Kattankulathur – SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRMIST) has been providing a base for several of its students in starting unicorns or becoming entrepreneurs. Our students, both present and past, have been contributing towards the betterment of our society in an efficient, tech-savvy, and user-friendly way.
We at SRMIST are now proud to announce that our alumni, Ragul Ramachandran Uthama Singh (2017 graduate) from Electronics and Instrumentation Department, SRMIST, has made and launched a start-up application called ‘Livathon’. This app has been receiving a lot of appreciation from many celebrities and reputed personnel.
This Chennai-based lad began working on his application after completing his Masters in Business Management from Brunel University, London. His app Livathon offers an interest/hobby-based networking of users in the location of their choice. It also offers a digital diary-like blogging platform that serves as a digital profile/background of the user. Like social media users can blog, share photographs, and message users within the platform.
“This application will be ideal for aspiring artists, sportsmen, charity organizations, especially for people who have a passion for a particular subject such as music, writing, sports, arts, technology, etc. Such people can find and interact with like-minded people in the same locality to network,” explains Ragul.
Users can blog, share photographs about their passion/interest, and network with like-minded people to form a dance crew, a sports team, a running/cycling club, or just share ideas based on their interest.
Ragul was inspired to create such an app during his master’s program. “I was told to come up with an idea for a start-up for my entrepreneurship management module. That is when I developed an idea for an app called a digital diary – a platform to record the thoughts of a user and share them with their family. This inspired me to develop Livathon diaries.”
The ideation, patent, user interface, market research, and marketing are entirely handled by Ragul while the technical side of the application is handled by an app development company called Trident Solutions, Chennai.
Ragul’s app has crossed over 2500 active users on the application so far within five months of its release on Play store and App store. His app can be downloaded at – https://t.co/Phs7ocsp57?amp=1
