Thriwe was founded as GolfLan in 2012 by Dhruv Verma as India’s first Global and Complimentary golfing subscription, enticing over 2000 hard to please golfers in the first year of existence. The vision was to create a service that provides tangible and true value additions to golfers across 24 countries.
As we mastered overall value addition and creation, individual golfers started knocking at us wanting this service to be extended to their companies and so was born the corporate offering of golfing services as a consumer benefits program.
We understood the value of creating a technology platform to scale and add layers of complexity keeping it simple for the end users while managing mountains of data real time. With over 4000 golf courses subscribed to OTTO, venture capitalists saw the potential in GolfLan and soon pivoted beyond golf providing a personalized and customized Corporate and Customer Benefits Marketplace with our true value additions.
Thus was born Thriwe with a loyal user base of more than 100,000 HNIs, strategic partnerships with Luxury Lifestyle service providers and a client base with the who’s who of BFSI among other sectors signing us on.
GolfLan started off bootstrapped and was profitable enough to sustain its operations but investors came knocking soon enough with GolfLan securing investment and also acquiring its first company in 2016 and winning accolades along the way including GEC Award and Champion of Sports 2018, being named the 50 Startups to Watch by CEO Magazine among others.
