Ola Fun-O-Meter at Sunburn 2015

Last month, Armin Van Buuren performed to a raving mad crowd of EDM lovers and music fans in Mumbai and Hyderabad. The tickets for the show were sold out weeks ago, but we had some good news for the last-minuters, the non-planners, those who just go-with-the flow!

As Sunburn’s travel partners, we surprised some of our customers with a free ride and a free VIP entry to this happening party. That too just 2 hours before the event, a true #ChaloNiklo moment!

We were also at the party making sure that the revelers were having enough fun! How did we do this, you’d ask? Meet our Fun Police!

Our Fun Police went about with their Fun-O-Meter checking how much fun people were having. Watch this video to see what followed:

Honoured to have Mr.Ratan Tata invest in Ola 

We are thrilled to share that Mr. Ratan Tata has recently invested in Ola, in his personal capacity. While I am personally very excited about this, as a company we can now learn from the rich experience of one of the finest business leaders of our times.

Mr. Tata’s inclination towards transportation as a segment with the way he steered Tata Motors under his leadership at the group level is well known. Also, the Tatas at a group level and Mr. Ratan Tata himself, have built businesses that have focused on immense social impact and value creation. With Ola’s vision to impact mobility and transportation in India by creating a valuable citizen utility and a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem, we look forward to seeking inspiration and learning from this association. It is an honour as well as a huge endorsement for us and reflects Ola’s commitment towards the future of mobility in India.

While we have grown to serve millions of customers in 100+ cities with over 200,000 driver entrepreneurs on our platform in a span of just 4 years since inception, we definitely have a long way to go in revolutionising how an India of over a billion people will move around in cities.
