About the company:

Homegrown is an Indian digital youth culture and lifestyle platform for the creative class powered by a digital publication, creative agency, content studio, experiential and a creative network I homegrown.co.in I agency.homegrown.co.in I @homegrownin @homegrownstreet @homegrownvoices

Homegrown is an Indian digital youth culture and lifestyle platform for the creative class. It was started from a passion to 'change the narrative. There was an emergence of independent creators in every realm; people who were defying cultural stereotypes and bringing forth new perspectives. It is a celebration of emerging creative voices and the cultural zeitgeist of contemporary India: being uniquely Homegrown.

At Homegrown, we look for artists who work with taboo topics that are socio cultural in nature. Those who are underrepresented, underfunded, unknown. We look for entrepreneurs with side-hustles, with success stories, stories of failure with spunk. We look for identity-driven narratives that paint a picture of the socio-political struggles of our youth in this country. We look for street-culture and the people shaping it: the fashion designers, the b-boy and hip hop dance groups, the skateboard and rap crews. We look for reminders of the past, of history, of nostalgia. We look for intimacy, for authenticity, for voice. We look for the creators who are driving the creative economies around the country. We look for narratives untold. We are the undercurrents of Indian youth culture; we are what's next, and we are what should be next.

Through our digital media publication we build the identity for emerging voices for all facets of contemporary youth culture; through our agency/content studio we connect brands with today's youth in ways that drive culture forward. Through our experiences we create cultural impact on the ground. We are a platform for every facet of contemporary youth culture and influencers across lifestyle, music, fashion, art, design, culture, food, entrepreneurship, social impact and more

Creative agency, content studio and experiential arm: we have partnered with over 180 leading brands like Nike, adidas, Puma, Bacardi, Converse, Gshock, HP, Fila, HDFC Life, Unicef, ABinBev - Budweiser, Hoegaarden, Corona, Diageo, AirBnB, Levis, CRED, The Taj Group, Audi, Royal Enfield, and several other brands on content, brand campaigns, influencer and event marketing, in the last 6 years.
