“Every human being is born with an inherent desire to create,” says the Indian film director Shekhar Kapur.
With that in mind, Kapur, who directed Elizabeth: The Golden Age among other films, teamed up with Indian musician A. R. Rahman (best known in the West for his Academy Award-winning work on Slumdog Millionaire) to cofound Qyuki, a social network that fosters creativity.
Dubbed “a community of creative expression,” Qyuki launched late last year with an initial investment from Cisco Systems.
The site’s primary audience is Indians from 18-35 years of age (including the Indian diaspora in North America and the U.K.).
. . . .
“Qyuki is born to engage the Indian youth emotionally and offer them a platform to express themselves, exercise their imagination, build immersive creative communities, and through that have more productive lives.”
