Start-Ups which could probably be imported from other countries to India ?

Any ideas and suggestions on StartUps which are very famous in other countries and which could be adopted to countries like INDIA ?

Isn't "startup" the opposite of "very famous?"

IMHO a genuine start up ought to look at real opportunities on the ground, and not retrofit. There are many examples in India of people trying to use mobiles and organize distribution for farmers who can produce organic food stuff. Think new, think service do not think money! Equanimity just looks on and observes, while calmly settled in composed neutrality. It is manifested as the quieting of both resentment and approval. Gautham Buddha

This reminds me of a German incubator called rocket incubator, they basically clone popular start-ups such groupon, uber, etc... While thier is Some success to it, they will never be successful as the orginal company, it's hard to considered them competitor since they'd nothing unique about them
. The orginals will always be successful because they have the Vision and able to scale because they got the ideas, the clone start-ups which you are wanting to do won't go far since you won't know what direction to go since thiers no vision.

There is nothing new under the sun. I think it is a great idea to look internationally for inspiration, then think locally to create innovation.

I cannot tell you what would work in India, but trust you are better prepared to answer that part of your question than I. What I can do is try to think of well-known US startups that never appeared to expand significantly outside the US.

Zenefits.com

Strava.com

I'm not an expert on any of these companies or on what's successful in India outside of what I read here in the US (FlipKart, Saavn, WhatsApp, Hike, Snapdeal, Ola); they may have an Indian presence and my guess is almost all - if not all - have established Indian equivalents already. However, perhaps you can see something I cannot in why these companies became well-known in the US without exploding in India as well.

I do think this is a worthwhile exercise - I don't see it as the same as Rocket Internet, who try to take business models that will work anywhere (e.g.: travel, ecommerce, social networking, messaging, etc) and take them to new geographies first; that's just kind of lazy (though I think they've net done pretty well ctually - while lazy in terms of business model selection, you can learn a lot watching the effort they consistently put into operations).
