  • Back in 2009, when the entire global economy was crumbling and various businesses were shutting shops for good, in a quiet corner in Mumbai, Ravi Saxena was laying the foundations of his entrepreneurial venture, Wonderchef. A perceptive businessman and a risk taker by nature, Ravi believes that companies that are born during testing times thrive when the market picks-up. Therefore, undeterred by the testing business environment, he focused on turning the challenge into an opportunity and consequently founded a company that would go on to become India’s largest and most recognized manufacturer of cookware and kitchen appliances.
