HowdyDo was launched with a vision of changing the sports land scape in India. “Global Sports Market is worth $ 800 Billion. India’s sports market is currently worth $3-5 Billion and is expected to grow in leaps and bounds. India has won 24 Olympic Medals in 28 Olympic Games held since 1900. We want to change this by focusing on Neighbourhood Sports” said Mr. SK Choudhury, (Director of Howdy Ventures Pvt. Ltd).

Our aim is promote sports in the grassroots level. In HowdyDo, we have brought every aspect of sports and made it local to the neighbourhood. Find a local class or a coach, form a team, find sporting events in your neighbourhood, find partners for your gym, running or tennis in your neighbourhood or how about that event played in your locality. The cool part is we have integrated social networking and messenger to every aspect of our application. Our messenger is capable of having 1 lac people in a group with conference calling and conference video calling.Although everyone aspires to be a Tendulkar or Mary Kom, first you have win a local medal in your school or college, then your locality, city, your district then your state and nationals.” said Mr. Sudhakar Raja, CEO of Howdy Ventures.
