Started recently in 2021, Hobit has crafted an irreplaceable niche for itself in the hearts of working professionals as well as the homemakers alike, as the platform provides them with an opportunity to pursue the hobbies they love from their own space and at their own convenient pace. It is an experiential virtual learning platform that connects passionate mentors and learners through virtual mentorship, engaging learning experiences, and community building in which users can challenge the friends and peers, as well as learn from them.

In addition to the learning experiences, learners can be a part of a community of like-minded learners at Hobit Social and share their journey with others.

As highly quoted by Stan Jacobs, "To be happy in life, one must develop at least four hobbies: one to bring you money, one to keep you healthy, one to bring you joy, and one to bring you peace." The ever-growing customer base of Hobit seems to be standing as a successful testimony of the same. Foraying ahead on the path of aggressive growth Hobit is currently outperforming a leading competitor as well.

Also, there are more opportunities now than ever before to even make a small, part-time business out of a hobby one loves. Recognising this, a lot of people are jumping the bandwagon of Hobit, making it the fastest-growing ed-tech platform in the domain!!
