Triegg- A One Stop Destination For College Students!5 years ago Ruchika Agarwal
The birth of Triegg rightly conveys the expression, “Experience is not what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you.” The story of Triegg began, when two school friends Aditya and Jay, wanting to create their niche in the education sector by reaching out to students. They aimed to address student concerns and other loose-ended yet far-reaching issues that students currently face. Some of these are the what they themselves faced, as students.
triegg.com is India’s first integrated online portal for college students,that is built on a triad of :
Opportunity: Realizing the procurement of college books to be one of the major pain points, led them to the idea of home-delivering textbooks. Since the service has not been practiced widely in the city, this would be a far-ranging tool to save time and trouble of haggling with vendors in the book markets.
Serviceability: Next,finding the process of hiring of an intern (who could help them work on their budding idea), a herculean task as opposed to what they’d imagined, the mutual benefits of an internship was soon understood. The Triegg’s internship platform therefore connects various organisations with students who seek internships. This allows students to look at the the real-world and work culture much closely. While companies get the chance to test-run a potential full time employee.
Pride: Triegg’s merchandise vertical came into existence with one thought that drove them- instilling a sense of college pride. Most colleges in India do not have an e-store that sells their college merchandise. Enabling the purchase and procurement of the same from Triegg’s online store would gradually create a culture of belongingness and a pride of association with their respective educational institutes.
Both, Aditya and Jay, have the bigger picture in mind and are in the midst of scaling up services. As they brand Triegg to be the one-stop destination for college students, they also aim to expand their scope and offer technical and soft skills training, resume writing and the likes.
At the moment, they are working on their expansion of operations in Bangalore.
