A ‘first of its kind’ discovery platform, Wonderush allows its monthly subscribers to experience a variety of the ‘weird and wonderful’ with activities ranging from soap making to aerial yoga, pottery to salsa and cocktail making to hot tub dining.

Connecting hard-to-sell last minute spaces for classes with consumers actively seeking different things to do in their city, the Wonderush Unlimited subscription lets customers book unlimited classes and experiences for £29 a month.

Founded by award-winning filmmaker and serial entrepreneur Nelson Sivalingam, the lightbulb moment came for Sivalingam when he attempted to create a better work life balance for himself – only to find that opportunity beckoned.

Revenue generating from day one, the subscription service already boasts nearly 10,000 users and works with over 3,000 classes and experiences across London. Started by Sivalingam in a coffee shop using just his phone, Wonderush has gone on to receive £500,000 from investment fund and incubation studio Fuel Ventures – and is now growing its userbase by an impressive 30% month-on-month.

The next 12 months will prove to be exciting times for the business as it looks to secure increased funding while expanding into different cities. Having recently launched its iOS app, Sivalingam and his seven-strong team plan to bring Wonderush to Android users later this year.
