It was the summer of 2011. That's when it all began. That's when the metaphorical light bulb went off. That's when the minds of the four founders were called upon to inquire their respective journeys in life.

But often, in the world's most crowded streets,
But often, in the din of strife,
There rises an unspeakable desire
After the knowledge of our buried life;

Matthew Arnold

The Apartment

Good old camaraderie has its place in our founding. And its breeding ground was Rajaraman's apartment, #C6 Cee-Dee-Yes.

Thiyagu had quit his job in January and was on a self-imposed sabbatical to figure out what he wanted to do for the rest of his life, was sharing the same apartment.

KPS had worked with Thiyagu and Rajaraman for years, and Krish had known Rajaraman from college days. Amid the after-work banter and cappuccinos, the apartment became a mecca of idea exchange for friends.

Serendipitous connections were made. Friends became sounding boards. Benevolent thrashing of countless ideas ensued.

An idea stuck and it's potential impact became increasingly clear.

After working on various global SaaS products for years, they understood that SaaS is here is to stay. And every SaaS & recurring revenue business was building an additional crucial component to manage billing and subscriptions.

Billing, Payments, security, error handling & invoicing make up for back stage work that requires time, attention and technical rigor, and is a real pain.

Saravanan (KPS), Rajaraman, and Krish also quit their jobs, and took the plunge along with Thiyagu.

They set out to build a service that business owners could trust, that could simplify the complexities and let them focus on growing their businesses.

On June 15 2011, Chargebee was founded.
