An Indian enterprise
In 2005, TravelGuru was co-founded by Ashwin Damera and Jarad Fisher who were students at Harvard Business School that time. The online travel agency was at the moment just a mere business plan, which was submitted to a scholastic body and placed second in the HBS Business Plan Competition. The two business students originally set their eyes on making an online travel agency that would be India’s one-stop travel portal which includes air, hotel and car rentals.
Currently, co-founder Ashwin Damera serves as the company CEO. Before leading one of India’s top online travel agencies, he worked in CitiBank Madras and Mumbai performing diverse financial and operating roles.
Damera also worked in New York for JetBlue Airways. Having a large family as well as many friends living in India, he decided to return home and build-up an enterprise based on business plan they presented at school.
Ashwin Damera also has an MBA from Harvard Business School apart from holding accounting qualifications in India.
