Localup

LocalUp combines the power of social networks with the reality of local community life to provide you a life-changing opportunity

The idea

It’s easier today to connect with your schoolmate living thousands of miles away then with the folks in the next block. Few of us can claim to know beyond a handful of neighbors. This is where Vikram came up with LocalUp that encourages people to build local connections and have a much more fulfulling lifestyle. Afterall, however good your old pals are, you need someone local to play tennis with or to be your running buddies. LocalUp!
