Introducing the app, Ms. GayathriThyagarajan, CEO, Kynhood Technologies said, “Kyn is the ONLY platform that triangulates television, print, and social media for the hyperlocal community.Chennai, our first market, has been divided into 14 zones and each zone will have its own television, print and social media. Kyn is a platform not only for promoting talent - arts, sports, entertainment etc, but will alsohelp home entrepreneurs and small businesses in neighbourhoods grow their marketplace. Besides this,influencers even with smaller follower count, can make a bigger impact in the neighbourhoods, as there is a finite number of residents in each area. We also provide a great opportunity for established brands to promote and customise their offerings in each hyperlocal zone.Kyn will have both publisherand user-generated content, all carefully curated to provide users with high-quality entertainment and information about everything in their neighbourhood”.
