From the reel life friendship stories like Sholay’s Jai and Veeru and Friends’ Joey and Chandler to the real-life bond we share with our buddies, this beautiful relationship called friendship is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year across India, without a miss.

Let’s Celebrate Friendship With the New-age Startups That Changed Our Lives

However, in this ultra-advanced world, we have also made some new friends who come from diverse backgrounds – yes, the start-ups – that have been servicing us through their innovative offerings and gaining our trust.

This Friendship Day, let’s applaud these 3 start-ups that stood with us 24×7 and constantly met our requirements in the space of quality education and accommodation:

Adda247 (For helping students in test preparation) – India’s leading government exam preparation platform, Adda247 started its journey in 2016 with an intent to help students who couldn’t enrol at offline coaching centres to prepare for government exams. Adda247’s innovative approach to offer free online coaching for bank PO exams and SSC CGL exams through its YouTube channel came as a huge hit among the learners across India.

Since its inception, Adda247 has been like a companion to students giving them access to quality education content while bringing even the rural area students under their umbrella. It has significantly helped the unemployed youth of the country clear government exams and land up with a decent jobs in hand.

University Living (For student accommodation) – Another new-age start up that came into being in 2015 and since then has been offering quality student accommodation worldwide. University Living has intelligently removed the accommodation woes faced by students, especially when they go abroad for pursuing higher education. The brand provides value for money accommodation and ensures that international students are happily accommodated in their new environment away from home.

Zostel (Evangelising experiential travel and unlocking India for everyone to experience fearlessly) – started in 2013 with the mission to change the way people travel. Zostel introduced the concept of experiential travel by providing travelers hygienic, centrally located, and affordable accommodations and getting rid of unsafe and dirty lodges. Today, it has become India’s first and top-rated community-driven chain of branded hostels and BnBs located at 60 places across India & Nepal.

Travelers, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and adventurers all share the common Zostel spirit of following their hearts and thus create the Zosteler community, sharing their stories, creating lasting memories, lifelong relationships and continuing to inspire every soul to live life to the maximum.
