FixNix is proud to be part of the "Startup India, Standup India" movement of Prime Minister of India, on the Government of India's invitation.

Addressing the nation on the 69th Independence Day, Narendra Modi announced this campaign to promote bank financing for start-ups and offer incentives to boost entrepreneurship and job creation by saying

We are looking at systems for enabling start-ups.

We must be number one in start-ups... Start-up India; Stand up India.

Again he followed up with his Dec'2015  MannKiBaat monthly radio addressing to the nation on All India Radio as a voice to the general masses of India about

Jan'16 BluePrint Day for the movement.

Can India be a 'Start-up Capital'?

On January 16, the government of India will unveil the full Action Plan of  Start-up India, Stand-up India...

A structure will be presented before you.

This should not be limited to only some cities but spread to every nook and corner of the country.

FixNix got Invited by Mr.Ravinder IAS, ‎Director at Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion(DIPP), Government of India among the handful they have selected from 1,000 s of startups across the country.

The first request on Dec 24 came from DIPP was to submit our story as video to see whether they can feature it on the workshop day.

4-Jan-2016, 4am IST Update
Finally we have made the 1 minute video for  DIPP showcase selection.
Music director Ilayaraja came handy with his latest peppy number to convey our peppy aspirations. Wanted to highlight our Tamil culture in this national forum in case if we get selected. Let's dent it !
Share your thoughts, likes in our youtube channel itself.

Still thinking and preparing a theme for the video of story.

Anybody want to help us in making this video, write to , we've one week left..

Here's the formal invite which came on Dec 27 for the Jan'16 National "Startup India, Standup India" blueprint workshop and launch in New Delhi.

I want FixNix to win badly in such forums, as we are great living proof that we neither have a mammoth investor group backing us, lobbying for our win, nor some political or influential GodFather

Kindly wish us luck.... :-)


Even President of India recently endorsed this program and requested the youth of India to pursue Entrepreneurship.


During his Silicon Valley, he has gathered lot of inputs from all the Valley Mammoths and mandated DIPP to run this "Startup India, Standup India".

PM plans digital cloud for every Indian to free up service delivery

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's next big push to free up service delivery from the hold of the lower bureaucracy will be in the form of a 'digital cloud' for every Indian. Certificates issued by the government - education, residential, medical records, birth certificates etc - are to be stored in individual 'digital lockers' and a communication protocol established for government departments to access them without physically having to see the hard copy. Information and technology secretary Ram Sewak Sharma, who is overseeing the ambitious programme of the government, told that this was one of the ideas Modi had frequently flagged as something that would resonate with all Indians.

Cisco CEO John Chambers thinks PM Narendra Modi can “turnaround” India

Aug 15, 2014 3:18:16 AM / by Shanmugavel Sankaran posted in India, Blog, CISO, CISO CEO, Narendra modi


Amid gloom over flat forecasts and job cuts, if there is one arena that is looking up for Cisco-it is India. Networking giant Cisco announced in its quarterly results today its intention to cut down 6000 jobs as the company struggles to sustain growth.

Most of Cisco's woes are related to the dismal, mostly negative growth in some key emerging markets. Two key markets where it suffered was China, where product orders fell 23 per cent, and Brazil, which faced a decline of 13 per cent.

India, as a market, however, has bucked that trend for Cisco. India grew at a healthy 18 per cent for the company, even as the remaining emerging countries in Asia actually declined 34% (excluding China and India). Cisco's overall APJ business was down by 7 per cent.

"We saw the impact of economic and geopolitical challenges in China, Brazil, Russia, Argentina, Turkey, and Thailand and in a number of emerging markets that many of other peers are seeing. These declines are reducing our growth by several points from what was expected and typically seen. Unfortunately as we look out we don't see emerging markets growth returning for several quarters and believe it possibly could get worst," Chambers said during the earnings call.

Chambers however, displayed great enthusiasm around Cisco's prospects in India. "There are some bright spots for the first time in a while. I think Modi in India is going to turnaround that country. You can see the enthusiasm both the citizens and the businesses there are betting on a single emerging market. I would bet on India right now in a big way."

Cisco's high-end routers and switches declined 7 per cent and 4 per cent year-over-year, respectively, as customers were slow to order a new series of products. Its data center revenues rose 30 per cent, and security sector revenues rose 29 per cent. Cisco posted a smaller-than-expected 0.5 per cent dip in fiscal fourth-quarter revenue to $12.4 billion.

Chambers recently visited India and is said to have held high-level talks with the Modi government around opportunities in the country. Chambers has also been vocal about Cisco's keen interest in exploring the smart cities opportunity in India. FM Arun Jaitely announced Rs. 7060 crore for development of smart cities in his maiden budget speech in July 2014.
