To identify, incubate and scale product ideas aimed at adding joy and knowledge to the world. Our mission tag line is “Joy Infinitum”
We have adopted a venture studio model to incubate and scale ideas that align with our mission statement. We believe the rich collective experience of our team gives us an “unfair advantage” to create a playbook to identify niche white spaces, test the initial hypothesis, iterate based on customer feedback and then scale the ones that achieve product-market fit to create a large impact for all our stakeholders

Our Product Roadmap
We are launching a number of products via our business verticals focused on our mission of spreading “JOY INFINITUM”
Our portfolio of blockchain-first games with a compelling reward system for its players and community. Each project would be launched independently but governed by the same token. Value accretion for players and early adopters would happen not only via the intrinsic game-based reward system but also through staking of the NFTs necessary to play the game
Launching interconnected theme toys focused on both play value and learning. Proudly “Made in India” with technology and IP collaborations with global toy-makers. Through an effective toy imports embargo, the Government of India has thrown the challenge to Indian entrepreneurs to realize a sustainable Make in India toy industry. Well, we love the challenge and the size of the opportunity!
PlayVerse Media & Technology
This vertical will incubate SaaS ideas focused on our mission statement of adding joy and knowledge to the world. One of the first products from this vertical is our own OTT platform called “Anime Play” where we are bringing Japanese Anime in regional languages to Indian consumers.
