BENGALURU: Remember the last time you had to organise a child’s birthday party or had to arrange for home tuitions, or even find a suitable place for a wedding ceremony? You must have dialled over ten numbers just to find that one perfect place.
Five individuals from Bengaluru, all under the age of 28, have come up with a start-up platform through which all your events can be organised without a hitch. All you have to do is send in a request.
The platform has 12 categories of services it provides with a total of 75, including the subcatergories. The categories are called as “lifecycle management,” because the services cater to all ages.
“Starting from the birthdays to education to employment to marriage, we have created the platform as a place to manage services in every step and stage of life. We call it lifecycle management,” says Naveen P, the founder of the start-up called NPN-12. It is called so because it is the acronym of Naveen’s name and caters to 12 main services.
Naveen P was an engineering professor in Acharya Institute of Technology. He personally faced difficulties in arranging events at home. Sumit Mittal, a co-founder and CEO of the start-up, shares how annoying it used to be to arrange parties or even trips. “To get the trips finalised and sorted and check the places to stay and visit used to be a headache for me,” says Sumit. The start-up that started operating in November has organised two trips so far, one in Mangaluru and another one in Kumaraparvata.
Trip is one of the 12 services. Other services include sports, employment, conference, home tuition, weddings, birthdays, parties, manpower management, home decor, advertising, designing and mobility and education consultancy.
How does it work
All you have to do is login to the website and click on the catergory of the requirement, specify your needs and send a request. Everything from then on will be taken care of by the five-people-team.
The company has tied up with six companies in and around the city. Some of the facilities are based on personal contacts as well. “The founder was a professor so he knows a lot of teachers and professors who can help in the education sector,” says Sumit.
“We do event management to reach out to more people,” says Naveen. The start-up recently hosted their first Mother’s Day event, a cyclothon on May 14, to pay tribute to disabled women who are unable to conceive. The fundraising event covered a distance of 25 km.
