Product/Service Summary

A "Community Leisure" solution that brings organised as well as peer-to-peer leisure under one platform. Brigge helps people do fun things in their free time with others having similar interests. Brigge aims to be a one-stop-shop social commerce platform for anything leisure (recreation, entertainment, hobby etc.) that takes a community-first approach to commerce.

How are we different?

Brigge primarily facilitates community driven peer-to-peer leisure, where users both offer and avail leisure activities. As it happens, they also find likeminded company to avail organised leisure offerings such as shows, movies, sports, adventure activities etc. Brigge also allows the community to form a social network that amplifies people's interest in doing things that others they "follow" are also doing.
