There is a time in every person’s life when one aspires to become one’s own boss. Getting a job in a multinational company and the complementary things that are associated with it like friends, partying, promotions, travels, on-sites, etc. are representative of the lifestyle change that many youth have made a part and parcel of their life. Thanks to the IT boom, Bengaluru has become the city of dreams for every aspiring IT professional. It is also a city with a large number of Malayalee youngsters. But do all of them aspire to work in an MNC? The trend is changing. Many IT professionals have realised the monotony associated with MNC jobs and some have even gone a step further and quit their jobs to take up other things.
This was the situation with Ganesh and Brinda, a Malayalee couple settled in Bengaluru. They quit their jobs and began a bike rental start-up – Funveyance, which aims to provide fun-to-ride vehicles at competitive prices.
Explaining more about the venture, Ganesh says,”We are starting with two-wheelers only for the time being. The current fleet consists of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Vespa scooters. Funveyance was coined as a play on the word conveyance. We define it as ‘transporting with fun’. Our tagline ‘Fun Rides With Us’ is intended to convey that while we provide fun rides, fun itself rides along with us and our customers.”
