We are a 15 people team working out of Gurgaon.
Founders : Sahil Baghla, hustler (IITK Alum) and Ayush Varshney, coder (IITK Alum)
We graduated from IIT Kanpur in 2012 and started this company right out of college.
The big change that happened in last few years it that the web has moved from search to social. People in social savvy don’t read but actually just look at things.
Our mission at bluegape is to provide an easy and efficient way for people to communicate knowledge. So we are building a blogging platform that is for the people of social age.
How are we different?
Talking about the competition in this space : BuzzFeed (West), ScoopWhoop (India) are a social content companies. But what we are building is a platform that makes it easy for people to create and consume socially sharable content. BuzzFeed and ScoopWhoop are companies run by founders from Advertising / Editorial background.
