Hammad Jilani, Founder and CEO, Dogether

Failures are the stepping stone to success. For Hammad Jilani, the Founder and CEO of Dogether, a platform that allows discovering people with similar interests nearby and planning activities together, failure has been an inevitable part of his success story. The young entrepreneur was keen to start something of his own since his college days. Hammad is an Electronics and Communication engineer from Indraprastha University, New Delhi. In conversation with Dominic Rebello, Hammad says he wanted to develop an interest-based socializing platform for people to meet, plan and do what they love to without worrying about having no companion.

What is the idea behind Dogether?
The thought process was to establish Dogether as a go-to destination to discover like-minded people.

This was done through portraying the utilities of the app and the fun phenomenon which is attached to the social media aspect of it. The value proposition is to signify the seamlessness of discovering/participating/creating activities and experiences, have them broadcasted to a nearby feed for other people to see.
What are your plans for the road ahead?
We are constantly working hard to make Dogether a more crisp and seamless experience. Some major features in our pipeline are:
a) Payment Gateway - For In-app bookings of activities and experiences.
b) Better User Verification - To filter the user base on our platform through a better verification process.
c) Community-Based Interest Groups - We tend to introduce interest groups of people who are like minded.

Your vision for Dogether?
Bring social back, by helping like-minded people discover fun activities, connect and ultimately do more together. In the past 7 months Dogether has established a user base of 500K and 800,000 downloads and more than 1,70,000 activities have been planned on the socializing platform.

Along with this Dogether had successfully collaborated with Decathlon, Petfed, Mutterfly, and many more leading to spectacular successful events.
Dogether has also won awards like FbStart, a Facebook's global program designed to help mobile app developers build and grow their business and has recently got selected at RISE technology conference. At RISE, Dogether will be exhibiting as an ALPHA start-up. The fresh off the base start-up will be able to avail valuable benefits such as an opportunity to access and attend investor office hour sessions, mentor hours, Start-up University, start-up workshops, start-up roundtables and much more.

What is the revenue model?
a)    In-app Bookings - Bookings of very exciting experiences created by customers themselves
b)    Sponsored posts - Expand the reach of your activity to your target audience (T.G.)
c)    Sponsored products & services - Target advertising according to user behaviour

Where do you see yourself five years down the road?
We see Dogether become a one-stop solution for planning activities of all sorts, organised or unorganised, formal or informal, big or small, impromptu or planned.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Your excessive work load could be telling on you now. Stress could make you overly sensitive to people and trying situations. Avoid further investments especially those that are speculative in nature. This is the time to catch on correspondence or enhancement of your skills. It is a difficult time in personal relationships. Learn to be a little thick skinned rather than being hypersensitive as you have been of late.
