When TS Eliot remarked “The journey, not the arrival, matters,” little did he know that two young tech enthusiasts, Kartik Poddar and Kartik Bansal, would take his quote literally. A boring train journey from Hyderabad to Mumbai is what prompted the duo to start Fropcorn, an entertainment app for travelers. Started in September 2015 with an initial investment of Rs.15 lakh, Fropcorn caters to frequent travelers, who while away their time waiting at bus stops or airports in Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. “We are targeting people in the age group 25 to 45 years, who are entertainment hungry and bored during travel,” says Poddar who doubles up as CEO.
