Viral Chhajer

Viral Chhajer has a deep vision that straddles marketing and analytics, and is reshaping the real estate juggernaut.
Viral Chhajer might have a BBA in finance from Christ University, yet his expertise spans the whole startup spectrum. He started his career as a business analyst at Goldman Sachs before co-founding Bribe Me, a flash sale marketplace for brick and mortar stores. He then turned on his intuitive marketing brain at Runnr, a food ordering and delivery platform, as the head of marketing. His ability to strategise and understand marketing challenges has given him an edge that he continues to embellish at Bengaluru-based co-living design and technology real estate company StayAbode, which he co-founded. Under his leadership, StayAbode is providing urban millennials uber shared living centred around community and flexibility, and has also raised pre-Series A funding.
