Mr. Chirag Taneja

Achiever's Success Story

A Mission To Democratise The Way We Shop Online

Chirag Taneja is the visionary behind one of the fastest growing tech companies in India. The brand-favourite e-Commerce enabler that has achieved 3500% revenue growth, has delivered GMV in excess of 1.0 billion, has over 80 Million shoppers in its network and has grown its team by 80% QoQ within 16 months of its inception in the pandemic of November 2020. In the next few years, Chirag wants to revolutionize the way we shop and make GoKwik a synonym for online shopping. 

When he was putting interventions in place for scaling a well-known brand in the eCommerce world, Chirag came across multiple pain points that brands like these faced. With the love of building products and brands 0-1 and solving hard hitting problems in the eCommerce space, Chirag founded GoKwik. 

GoKwik is an eCommerce enablement platform that is on a mission to democratise the way we shop online using deep tech, data and AI – ML algorithms. 

Chirag is a third-time entrepreneur with over 13 years of experience across diverse industries including consumer brands, D2C, e-commerce, technology, digital marketing, corporate finance, valuations, management consulting, and product management. With expansive knowledge across varied fields, the dynamic market, and analytics, he helped multiple brands to adopt an internet first approach in their businesses. 

After working in Yes Bank for 6 years, Chirag began his entrepreneurial venture back in 2015 when he established Ketchupp, a meta search engine for food that was present in 8 cities and had 3 mn users a month. This search engine solved the problem of “what to eat” using AI interventions. This business expanded to international markets and was then successfully sold to Cartoq. 

He then joined Bombay Shaving Company as the Chief Revenue Officer where he led the entire online business including scaling the brand in the D2C space and marketplaces. He Started GoKwik during the pandemic to help the growing Non-Amazon Non-Flipkart eCommerce market which suffers from shopping experience problems which are deep tech, and data science problems.

He was then joined by 2 co-founders Vivek Bajpai & Ankush Talwar and is now a 150+ member highly passionate remote team which is aiming to build world class enablement experience for the Indian eCommerce space. They are spread across 50+ cities and they  are of the view that Pincode shouldn’t be a restriction for people to work together for a relatable mission. 

Chirag incorporates a merchant first philosophy into GoKwik and is constantly working on ways to further democratize the shopping experience and change the face of the eCommerce industry. He has differentiated GoKwik by incorporating AI/ML-enabled custom algorithms tailor-made for each merchant helping them boost conversions along with 100% RTO protection. He wants to build an eCommerce sanctuary where brands and customers both can enjoy this growing market with enhanced experience and profitability. 

Chirag also believes in the philosophy of “Zero to One”. He believes that with innovative and transformative ideas backed by smart use of technology, they can achieve the unachievable, and applies that mindset to GoKwik as well.

I was pleased to be a part of an event where so many Achievers could be found under one roof. Thank you for presenting the prestigious Indian Achievers Award 2021-22 upon me, Indian Achievers Forum. In my professional career, this is a really proud occasion. I'd like to express my deep appreciation for the IAF award. I had an incredible time with the Indian Achievers Forum from the minute I was nominated until the final selection. I hope that the IAF will continue to do a good job of recognising and motivating people by awarding them for their contributions towards the development of the nation.
