With CupShup’s support, the team distributed more than 3 lakhs cups in 10 cities including Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai earlier this year. The team plans to successfully tie-up with 1000+ corporates by the end of this quarter. The cups were distributed with some unique and innovative taglines, in major corporate & tech parks, motivating corporate employees to take up these programs to ‘rise up’ in their careers.
In addition to cup branding, other branding options like lift, pedal lock were explored to generate brand awareness. Career counselors from upGrad visited the corporates to interact with professionals and advise them on the need for upskilling.
Commenting on the campaign, Sidharth Singh, Co-Founder, CupShup, said, “Corporates now understand the importance of upskilling to grow in their respective careers. Our campaign with upGrad is very relevant as it is targeted at the corporates and focuses on the benefits of upgrading their skills and how can one select the right path to sustain themselves in the corporate world.”
Abhishek Arora, Chief Business Officer, upGrad, said, “Discussing career choices and growth prospects become more contextual in the workplace than in an informal environment. CupShup has helped us to reach our core TG in the right context, which has helped us to scale our business. While we have started with a 10-city campaign, we plan to scale the activity to more cities in the coming quarters.”
