Describe the problem you are solving
During the journey, the travellers' sources of information are all siloed and the traveller has to rely on multiple sources.
Internet connection at airports can be a challenge as most airports offer free wi-fi only for a short duration. Further, many airports are plagued by excessive load on the wi-fi system.
One of our features, which is patent pending, enables sending push notifications to a traveller's phone that is completely disconnected from any network!
How are your customers solving that problem today?
Today passengers refer to different sources themselves, either digitally or in person.
International passengers have to spend more to get cellular roaming
Target custormers - Define customers, who are they
How do you plan to acquire customers?
Multiple options: 1st one is to tie up with airports and then with airlines in a B2B model
Later, this can be expanded to online travel agents, travel management companies, and so on.
The platform can evolve as a shared market place for multiple stakeholders
What is your revenue model or expected revenue model?
In the B2B model, airports stand to make exponential revenue from personalized promotions (a.k.a. advertisements)
The online airport e-commerce model would not generate as much revenues as the margins usually tend to be slim for airports.
In terms of our revenue model with airports, we are pursuing a transaction based revenue system.
Airports can also stand to make additional revenues by partnering with airlines.

Who are your competitors and how are you different?
Our patent pending solution is different.
When used by airports, it shows the commitment to communicate valuable information to every passenger even if their phone is disconnected from any network
What progress have you made in the last six months?
During the lock-down periods following the Covid19 pandemic, traction has been very less.
However we managed to find our unique patent pending solution, which we perfected, tested and have brought it to a shape where it can be deployed at scale in any airport worldwide.
Post the patent application, with cautious optimism returning for the travel industry, our potential customers have begun taking a keen interest in our unique solution
