For building a technology platform to share and monetize knowledge within an enterprise/sme to aid decision making.
Linkstreet is a corporate knowledge management venture that enables the create–store–manage–deliver–monetize cycle for institutionalizing knowledge and connecting people with actionable information required to take decisions. The seeds of Linkstreet were sown from a goal to provide access to a good teacher for remote, rural students. It is now helping to make learning and knowledge sharing easy and cost effective and enabling life-long learning. The venture, which has clients such as ISB Hyderabad, IIM Bangalore, Portea Medical, Columbia Asia Hospitals and Thomson Reuters, has been funded by the Aditya Parekh-led Faering Capital.
The company, which has grown from 10 clients in 2013 to 35 clients in 2015, aims to become a leader in the corporate knowledge management space and transform corporate learning from the current annual/quarterly training to everyday, continuous, real-time model, with learning on the cloud.
Overtime, it aims to serve the consumer market as well. For instance, a student anywhere in India can learn from an expert doctor in the U.S. or do joint research with a professor abroad. An employee can take an IIM or BITS course in the evening or on weekends to help their career. A photography enthusiast can learn from India’s top photographer sitting at the comfort of their home. By enabling knowledge sharing, the company hopes to create better careers and transform people’s lives.
