FREAKOUTZ IS A SEARCH ENGINE APP FOR ALL THE HAPPENING PARTIES
In a city like Hyderabad, which has a huge youth demographic, there is a lot happening all the time. Be it standup comedy, karaoke, DJ nights or musical shows, the city is always ready to entertain youngsters with a variety of events which are staged at many venues. These days, the city is observing a growth in the number of cafes, restaurants and clubs. Where there were no places to party, today, we have lots of hangout places sprouting out of nowhere leaving us in a dilemma as to where to go. Most times, when we go try out a new place, it leaves us disappointed. Even places which have good online ratings and a good ambience fail to interest us. And our party time going down the drain is never acceptable, ever.
THE FREAKERS OF FREAKOUTZ
A series of really big disappointments from quite a few venues on the day of his farewell, led to the idea of FreakoutZ by one of its founders, Abhirup Dikshit (IIIT-H research scholar) who manages the startup. The other founders are Rajat Singh (IIIT-H undergraduate) and Nurendra Choudhary (IIIT-H research scholar) who are the technological team along with Rushi Agnihotri (MBA, IBS) handling the sales and promotions.
With all the right reasons to party every night, these youngsters visited venues all month long searching and collaborating with trending places. They started with the Playboy club as the first venue on the app. Venues were hard to get. Showing positive results and the advantages of online booking and payment, FreakoutZ convinced them. FreakoutZ has 3500 downloads and 2300 active users in a short span of 5 months with a simple revenue model which charges commissions from the venues.
