What is the problem you are trying to solve? Can you share with us any insights that led you to believe that this is a big enough problem?
There is immense pressure, stress and depression all around you see. Wherever we see, read , hear .. there is disappointments.. at the same time we have more youth, working people as youtube viewers. This switch from television to digital era. Now then, do you see any real story that is authentically screened? So people do not get to know the real side that how is success defined, is success only to become as Priyanka Chopra or oprah ? isn’t a street vendor who struggled to earn for their family in bad times and educating his family a great thing?…
I interact with women, working people and children day and night all they talk about is how to earn double money and be successful, parents come to me and only talk about which school their 5 year old child must go so that he gets a chance to study in IIT IIM ? this is highly illogical and insane.
The problem is of basic value education not part of our system.
We are going to impact families with positive stories of ordinary people who have been doing extraordinary contribution in our society.
What is the uniqueness about your Startup?
The stories will be the ones not part of any newspaper coverage or facebook post, it will be new and each story will have a lesson to learn in the form of a narrative.
What is the revenue model? What is the logic behind it? What is the model you are following – Free / Freemium / Premium etc. ? Explain your thought process.
Season 1 – will be free, we are looking for people to get involve and engage in the new reality of value based life style. To have value of the show and credibility we will begin with subscription. Revenue model :- brand positioning and youtube advertisement.
Who are the consumers that you are targeting? How is this going to affect them?
Our consumers are youth and working people. They will be affected with the episodes content and which will help them believe in self. it will promote value based life style where doing a bit inside contribution will be a new eco system. People will have quality of life where each downfall will make them strong to achieve and get what they want. It enough to work on literacy, literacy does not solve any problem, only education can, and education has nothing to do with books or school, education is how sensibly you deal with your situation in life and contribute in society.
About the Fundraiser, Fundraiser Link, Target Amount and Raised Till date?
Growthhub is a great platform so far, as the team is authentic, grounded, supportive. Target amount is Rs.5,00,000and till date we have raised Rs.41500
How GrowthHub strategies are helping them to raise funds through crowdfunding from the crowd ?
It is indeed helping however it is always so that campaigner needs to push and raise first to reach more people. Here is the link to our campaign.
What is the big picture of your startup? Will it lead to something bigger? If so, how?
Big picture is to be only platform that provides authentic, original creative content and impacting family for quality of life by promoting value-based education.
What is the success story of your startup in your own words?
I came with this idea, when I was counseling a parent, they mentioned that there are so many people who want to come and voice out their concerns with behavioural issues and cultural imbalance. There were so many issues that children started to get aggressive, could not control emotions etc. and schools are not working on value education as per our survey and study (delhi ncr). This made me believe that people resist to go for counselling or share real problems which they unnecessarily create by over hearing or reading exagerrated news and headlines. or by listening to people or gossips. This is hazardous to having healthy mindset and using life productively.
Hence, I thought to bring in a web show and reach out family with the original, real and inspiring life story and content to be able to show the other side of the world which is positive, empowering and strong.
We went to many people to support us to have this idea go live. They only asked me which celebrity I will have in my show or how much share will they get. However this is very natural to come. We spoke to people and realised this is something people would love to see but not back it as contribution. We were fortunate to have 2 people who helped us meet potential network who supported this campaign.
Now we are live on our channel.
Any other information about your startup that you would like to share with us.
This is authentic project which will eventually contribute in eco system. however the impact it has is intangible and long term. We need to now roll up our sleeves in order to save our planet from negativity and spread through value based education.
Thanks Shruti. Best of luck!
