Woolor thinks that Indians are skeptical about their education system for not producing Google, Facebook, twitter like Internet companies. That said, Indians are also producing companies like Flipkart, Snapdeal, Naukri, MakeMyTrip etc. These Indian companies were the inspiration that lead to the birth of Woolor , a collection of Indian website companies.
Just like we have IMDB for movies, here’s Woolor, an online database of Indian website based companies that include lists of their founders, alexa ranking, founding year, career link, head-office, parent company and its start-up story for these companies with proper sources. It is like a hybrid version of CrunchBase and Wikipedia. Anyone can submit request to add/edit Indian website details with source only. Then they review that website detail and publish it. It takes some time to publish details, because they cross verify all details provided with source then publish it. Collection of information is crowd sourced & it follows the same structure as Wikipedia, everyone is allowed to see contents of this website freely, and anyone can request to add details of a potential Indian website that is impacting Indian market.
Woolor is developed and maintained by some tech enthusiasts with the support of people from tech community and visitors. Currently they have more than 400 Indian website details. While reviewing the website one thing that caught our attention was the Indian Internet Timeline from 1995 to 2012 at http://www.woolor.com/Indian+Web+Timeline/ which is available in 4 languages.
Another thing they currently support are the two types of searches; one, their own custom search and other, Google search (advance search). In their own search, one can search any popular Indian website even with wrong name “flipcart”, “snepdil”, “faduenginers” etc. However they are trying to improve their search to make it better.
When asked about how they came up with the name Woolor, Their Answer totally justifies the name they have chosen for their company. The team says that Woolor is originating from a misspelling of the word “Wular Lake”, India’s largest fresh water lake, located in Bandipore district in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. In same way Woolor is also collection of india’s fresh and innovative website based companies information.
It’s just a matter of time that Woolor becomes the next big database of all the India companies out there. Check Woolor out now and let us know if you were able to find your favorite Indian company there
