5 Questions With… is an initiative to feature local entrepreneurs and give you a glimpse into their daily lives – how they live, work, and play. This week, we speak to Baru Walia, Founder and CEO of the Footsy App.
Baru Walia created the Footsy App – a football super app – more than a year ago. The aim was to bring football into the technology age, with an easy-to-use mobile app.
Footsy enables people to organise a football game between friends, book a football pitch at various locations in Singapore, make e-payments, directly split costs between players and store game statistics. It also allows amateur teams to manage their teams, use a built-in chat function with players and keep track of their local league matches.
While COVID-19 has put a stop to football games in Singapore, Baru is using the time to ensure Footsy bounces back quickly. Living up to its super app billing, Footsy is also in the process of adding new features such as e-sports and e-commerce, and has started video channels dedicated to fans of individual football teams.
The Footsy App is definitely going places, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and India. We take the opportunity to speak to him about his daily life as an entrepreneur.
