big way."
