Pitch for Thrillophilia.com

STARTUP NAME

APP/PRODUCT NAME

THRILLOPHILIA

WHAT DOES THE COMPANY DO?

Thrillophilia is India's biggest marketplace for activities, adventure and things to do. Recently Thrillophilia has launched an exciting new platform offering activities, experiences and things to do at 200+ destinations (cities and attractions) in India. Putting technology at the front, Thrillophilia intends to bridge the gap between travellers and local service providers in this rapidly growing but highly unorganized sector.

WHAT BIG PROBLEM DOES IT SOLVE?

With the launch of this platform, we are empowering travellers with the freedom to choose the kind of experience they want at a particular destination. The trend has been changing to backpacking and self go tours. The user is not restricted to book long tours and planned itineraries but can book short experiences like one hour elephant ride, night camping in forests, royal dinner at palace or a micro light flight tour. In India there are no portals for travellers, dedicated to booking activities and local experiences which dampens the enthusiasm of a traveller and increases their dependency on local sources when they reach the destination. We are confident our platform will help travellers make the most of their holidays.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THE COMPANY?

The company has a highly acclaimed outdoor team who travel across India and curate these experiences and activities. The company is also roping in local guides fluent in German, Spanish and French in order to enhance the customer experience level for foreigners during local tours.

WHAT IS THE ACTUAL ADDRESSABLE MARKET?

Adventure tourism industry in India has registered an increase of about 500 per cent growth over the last decade. The addressable portion in the activity space stands at $20 billion globally. This makes the activity segment the third largest segment in the travel industry, after hotel and air travel. According to studies, the global average price of an activity purchase is less than $100 and in India it is even lesser and stands at $28 but the volumes have growing at much faster pace.

WHY DO USERS CARE ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT OR SERVICE?

  • Unique inventory.
  • Platform approach towards experiences and things to do.
  • Hand picked vendors and suppliers

WHAT EARLY TRACTION HAS THE COMPANY GOTTEN?
