My beloved Inclov family,

We are sure you have noticed a fair amount of silence from our end this year. This year has been a difficult time for us mentally and emotionally. Sometimes in the pursuit of doing our absolute best, we forget to maintain balance with things that matter. The last six years at Inclov have been nothing short of a dream. Enabling an entire community of 100 million in India to do something they have not experienced before has affected us in powerfully positive ways. Every single Inclover across India has given us so much strength and encouragement, it made us dream even bigger. And every single memory we have today will last us a lifetime of nostalgia.

With a heavy heart and loss of words, we would like to inform you that we will be shutting Inclov and all its services by 20th Jan 2020 due to the lack of funding and dire financial situation that we have been facing for a while now.

Looking back, we feel proud that Inclov has managed to:

  1. Become a global case study with an award of Top 50 Global Innovative Practices by Zero Project at The United Nations.
  2. Bring together a community of 60,000 people across India.
  3. Enable connections and conversations between 20,000 people.
  4. Host 100+ inclusive and accessible meetups across 40 cities in India including nightlife meetups.
  5. Create an inclusive eco-system by partnering with brands like Microsoft, ITC, Cox & Kings and many more.
  6. Bring many happy couples together.

Taking a moment to thank all our brand partners, investors, beloved community and their family members along with the countless well-wishers.

We hope you carry the mindset of the right to equality as well as freedom for all and keep the spirit of Inclov alive in your heart forever.

Inclov was home to many. We will miss you all.
