About the project Edit

The web-based initiative CoCubes.com, developed by venture funded firm based in Gurgaon (India), connects colleges and companies online for campus recruitment.
The word CoCubes derives its origin from the first two alphabets of the three words i.e. connecting, colleges & companies.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Companies can then interact with applied students through SMS and notifications sending tips, reminders and other details. CoCubes creates higher level of engagement between the job-seeking eligible students and the employing companies, increases reach and convenience for the students and also helps companies to reduce cost of recruitment, thus creating win-win situation for all stakeholders.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

With the help of CoCubes.com., companies can create a job post and make it available to all or select colleges, based on a region, or set eligibility criteria like marks, branch, certifications etc. The job post, when viewed by the Training and Placement Officer (TPO) of any particular college, can either be passed on to the students (by accepting it) or denied (by rejecting it). If accepted, eligible students get to see and respond to the job post.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Winner 2011, E Business & Enterprise category, Manthan Award 201 Digital Inclusion for Development , South Asia
The Jury noted that this initiative would specifically help colleges in Tier II Cities by getting online and being more visible to companies, thus increasing opportunities for the concerned students. For the premier colleges, the portal would save thousands of hours of TPO and student time, by streamlining internal communication and by providing them with mailing, calendar and SMS utilities. The Jury also noted that spread of the initiative has been significant with 2000+ colleges, 600,000+ students and 300+ companies including 4 of the Top 10 IT Companies have already started utilising the same. It was noted that the user companies have seen over 4 million page views for their engagement profiles on CoCubes.com and over 10,000 students have so far been made offers through this platform.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

It is the initiative of two founders: Harpreet who envisioned building a framework to help students connect all the dots to build a successful career and Vibhore who worked at Microsoft Research Centre where he gathered a lot of insight into the vast business opportunities.

    DEF - Digital Knowledge Center


    Digital Knowledge Center (DKC) is an initiative of Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) & National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) to function as an ‘Online repository’ of best digital contents for development in India and South Asia.

    With the incoming of new technology in ICT and digital content technology along with various technology delivery platforms, a lot many interventions in digital content have been taking place in South Asia. Interventions are visible in all major areas – Education, Learning, Health, Governance, Entertainment, Localization, Commerce, Culture, Environment, Tourism, Infrastructure and so on. Creation of digital content, its deployment, service delivery and usage has increased each day.

    While these developments are taking place, it is equally critical to have these interventions and practices shared, exchanged, and deployable from one place to another. For this to happen, one needs to have a resource bank available for learning, sharing and replication. Digital Knowledge Centre works as such a platform in audio-visual documentation format, which provides solutions to many of our social, economic, cultural and governance challenges.
