Buyfie, a Kerala-based hyperlocal e-commerce startup, has been selected for the prestigious ‘in2Korea’ acceleration programme.
Conducted by South Korea’s Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) and National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA), the programme offers startups the opportunity to fast-track their growth in one of the world’s major IT hubs.
One of only 30 tech startups invited to participate from around the world, Buyfie – founded by brothers, Praveen S.S., Pranav S.S. and Prabin S.S., from Balaramapuram in the city – was chosen on the basis of its Minimum Viable Product (MVP), i.e. a product developed with sufficient features to satisfy initial users. The invitees for the programme cover a range of industries such as fintech, green tech, AI and e-commerce.
