Anand Mahindra tweeted on Wednesday, finally after two years I found the startup company I was looking for! Hapramp is an indigenous company, formed by five young founders. This company is taking creativity, technology as well as data protection together. Look at their social networking platform gosocial.
He asked Jaspreet Bindra, a former Mahindra official, to work closely with him to find the next generation of Indian social network startups. Bindra said that Hapramp’s team is developing a Web 3.0 social network. It is built on emerging digital technology. It has a solid business model that rewards content creators and protects personal information. This is good for everyone because it is being developed here in India.
Apart from GoSocial, the social networking solution Hapramp also operates 1Ramp.io. It is a social media platform based on Steam blockchain and Asteria Protocol. Asteria Protocol will help platforms to treat public data privately and securely.
Shubendra Vikram, co-founder and CEO of Hapramp said, We are very honored and excited. Our plan is to expand our platform through this fund and want to empower the creators.
