Activity Marketplace Tushky.com Raises Rs 35 Lakh

Mumbai-based Tushky Events & Entertainment Pvt. Ltd which runs Tushky, an online activity marketplace, has raised Rs 35 lakh as an angel investment from undisclosed investors, reports Techcircle. According to the report, the company will use the funding raised to build a model–view–presenter (MVP) and do a proof of concept (POC). Apart from that, it will also use the funding to  develop its backend operations.

The site, launched in April this year, is essentially a marketplace where businesses/individuals can offer their services to provide fun activities in or around a city. Tushky essentially offers two services — discovering activities and listing activities. Businesses or individual can list their service for free, however, Tushky charges a fee from them, once an order is placed.

We registered on the site the old fashioned way, by entering our email id as Facebook connect on the portal did not work. Much to our surprise, after registering on the site, it sent us a password in our email. Registered users can earn loyalty points by recommending activities to their friends and family on social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook. Users can then get discounts on activities using those loyalty points.

At the time of writing this article we found interesting activities like sky diving, learning Pottery, rafting, and candle making on the portal. Apart from activities, the website also offers getaways and party add-ons. Currently, Tushky has clients including HSBC, Schlumberger, among others.

Other Marketplaces

While Tushky offers a marketplace for travelers and hobbyists and provides activities, deals sites like Crazeal also offer activities and hobby courses at discounted prices.
