SteppinOut to some unique experiences curated just for you

When Safdhar Adoor and Dawn Thomas, the founders of SteppinOut, were only 17 years old, they threw a party for their friends. The party was such an unexpected success, it caused a traffic jam on Brigade Road for hours. This was what sparked the idea to start an event management company with their friend, Sharath Rice. Today, that company has evolved into its current avatar which curates unique events in Bengaluru.
“Our USP is that we create events that haven’t been thought of or executed before,” explains Adoor adding, “We’ve co-produced the biggest concerts that have happened in the city.” Their most popular event is the SteppinOut Movie Nights, an open-air movie screening under the stars, with movies like The Lion King and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge being screened so far. Another successful event is the SteppinOut Food Festival which aims to bring great experiences under one roof for the urban food obsessive. They have also co-produced concerts like Hardwell, Avicii, Armin van Buuren and Deadmau5 among others.
They believe Bengaluru is a great place for a platform like this. Adoor feels there’s an energy and vibe in this city that is very encouraging. He says, “New ideas are welcome here and embraced. People are always looking to experiment with their experiences which is what gives unique startups an edge.”
The company has big plans for the future. They just entered Hyderabad with a movie night and share that the response was encouraging. Come October 23, they will also make their presence felt in Pune with a food festival, and have their eyes firmly set on Mumbai for their next event.
