Success Story


Meet Ayaan Chawla, the youngest CEO of India

Published Date : 15/03/2017

Ayaan got a computer for himself at the age of seven. Just like any other excited child, he started experimenting on whatever he could find. From playing video games on it to editing videos and movies, Ayaan has seen a rapid evolution of himself in terms of technology. Ayaan Chawla’s story may shock more than a few. Starting his entrepreneurial journey at the age of just 13, Ayaan could well have been the youngest CEO in India, and has had quite a satisfying career so far.


Ayaan Says - My parents bought me a computer when I was eight years old. Being a child who had a thirst to pick up skills, I soon began to create movies with editing tools such as Adobe Software. One fine day, I thought it would be great if I learned to create websites, softwares, and apps. When I was 13 years of age, the idea of starting a social utility for people to connect with each other took form in my mind. What followed was a year of homework. In 2011, I launched it.

He founded Asian Fox Developments in March 2011. This company provides IT, web and marketing products and services. He went on to start three more firms - Group for buddies, Global web mount and Mind-In advertising - over the next two years. His mother made an investment of Rs 10,000 initially, and he never had to approach any investors for funding.

Ayaan continues... Today, I get invited as a speaker at conferences, seminars, and webinars of many companies across India and the world. I also speak at universities. I spoke at Dronacharya College of Engineering, where I shared the dais with well-known entrepreneurs. This was at CareerFest 2013. I was also invited to speak at the Enterprise Connect 2014-2015 event in Orlando, Florida.

I am excited to reveal that, recently, Asian Fox Developments signed a deal with film director Ikram Akhtar and producer Rajesh R. Tripathi for their film 'India Mein Lahore' as an IT and online media partner!

By the time he turned 18, he had reached out to over one lakh customers from across the world. He has branches in the US, the UK, Hong Kong, and Turkey. Ayaan has been awarded with the 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' award twice already, and he received letters of appreciation from the Prime Minister's Office.

Ayaan's story is truly one in a million, and he is an inspirational figure to every young entrepreneur who is looking to make it big in this highly competitive world. - We wish him all the best.
