Pune and Geneva, 19th July 2018: SRKay unveiled the path-breaking MindMatch Algorithm, based on the research by its Talent Solutions venture SCIKEY which can predict startup success, at the recently held UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) meeting in Geneva.

Thrashing some famous studies that point out several reasons why startups fail, Mr. Alok Kumar, the Managing Partner of SRKay said, "78 percent of startups are successful due to human only factors while the failures are primarily because of ignoring these factors."

Mr. Kumar presented a research study in the area of entrepreneurship titled, 'Startup Success is about MindMatch and how it can be leveraged by entrepreneurs & governments, to ensure start-up success, foster a culture of innovation and growth. SRKay currently invests globally & aims at achieving 80% success rate for its investments, using SCIKEY's MindMatch which utilizes the power of AI with in-depth psychological analysis to predict entrepreneurial success at individual & team levels. The overwhelming insights based on years of research received stunning appreciation from leaders across nations.

The platform also enables enterprises to leverage this technology to create successful teams and ensure successful employee engagement at the workplace," said Mr. Kumar.

The meeting witnessed the presence of noted diplomat leaders and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
