Air Asia Deserves A Lot Of Love For Being Startup Friendly [Trippy]

The guys at Witworks pinged Air Asia and nudged them to buy some of their products. And within a few hours, Air Asia ended up ordering Trippy in huge numbers, as the founder Somnath shares with us.
Sounds like a normal day? Definitely No!
Indian corporates aren’t known to be so fast and friendly decision-makers – especially when the product isn’t out in the market yet.
Trippy is a device which attaches to any speaker with a standard aux cable and turns them into Wi-Fi enabled speakers. With Trippy, you can stream any music/audio from your phones or computers to your speakers. The team is currently raising money to execute the project.

Done deal !
Lesson learned : Unless you ask, the answer is always NO.

  1. not sure if they agreed to buy them or deliver them to Delhi? Why did they approach an airline for an end user consumer product?

  2. @grimmjow, they have pre-ordered these products; and not for the delivery. 🙂 AirAsia India’s Ancilliary division will be adding it to their catalog for in-flight sales. The tweet mentioning “getting some Trippes along” was just a fun way to ask for it.
