It has been more than 6 years that we’ve been associated with our followers. We still remember the first day when we started off back in 2012 covering 15 colleges of Delhi University. More than half a decade has passed in building this and today we cover over 200 campuses PAN India. We have published 5000+ stories, partnered with 1000+ events, created a community of 3L+ people, served global clients across 4 continents and touched millions of readers. Not to forget, we were one of the startups to get enrolled in the first batch of WeWork Labs in India.

We’ve had an opportunity to work & train some of the best young talent. Every year hundreds of talented students graduate from our internship and career building programs in the field of digital journalism, digital marketing, creative writing and business management/ entrepreneurship. We are proud to have a network of over 500 alumni who are currently absorbed by global giants such as Google, McKinsey, Bain & Co, Big 4s, IPG, BCG, DE Shaw, The Hindu, Bennett & Coleman, HT Media or are excelling in the field of entrepreneurship. Many of our alumni are associated with institutions like Yale University, JNU, University of Delhi, IITs, IIMs, Oxford University, MIT (USA), LSE to name a few. Their contribution towards our growth and making this entire journey wonderful is tremendous. What makes this relation beautiful is the fact that we have continuously engaged with our alumni and have established a very strong bond.

This entire journey has exposed us to millions of students and we have established a strong understanding of today’s youth. With our recent acquisition, we now see our future in gradually opening up our arms across boundaries and building global network of youth influencers along with One Impression. Our goals beautifully sync as a subset of what One Impression wants to achieve and this synergy will help both of us grow at a great pace with One Impression being the parent brand.

While we are now a part of bigger plan and merged completely into One Impression, we will no longer produce content, rather help young influencers and brands join hands and create great value for the ecosystem.

We are proud to graduate as Founders!
