Co-Founder, UrbanClap, India
Abhiraj Bhal is the Co-Founder and CEO of UrbanClap.com, the ultimate online destination in India to find the right services professional for every customer need. At UrbanClap, Abhiraj is responsible for operations and service provider on-boarding.
Prior to UrbanClap, Abhiraj worked as a consultant with The Boston Consulting Group where he advised leading companies across India, Germany and South East Asia. He holds a B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT-Kanpur and an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad.
Abhiraj and his two friends, Varun and Raghav came up with the idea of UrbanClap with the ambition of creating a large tech business to solve a primary customer need in India. All three realised how fragmented the local services industry in the country really was and the potential it holds, given the high demand.
While other adjacent industries were leapfrogging with tech-enabled innovation, this was one gaping hole waiting to be filled. In view of these facts, the three were soon building UrbanClap and devising its roadmap to growth.
With immense belief in the power of e-commerce, Abhiraj, along with the other two co-founders expects to scale UrbanClap tremendously.
When not busy at the UrbanClap, Abhiraj enjoys immersing himself in interesting experiences be it running marathon, sky-diving in Spain, Scuba-diving in Andamans or cooking his wife’s favourite dish..
