FbStart was launched by Facebook in 2014 to help early stage mobile startups build and grow their apps. It provides an exclusive community, worldwide events and mentorship from Facebook to the startups along with $80K in free tools and services. FbStart includes three tracks, viz., Pre-launch (up to $15K benefits), Bootstrap (up to $30K benefits) and Accelerate (upto $80K benefits).
FoodCloud’s Android app has been accepted into the Bootstrap track of FBStart Programme and has received $30K worth of rewards from Facebook.
FoodCloud was founded by serial entrepreneurs Vedant Kanoi and Shamit Khemka in September 2013. It is a service where users get home cooked food prepared by professionals and chefs specialising in Chinese, Lebanese, Thai, Italian, India, Austrian, Mexican, and many other cuisines.
The FoodCloud Android app has already recorded 1000-5000 installs. It has used FB Start’s rewards to significantly increase its reach amongst new customers, to better serve its existing customers and to improve the app by doing extensive testing.
