The ChaiOne journey

Gaurav Khandelwal, Founder and CEO of ChaiOne, discovered his entrepreneurial spirit while observing his father's journey as a tea blender in India. Inspired by his father's experience building a company from the ground up, Gaurav embarked on a path in the tech industry, leading him to the United States to pursue higher education.

After graduating, Gaurav delved into the world of business transformation with a consulting firm, where he harnessed the power of transformative design solutions to assist his clients.

He created a side venture to provide design solutions part-time, focusing on website development for Windows phones. He was constantly on the lookout for an opportunity to turn his budding business into a full-time venture.

Then, in 2008, a game-changing moment occurred when Steve Jobs unveiled the Apple AppStore. Gaurav immediately recognized that the demand for services in which he excelled was about to soar. In response, Gaurav joined forces with his wife and brother, embarking on a journey to provide these much-needed services. Drawing on his early experiences as one of the pioneers in the Mobile App industry and his roots as the son of a tea blender, Gaurav laid the foundation for what would become ChaiOne.
