Pepul is a new-age social network with a huge focus on security and safety.

Basic Information

Chennai-based Pepul enables communities in real life, going from “online to offline”. The focus is on creating communities with nearby people, creating greater impact in the real world as compared to the thousands online communities that stay just online. In February 2021, the team launched Pepul in closed private beta with a few users, and did the A/B product testing. Close to two lakh users were signed up to join this private beta. Other social media depend on user data; the Pepul revenue model is based on connections. The startup - currently in its pre-revenue stage - has raised a small round of funding. See more
