We are building an evolving ecosystem that is a one-stop destination for venues as well as artists to find everything that they need for their businesses and careers, respectively.

We are in the final stages of testing our algorithms. We are also actively discussing smart contracts with venues and we should be able to roll them out in full earnest in the next couple of months. We are also ready to roll out an innovative ticketing platform, which is a lot more affordable for smaller venues and DIY communities. - Anmol Kukreja, Co-founder and CEO
I met Anmol while he was building this directory and I was immediately interested in the idea. We sat down together and figured we could build a more comprehensive ecosystem for the entire arts industry, which is a one-stop shop for artists and businesses, alike. We have a long-term plan and we are going to roll out features as we move along. We started with the music industry since music has the widest reach among art forms; and also, because we have first-hand experience working in the music industry and understand the pain points - Nitish BhardwajNitish is an audio engineer who has worked with acclaimed venues such as Blue Frog, Bangalore. He has also worked with a lot of independent Indian artists as a mixing and mastering engineer.
Right now, we have a team of 20-25 people and we are planning on monthly events through our various IPs. We have started off with LiveBox. The first event had Donn Bhat, Fopchu, and Kum Chirui performing at Auro. We are finalizing a huge artist for our next LiveBox event, which we cannot reveal right now. But things are getting very interesting - Anmol Kukreja
Our platform is dedicated to arts alone. We have started off with music, and going forward, we will be adding visual arts and performing arts, including acts such as stand-up comedians. Artists can monetize their IPs and there are no subscription barriers or minimum numbers - Nitish BhardwajGoing by the first-hand experience of its founders in the arts industry and technology-backed solutions, Skillbox looks like a platform that could shake things up.
The biggest challenge is going to be getting venues onboard. They are used to working a certain way and selling them a more structurized way of doing business is going to be a task. But we are ready for it - Anmol Kukreja
