Rohit Chennamaneni, Darwinbox Co-founder, who along with Jayant Paleti and Chaitanya Peddi started Darwinbox in 2015, said, “Hyderabad has always been an important location for us since our inception. We have scaled rapidly and globally in the last 7 years. Moving into our new Global HQ marks another important milestone in our growth journey. This move will help us actualize our ‘from Asia to the world’ vision and support our ambitious plans to double business by 2023.”
