The year 2014 marked one of the greatest technological achievements for the country when the premier space agency Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully landed a spacecraft on planet Mars.
Hailed and applauded for doing it at a fraction of a cost and in its first attempt, ISRO's Mars Orbiter has produced a huge fillip to technology in the country. What has remained largely under the radar is that a significant part of the technology has in fact come from our small and medium technology companies from across the country.
As the year draws to a close and we set our sights on 2015, we feature 15 startups that hold great promise. From a startup wanting to land on the moon to a startup providing fully compostable sanitary pads, India's new breed of entrepreneurs aim to reach for the stars and at the same time stay grounded by solving various problems in our society.
