Let us protect ourselves from Mobile Radiation.

RADBLOK

Mobile phones have emerged to be the dominant accessories in our day today life the way we wear cloths.  We display with pride our mobile phone(s).  We tuck them close to our body.  We feel possessive about our mobile phone. But what is not known to many of us is that mobile phones emit microwave radiation [RFR] which is quite harmful to our health.  Many research reports and government health agencies have felt that RFR is like a slow poison and may cause cancer in few years or few decades depending upon extent of exposure and its duration.

Maxwell Research, Hyderabad is a three year old research firm which is primarily engaged in the research, design, development and manufacturing of anti radiation devices and more.  One of its products RADBLOK is an anti radiation chip which protects mobile users from the hidden dangers of mobile radiation.   RADBLOK is the only chip which has received CE Certification which would mean that RADBLOK complies with all relevant essential requirements (e.g. health and safety or environmental requirements) laid down in the applicable directive(s) and the same has been examined by an independent conformity assessment body.

Ever since its launch thousands of mobile users started using RADBLOK.  It is being sold across cities through its dealer and distributor network.  Significantly RADBLOK is also available on the shelfs of MedPlus Pharma outlets.

It is time that we use RADBLOK to protect ourselves from the dangerous RFR emitted by Mobile phones. Significantly, RADBLOK is a mouse click away here.

Top 10 Business Opportunities for year 2015

Posted by on Nov 24, 2014 in Business, Start-up business | 13 comments

Top 10 business opportunities in 9 business sectors for year 2015

India definitely is traveling on a progressive and visionary path.  Progressive path would mean new job opportunities and attractive self-employment sources.  Newness may be triggered by capacity addition by existing businesses, diversification by existing businesses, budding young entrepreneurs or foreign investments flow.

Compared to the last five years I find these days an increased momentum among first generation business aspirants.  I am receiving more enquiries and more serious seekers for first time business guidance.

Today’s market is in a position to accommodate any number of new entrants and innovative offerings.  We find a positive momentum around us in the market.  Mission Make in India and resultant momentum and the stability factor of government at center are the driving factors for this positive trend.

However, growth and progress should not be linked to the growth and expansion of business by existing business owners or foreign investments.  Growth in first generation or new generation businesses symbolizes true growth.  There is a huge mismatch between the efforts of government and the attitude of lending institutions.  Aspirant young entrepreneurs are facing denial of service attitude from banks.  Credit raising scheme like CGFT which is supposed to be the harbinger of newer entrepreneurship opportunities is standing as a stumbling block owing to bank’s reluctance to rightly assist the credit aspirants.  Government should address this gap on war footing basis.  Otherwise we will lose bright ideas and young innovations from newer generation.  Make in India is a laudable effort.  But we also need to create an avenue for Made in India and Made by Young Indians.

I would become very emotional if I continue on the above deficiencies in the system.  I would now focus below sector wise top 10 business opportunities in 9 industry sectors [90 business opportunities] for the year 2015 and further. To understand the statistics of growth in various industry sectors you may visit http://www.ibef.org/.

EPMWORLD Service diagram

There are many more services that industry promotion institutions provide to a startup business.

Startup founders, however, would ignore the effort of research and exploration and thus work with insufficient data.  Moreover, the prime focus of startup founders mostly targets loan procurement.  Banking institutions in India are not startup friendly.  The schemes like CGFT and its provisions are grossly under utilized owing to touch me not attitude of several bank authorities in accepting CGFT based loan applications.

Considering the above it is important that startup founders should explore various government provisions and then approach financial institutions with right documentation for loans or incentives.

The other option is to engage a consultant who would enlighten them on various related activities to setup a startup.

Here are some links that would help startup founder to explore data on some of the above aspects.

The above links are just indicative.  There are many more institutions and several more URLs to explore.

You may also like to explore various pages of this blog related to government schemes, project loan process, startup business ideas, idea evaluation, entrepreneur qualities, branding, online reputation and many more business aspects.  Should you need more information may please leave your comment herein.  I would try to answer your queries that falls within my scope.
