The Fearless Explorer | Houm
“I was never governed by fear.”
From being a young small town boy in South India to building a multi million dollar company, Bijai Jayarajan is truly a fearless entrepreneur.
You may know Bijai as the founder of Loylty Rewardz, a multi-million dollar venture. Or you may know him as the founder of Houm - a digital product that is all set to fight digital monarchy & give users private ownership of the internet by creating digital homes.
But there are a few things that you may not know about him.
- Did you know that Bijai took a gap year after his Masters to travel the length & breadth of India to do some soul searching?
- Did you know that he flew to Muscat on a visit visa in search of a job, and he got one at an advertising agency?!
- Did you know that Bijai joined ISB as a part of their founding class?
Bijai founded Loyalty Rewardz in 2008. In his 10 year stint he raised venture capital investment to the tune of USD 26 Million & in 2017 Loyalty Rewardz was acquired for a whopping USD 100 Million!
By the time Bijai exited the company Loyalty Rewardz was managing loyalty programs for 73% of all debit cards issued in India & was processing over 200 Million transactions a month.
On a new adventure with Houm, an innovative digital product that will empower internet users to create a digital safe space - A digital home on the internet that will in a true sense ensure the privacy of our data, Bijai is once again on another fearless mission.
I learnt a ton about Bijai’s indomitable spirit in our conversation with him. My biggest takeaway from our chat with Bijai was that we must chase our passions fearlessly.
