Dreams and desires are the biggest motivators in any person’s life. We all have that element present in us; it’s just that, only few follow it to the hilt. As Cesar Pell rightly said,
“The desire to reach for the sky runs very deep in our Human Psyche”
Perhaps it’s this same motivation that brought 4 individuals from different backgrounds to come together and form a wolf pack. They have put a huge dent in the gifting and experience market in the country and carved their permanent space. The wolf pack has grown into a big tribe now with offices in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai and we have just completed 4 glorious years of this amazing journey.
How We Started
Back in 2012, Mr. Sumit Khandelwal (our co-founder) was caught with the entrepreneurial bug. Like many people of this generation, the desire to create a company and culture of his dreams was taking shape in the confines of his mind. He was noticing some interesting trends in the gifting market internationally and zeroed in on same. As he rightly mentioned in one of his interview, getting the right team was and will always be the biggest challenge. This is one secret ingredient that can make or break the entire infrastructure. Luckily for him and the future company, he met his match in Mr. Manoj Agarwal. He is computer science engineer and holds an MBA from IIM Kozhikode. Together these two minds gave shape to one of the most promising startup, Giftxoxo. Along the journey the core team grew and from two they became 4 co-founders. Abhishek Kumar from IIT-B and Kushal Agarwal joined the team as co-founders and has since been the strongest pillars of the team Giftxoxo.
What We Do
Giftxoxo started the journey to solve one major pain point and that is to offer the best of experience to its customers in majorly five categories, i.e. Gourmet, Adventure, Tours & Getaways, Health & Wellness and Art & Learning.
The company works with the best of the vendors in any location and continuously strives to enhance the customer experience.
The parent company Nreach Online Services Pvt. Ltd has two flagship brands Giftxoxo and Frogo.
Giftxoxo.com, our B2B brand, is India’s biggest gifting platform along with its unique reward & recognition portal XOXOEngage. We are working with some of the biggest and blue chip companies in the country including big names like L&T, Cognizant, and Infosys etc.
Frogo, a consumer facing brand, offers a mobile app as well as website to allow people to book amazing activities around the city on the go. It is a revolutionary product to change the entire dynamics of the self consumption experience industry. The entire team of Frogo is very enthusiastic to make it a huge success.
Life at Giftxoxo
Life at Giftxoxo is fun to begin with and the freedom to explore new possibilities since its inception. Perhaps, it is the culture of delegation and creating leaders from organization rank and file what differentiates the company from any other in the industry.
In terms of employee engagement activities, we often surprise employees by encouraging them to go for activities like Parasailing at Jakkur Aerodrome, Pottery Making, Cartoon Creation and many more fun experiences. The employees are also given vouchers for various fun activities on regular basis. In the occasion of Frogo, the management organized a trip to the water park. Events like these strengthen the bond in our Giftxoxo family even further.
Giftxoxo believes that openness within office space, bold thinking and visionary attitude will help us put many more candles on the cake in times to come.
I will end the post with the quote from Late Steve Jobs,
“We are here to put a dent in the universe”.
