Our Journey

The trio who met at Yahoo Hack U event, ended up working together on 14 projects, 14th being ShareChat. It all started when they were working on their 13th project named Opinio, a debating platform and were researching in order to get growth in that platform. They stumbled upon a post on Sachin Tendulkar on one his fan page. The post witnessed over 50K comments with people putting their phone numbers to be a part of the WhatsApp group.

This was the eye-opening moment for the trio to realise the huge appetite of users to consume local content and this led to the creation of ShareChat, India’s first vernacular platform which serves as a digital window to the next billion users.

A journey started by 3 IIT Kanpur pass outs whose guiding philosophy has been ‘Break things and rebuild’, since they started coding from their IIT dorms.

This intrigued them further to create 10 WhatsApp group with 100 members each and within minutes, the groups were flooding will all kinds of content including- jokes, pictures, videos etc and the biggest surprise was, most of them were in vernacular language.
