As Kuku FM started as audio content platform, the founding team before starting spoke to a number of users and creators, on how they made content.

Constant Innovation

To standout from the audio OTT giants like Gaana, Youtube, etc. Kuku FM focused on non-entertainment content on finance, history, biography, parenting, etc. 

Offering Differentiated Content

the startup decided to cash in on the rising penetration of the internet and demand for smaller cities and towns by adding content in various regional languages.
