Incubez: Pioneering the Next Frontier of OTT with Entrepreneurial Content

In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, where OTT platforms have become the cornerstone of entertainment consumption, Koushik Chitrapu and Nivya Paidipally emerges as a trailblazer with the launch of ‘Incubez.’ Departing from the conventional entertainment offerings, Incubez is the world’s first Over-The-Top (OTT) platform dedicated to nurturing the startup ecosystem. In an exclusive interview with CE, Koushik and Nivya sheds light on the platform’s unique features and the inspiration behind its inception.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, OTT platforms witnessed a surge in popularity, providing solace to movie enthusiasts confined to their homes. However, Koushik Chitrapu recognized a glaring void within the OTT landscape – the absence of resources tailored for aspiring entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts. This realization propelled Koushik, along with co-founder Nivya Paidipally, to conceptualize Incubez as a transformative platform catering specifically to the needs of the startup community.
