Truppr App Nigeria

 

The Co-creation Hub’s (CcHub) CEO and Co-founder, Bosun Tijani recently launched a sports and fitness app called Truppr, an app which aims to simplify and make fitness an attractive lifestyle.

Truppr is a social tool that connects people, irrespective of their current lifestyle and shape, with physical activities and teammates in cities across the world. Truppr provides a platform for a vibrant community of physical activity enthusiasts to make fitness a lifestyle through:

1. A simplified process of organising amateur sporting events and teammates.

2. One-stop shop for finding and booking sport venues in cities around the world.

3. Easy way to find teammates and fitness partners even while on business trips, holiday or in a new city.

As an avid sports lover Bosun created Truppr out of his own personal fitness challenges. “I play football for fun and fitness twice a week and consistently struggled to keep the routine due to difficulty in finding teammates and venues while on business trips or in new cities”. Like ‘Bosun, millions of people globally rely on team sports and physical activities as a source of regular exercise and these are the people Truppr hopes to serve as a niche social tool.

Truppr is available for use globally though the team is looking to drive mass adoption across Africa in its first year. “We see the African market as a space that could provide the right platform for us to grow sustainably considering the emerging interest in healthy living, a growing middle class, steady rise in income levels and diffusion of ICT. We want to be part of that growth by helping more people achieve their objective of making fitness a lifestyle” – ‘Bosun.

Truppr is incubated and funded by the Co-Creation Hub and has benefited from the Tony Elumelu Foundation early stage grant for technology ventures.

With over 7,500 users, 55 new users per day, 343 events and 78% active users participating in at least 3-5 events per month  (in its first 4 months), Truppr is ramping up activities to generate awareness and position itself as one of the globally relevant tech start-ups emerging from Africa.

The app is available for download on iTunes and Google Play stores.
