Aseem Ghavri & Ashneer Gover

Third Unicorn, a new company to be soon floated by former BharatPe co-founder and MD Ashneer Grover and his wife Madhuri Jain, will be in the B2C space and Aseem Ghavri who has joined the business with the Grovers.

Ghavri said a formal announcement regarding the launch of the new company will be made in late February or early March 2023.

“While we’re not currently revealing the idea or space we’re going to be coming with, I can tell you it’s going to be a B2C startup,” he adds. “We’ve already hired seven employees but Third Unicorn will have absolutely no designations or titles of jobs– it will be a flat hierarchy," he added.

The company plans to hire new staff but not more than 50 employees in total and as an incentive for them to stick around for longer, Grover said in a LinkedIn post, all the employees who complete five years at the company would be gifted a Mercedes car.

On funding, Ghavri said, “At this point in time angel investors can come to the capable but before that there will be a vetting process. We’re not looking for venture capitalists at this point in time, only angel investors rest, we’ll see how things turn out in the future”.

Aseem Ghavri founded Code Brew Labs in 2013, an enterprise application development company that provided tech to BharatPe as well.

A message sent to Grover seeking information on the new venture did not elicit a reply, but after resharing Ghavri’s post on LinkedIn, Grover said he was “excited to work with Aseem at The Third Unicorn as a co-founder”.
