What problem does your business solve?
Lack of hyper-Local happenings discovery : Users face challenges staying updated with what’s happening around them, be it activities, entertainment, communities etc.
Limited Social Networking : Individuals struggle to connect with like-minded people around.
Fragmented Information Channels : Local Events & Businesses often face difficulties in effectively reaching their TG due to the fragmented nature of information channels.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
I personally felt being social animal as human we are not socialising the way we should, we have so many like-minded people around and we are not connected to them, be it in a cafe, gym or even airport, we can make connections with like minded wherever we go be it a social or professional connection. and this is what inspired me to build this idea which is actually a pivot of original idea.
What is your magic sauce?
Location based spots : Users can explore virtual space about eat-out, activities, entertainment, communities wherever they go.
Social Networking : Users can connect with like-minded people in the spot (Checked-In users)
Hyper-Local Promotions : Local businesses can showcase their products/services to drive foot traffic & increase customer engagement with spotshots & check-ins
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
We want to set a cult, whenever we plan to step out use our app to check whats happening around, be it a hangout place, cafe, community or even a game zone. a curated list of best hangout places to make you feel social again. we want to expand in south east asia and go global in next 3-5 years.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
In terms of building the startup, then i feel having a right team who thinks like you and have a passion to be a disruptors in the space. then second biggest challenge was early funding which is very important to grow quickly, being bootstrapped this has slower down our progress,
