Uber Dreams, an India-based platform for turning dreams into reality, has recently announced it has received its seed funding from Mascot Group worth half a Million Dollars.
Uber Dreams is owned by Dreamatic Innovations Pvt. Ltd. The company is funded by serial entrepreneur and Co-Founder, Mohit Lalvani of the Mascot Group along with Savan Daru who is also Co-Founder and the CEO.
AntFarm and Scootsy founder Rishi Khiani joins the team as an adviser having been part of the initial ideation.
The team plans to utilise the investments in expanding the list of offerings and ensuring awareness and conversions through Digital Marketing platforms.
In essence, Uber Dreams focuses on making dreams into reality, whether its users’ dream is about meeting their favourite celebrity or riding a luxury car.
This business model operates in a simple format, wherein various dreams are listed on the website, which can be redeemed for the experience at a nominal fixed cost.
Currently the website lists more than 75 different experiences. The listings and categorisation of dreams is designed in an extremely personalised and tailor-made format, for different demographics and age groups.
For dreams that are not listed, Uber Dreams has a dedicated section known as ‘You Dream, We Fulfil’. On this section, visitors and users can express their dreams to be fulfilled by the startup.
Going ahead, Uber Dreams plans to launch ‘Uber Dreams Auctions’ that will help take the brand to the next level. This will open up a whole new section that will allow dreams to be auctioned and the winning bidder will have a chance to fulfil that dream.
“We are excited to bring to life a range of personalised experiences through our disruptive business model which allows everyone to turn their dreams into reality,” said Savan.
Part of the revenue generated on both the experiences and auctions platform will go to charities like People for Animals, CRY, Virat Kohli Foundation, Reef Watch, Voice of Martyrs, NAB and others.
