If the fact is actual sale is from offline retail, for online sale also.
Why offline retail oppose online Pharmacy? What other challenges online Pharmacy are facing in business?

Pharma industry is high margin industry and retailers are afraid that online competition will ruin their margins.

About eChai Ventures

eChai helps you discover and connect with the startup ecosystems across the world thru offline events and online social network. We've recently launched the eChai Discover for Ahmedabad - which is one of the best resource to discover the startup ecosystem ( Startups, Enablers, Incubators, Talent, Events, Govt Agencies and others) of Ahmedabad. Similarly we'll be adding other cities from across the world.

We've also build this new tool at eChai to curate the conversations happening on the internet. Also for example, this is one of the best resource on internet to know about what people were discussing on social media during events:

Since 6.5+ years, Conceptualing & organizing engaging entrepreneurial programs


Since 6.5+ years, we conceptualizes and organizes engaging entrepreneurial programs to help fellow entrepreneurs connect, share and collaborate.

We host pretty diverse kinds of programs - eChai Demo Days, eChai RoundTables ( Sector-theme specific theme based knowledge sharing programs, eChai Skills Challenges ( Tech Challenge, Marketing Challenge, Design Challenge, Business Case Challenge, App Challenge, UI/UX Challenge, Business Model Challenge n others, Design Your City/Village programs, eChai UX Mornings, eChai Sales Evenings and our flagship #CoRise programs across all over India. The most amazing part of the eChai programs is the kind of conversations that happen among presenters and participants.

Expanded eChai into 40 cities

Now we've expanded eChai into 40 cities - Ahmedabad, Surat, Rajkot, Vadodara, Mumbai, Pune, Indore, Bhopal, Udaipur, Jaipur, Delhi, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Colombo, Thimphu, Singapore, and many others where we host various eChai programs. In some cities we host an eChai program every week or in many other cities we host an eChai program once in a month.

In coming months we'll have eChai Chapters in 100 cities from all over India which would make eChai an amazing pan India platform connecting enterprising people both offline & online to collaboratively rise together.

Earlier we've also led a delegation of entrepreneurs to visit Singapore, Sri Lanka & Bhutan to explore the entrepreneurial eco-systems in respective countries and possible partnership opportunities for entrepreneurs from the community.

Worked with some of India’s most prestigious educational institutions, industry associations, accelerators & Govt.

Educational institutions: MICA, IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Indore, Christ University, Bangalore, Somaiya Vidyavihar, Mumbai, S P Jain Institute of Management & Research, Vivekanand Education Society, Entrepreneurship Development Institute, Ahmedabad ( EDI ), CEPT University, icreate, Nirma University, NID , IIT Kharagpur, IIT Jodhpur and many others

Industry associations & accelerators: Assocham, CII, GCCI, FICCI, DICCI, Startup Oasis, TLabs, IAMAI, Sankalp Forum, BHIve Workspace and many others

We are also partnering with many Universities/Associations/Institutions to host weekly eChai programs - it may happen that someday we'll have eChai programs happening simultaneously in 1k+ colleges/associations :-)
