Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 2 (UNI) An app developed by a technology startup mentored by Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) has been selected from India for a special grant of USD 5,000 instituted by a San Francisco-based mobile marketing technology company.

The GoK Direct-Kerala App, developed by Qkopy Online Services, won the 'COVID-19 Resilience Grant' from App Samurai INC, and became the sole startup from the country to bag such a coveted prize, a release said here on Sunday.

The startup is among the 12 winners from across the globe. The selection committee was impressed by Qkopy’s community impact through its technology and services in all extraordinary circumstances like Nipah, Kerala floods and COVID-19.
