Woohoo…Yes, you read that right. We made it to the first-ever Forbes India 30 Under 30 List. [And in case you are wondering, that suited dude below with spiked hair, yes that’s our CEO, Pallav!]
For their latest issue, Forbes India went across the length and the breadth of the country to find the best and the brightest across varied disciplines―do-gooders, musicians, sportspersons, creative people, and entrepreneurs. Their mandate was to showcase an enterprising new generation that dreams big and has a never-say-die attitude. “The reason is in the purpose behind this search: Forbes India was looking for a spark, for a story that is still waiting to be told and, for the most part, only starting to unfold.”
We scored high on both “originality and utility”, of having “translated an original thought into a viable, disruptive business proposition.”
This reaffirms our faith in ourselves, in our work and in the product that we have built up together. Thank you Forbes India for this honor.
When Pallav started his journey as a 17 year old, it was just a teenager’s desire for more pocket money. Today, FusionCharts has 22,000 customers and 500,000 developers in 120 countries. Our story has all the ingredients of a blockbuster movie―drama, tragedy, comedy and a romantic angle thrown in too. [Read our start-up story (pdf).]
But as Pallav would like to put it, “This is just the trailer!”
For now, it’s however celebration time at FusionCharts…hic, hic hooray!

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.” ―Robert Frost
