We are a consumer-centric brand and the partnership with IIT provides us with a unique experiential platform to connect with our consumers on a deeper level. We are a youth brand focused on the youth of India. We understand the importance of ‘breaking free’ from our routine not only to escape the monotony but also to experience new things in life.
This thinking is part of our identity as a brand. We have always been closely associated with our consumers, majority of whom are Gen-Z. We look forward to a fruitful venture with the prestigious educational institution, and we are sure that it will be immensely beneficial for all the participants and other stakeholders.
