Founder - Pratibha Rathore

A Media and Communications professional having 20-years of work experience, she started her entrepreneurial journey as Founder of Hobbylu - a location based mobile platform that simplifies hobby discovery and enables class bookings.

Pratibha believes, “Hobbylu is a holistic solution - The product is designed as a package for the entire family - kids, mother, father, grandparents, anyone can take up a hobby anytime – learn or teach. As my vision evolved – I could clearly see a link between entrepreneurship and hobbies.”

We started product development last year. By December our product was ready for a roll out. We spent last few months getting trainers on board. We have validated the product ata few big events in Hyderabad. The response has been wonderful from trainers and users alike. Currently we are aggressively creating awareness among users through events, promotional activities, marketing and alliances. “
