Hi Visitor!! My name is Abhishek Bhutra.
Graduated in 2012, from IIT-BHU. Worked as Software Engineer for ~ a year after that. I planned into getting into IIM, cracked CAT but instead ended up starting the entrepreneur journey.
2013, started Zostel from a small property in Jodhpur with the ambition to change the way India travel. And today we are present at 35+ locations across India and Nepal. We are biggest Backpackers’ hostel chain in India and last I heard rank in top 10 across world. Here is the Zostel Website so that you can check out the awesome things we are doing.
In 2015, we started Zo Rooms a chain of Hotels. It was one hell of a journey. We were among the fastest growing startup that year. We went from 0 to 700 Hotels, 7000+ Rooms, 25+ Cities, 25Mn+ ARR in less than an year and half. We raised some $35Mn+ in the journey. And while there is only official Facebook page, there are enough news articles on google covering journey from start till end.
2017-2018 were the years of cryptocurrency and blockchain. We created one of the first cryptocurrency wallet for with lightning network capabilities. Moved out from Delhi and shifted to SF and then back to Bangalore.
2019, I will be working with startups working on India growth story while pursuing my interests in Blockchain in sides.
