Summary
Startup Pivot Personality Development Passion Spirituality Life Coaching
Ankit Chhajed is an entrepreneur by choice. His quest for inner discovery & passion for learning is something which brings him close to what he does. Prior to founding AwakeY Inc., Ankit has been involved in various entrepreneurial endeavors.

After passing out from IIT Delhi in 2011, he took on the endeavour to make cities wireless internet enabled, by using existing infrastructure, in a unique methodology, celebrated famously as FreeFi. His passion for solving real problems has always kept him coming out with innovating solutions. While working with the renowned brand Jainson Locks, Ankit came out with an idea to integrate bluetooth technology in the lock and make keyless entries possible. The aim was to not let anyone get stuck outside their home, due to loss or misplaced keys. With that intention, AwakeY was born, in 2014.

Prior to AwakeY, Ankit also co-founded intruo.com, an interior design marketplace, which later got acquired. When Vishwas Goel, the director @ Walmart Labs, approached Ankit, he happily took the endeavour ahead to make India’s housing scenario look more beautiful & sparkling. His love for aesthetics and the minimalistic yet attractive marketing communication, is a known thing among his close aids.

In Ankit’s words, ‘the love of doing things is what makes you pursue them at the first place. Don’t just look for opportunities, for persistence is something that makes things click, and persistence can only come out of pure love, and #nothingElse.
