Work in progesss

In 2007; on my first day after work, I fatefully bumped into the only person I ‘knew’ who lived in NYC.

Ripun?”

“Yeah” he looked up confused, trying to place me

“Piyush. We met at Natcong” reminding him of the AIESEC conference

“Oh right”

< More small talk >

“Let’s get a drink soon” how most conversations end in the Big Apple

We did get that drink. And then some more.

“Are you sure you want to leave this office & go back to India?”

My dad exclaimed, when I took him around my 33rd Floor office in the centre of mid-town Manhattan.

“Don’t worry Dad, I want to move to the next challenge”

Founded by Ripun Jai Mehta & I (Piyush Suri) in 2009. Rahul Kumar was with us from the start.

PIYUSH SURI, CEO & Co-Founder

It was rare opportunity to be a co-founder with Ripun and I grabbed it with both hands. I was naive, under-prepared & too eager when we started. Like all first time founders, I have made many mistakes and paid my dues. 12 years of hustling and managing one sh*t-storm after another - I am just warming up.

RIPUN JAI MEHTA, Co-Founder

While Ripun doesn’t hold an active position in the company, his business acumen and personal values is what we built this company on. He is the alternate voice in my head, the yin to my yang and while he torments with numbers often; I coulnd’t have asked for a better partner.

In 12 years since, we have sold logo design, printed business cards, formatted PPT reports, worked with African artists to paint on ostritch eggs, sold sand for an influencer campaign, designed e-commerce stores and more.

It’s been chaotic, I won’t lie.

But we’re here, we have fueled our growth from nothing, we nurture each relationship, we are dependable and most importantly we creatively solve problems with design.
