SMS GupShup made it to the top 20 start ups in the world on Business Insider.com a U.S. business/technology news website. The other Indian start ups that feature on the top 20 list include Flipcart, Redbus.in, Just Dial and InMobi.
Businessindsider.com rated SMS GupShup - an Indian group texting service that permits its subscribers to make, join and navigate pre- existing groups through a simple SMS among the top 20 global start ups to watch out for.
Beerud Sheth, CEO, SMS GupShup said, “I believe that the real "social graph" is your phone, and this service works with every phone. A “Social Graph" as the map of a person’s connections with all your friends, and is supposedly what makes Facebook so valuable. But our phone book gives a much better idea of who our real friends are, because of who we call and text, unlike long-lost buddies from high school which are just as much our "friends" on Facebook as our spouses. And because SMS GupShup works on SMS, it can reach everyone. Group messaging on smart phones works great when all of your friends have a smart phone, but that's not the case for the vast majority of people around the world. Which is why this model is set to take on the social networking space.”
