Product/Service Summary


Mascot is an intra-college bulletin board designed for students, with the ability to find friends to connect, share and communicate within interest-based groups.

With Mascot, you sign up using your college and you are taken to a beautiful bulletin layout of what we call - BOARDS.
Mascot is designed around 6 Boards, conversations happen around these 6 Boards -
BUZZ: A board to broadcast campus happenings. Example: directions to a new lab, announcements on an event, etc.
NOTES: Students can upload Notes (PDF's, powerpoints, screenshot) and share with classmates.
EVENTS: Inter-collegiate events like Saarang, Shaastra are shared here. Post photos, share winners, participation rules etc. Market your events to students outside the campus.
RIDE-SHARE: Find ride-shares on this board.
MARKETPLACE: Got a bike to sell or that thermodynamics book? Post it here, and bag some pocket money!
GET YOUR OWN BOARD: We believe in freedom of thoughts and expression, so why restrict you! If you are interested in connecting with fellow gamers around the campus, engaging in thoughtful political discussion or finding a bass guitarist for your rock band... Create your own board, add your college-mates and you are golden.

How are we different?

An interactive College Billboard for sharing notes is - Non-existent & Manual.
Difficulty connecting with people around specific interests around campus
On-boarding system for new students is broken
Existing apps -
Do not assist with discovery
Too personal - requiring phone numbers to connect
Too generic - multiple groups on Facebook with no common thread or lack a sense of focus
No official network of choice inside a campus


WE AT MASCOT COVER ALL THESE ISSUES AT ONE POINT .
