Archit Gupta On Building ClearTax and Cracking YCombinator @UnPluggd

This UnPluggd we are excited to introduce Archit Gupta, the Founder & CEO of ClearTax.

In 2014, ClearTax became the first India focused startup to be funded by Y Combinator. For a startup solving for India, this was certainly a big deal!

But more than all this, Cleartax focused on solving a very simple problem with a lot of focus on product and very simplified UX leading them to where they are.

Million plus Indians have filed their taxes through Cleartax and Cleartax has raised $12mn (earlier raised funding from Peter Thiel Foundation, Sequoia Capital, etc.)

Workshop on Cracking YCombminator
Archit will be conducting a workshop on “Cracking YCombinator” on second day of the conference. Founders who are applying for YC – you should be attending this!

About Archit Gupta
Archit is an IIT Guwahati alumnus. In 2008, Archit dropped out of his Ph.D. course at University of Wisconsin to join Data Domain Inc, a startup which got acquired by EMC for $2.4 billion.

Archit then returned to India and started ClearTax along with his dad, who is a renowned CA. The motivation behind starting ClearTax was that there was a huge lack of information while tax filing. And there was a great scope of creating a great tech product for filing taxes.

ClearTax has over 1M satisfied users as of now and aims to touch 3M this year.

At UnPluggd, hear out from Archit Gupta on what it takes to build a *sexy* product and the lessons learned building Cleartax.
