I was 19 when I started Webchutney, India’s leading digital agency as its co-founder and CEO.
Ranked as India’s #1 digital agency for eight years by the Economic Times & Brand Equity, Webchutney works with some of the leading brands and companies in India including Flipkart, Google, Uber, Swiggy, WeWork, Ikea, Under Armour, Airtel, Tata Sons, Whirlpool amongst others.
In 2008, I incubated Network Play under Webchutney, which in less than three years became the largest brand ad-network, one that was later acquired by Bertelsmann AG.
In 2013, Webchutney was acquired by Dentsu Aegis Network, one of the largest agency networks globally.
Dentsu Webchutney was the most-awarded Indian agency at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in 2019.
I have been a proud member of the global digital advisory board at Unilever and served in the jury of some of the most celebrated advertising festivals in India and around the globe.
I am an active angel investor in India. Some of my investments include ScoopWhoop, LoanZen, Invideo, CoHo. Many more are in the graveyard. Direct to consumer is a space I am very excited about right now; most of my investing recently has been in that space. ’How I almost blew it” is my first book.
