Inked Stories | A Platform For Budding Artists
- ByStartupStory | February 23, 2021
“Follow your passion and whatever you want to achieve in life. Don’t pay head to any kind of negative comments, keep going with the faith in yourself and the initiative that you are willing and passionate to establish”- Nishtha Agarwal & Taran Malhotra, Co-founders of Inked Stories in an exclusive and engaging interview with Startup Story Media.
Nishtha Agarwal and Taran Malhotra, co-founders of Inked Stories, never believed in bookish knowledge and both of their inclination towards gaining practical knowledge has always set them apart from others of their age which ultimately motivated them to start something of their own. Though both of them didn’t know each other initially but with similar thought processes regarding creativity and a platform for the same, made them start a page of their own last year during lockdown.
“We didn’t have anything concrete in our mind. I am a writer who used to write even before Inked Stories started. So, I had an open mic on Instagram and after the performance I wasn’t satisfied and received many feedbacks to improve my performance. That was the time I was talking with Taran and told him that as a writer I am not that established and recognized even though I write”- Nishtha Agarwal
While having a discussion on these, an idea ignited in them where they thought it’s not only them but there are many artists like them who don’t get a platform to showcase their talent, and that initiated their joint venture, Inked Stories.
They further enlightened Startup Story Media about the idea behind naming their page as Inked Stories.
It is about sharing stories by the people who don’t get a platform”- Inked Stories
Inked Stories: A focus on collaborations and campaigns
“We are not revenue oriented, we focus on collaborations and campaigns” – Inked Stories
With a team of 20 to 25 writers where they hire new interns every month, Nishtha mentioned that their page primarily focuses on collaborations and campaigns. Regarding collaborations they told Startup Story Media that through collaboration they try to create awareness in the society. “We have had few collaborations with few NGOs and few collaborations with Robin Hood Army and Zomato Feeding India”- Inked Stories As a platform Inked Stories opens its doors for budding artists and promotes their talents to the audience. Along with this through their campaigns they promote positivity. In one of their recent campaigns ‘Drops Of Joy’ they put 2 to 3 liners every morning to give their audience a positive view and motivation among all the negativities and pressure they go through everyday. In their another campaign named ‘A Millennial Story’ which is a podcast series running live on their Instagram page, where they choose artists from various genres and have a one to one conversation and let people know their journey and get inspiration.
