It is said that the best gift you can give to a person is Time. A Time that the receivers will remember for the rest of their lives. Gifting a beautiful memory is the most beautiful gift in the world and those who make it possible are the most beautiful people in the world.

Xoxoday has built a platform that enables Hosting of experiences and make them available for Guests and Enterprises to explore and book on the go. Xoxoday is a true companion when it comes to celebrating Birthdays, Anniversaries, a long relaxing weekend, a family outing or if you are just new in town. Their motto is to make sure that whenever you do something, it should be beyond extraordinary.

That Experience called Getting Inspired

Earlier known as Giftxoxo.com, it was started as a group gifting company in 2012. Although they were in the space of providing gift items for people, their business model has transformed over a period of time with interim twists and turns during the process.

Giftxoxo started out as a group gifting company that largely catered to the Wedding market, quickly expanded to corporate gifting sector that even led to the creation of a tech interface. During that period, they supplied any gifting item such as, pens, mugs, t-shirts, TV sets, Gift vouchers, Bags, etc. as per corporate requirements. As the company showed good growth, they evolved as per the new gifting trend of “Gifting Experiences”. They ventured into gifting adventure experience like Skydiving or a wellness experience like an Egyptian Spa or a Farming experience in the village. Giftxoxo was curating many such beautiful experiences using the existing corporate gifting channel. With the rising demand in the market to automate and digitize the overall employee reward program in the corporates, they built an enterprise SaaS-based platform named as XoxoEngage.com for corporates through which the corporate companies could digitize their total reward program for the employees.

In the third year of operations, they managed to do a business of 11 crores INR, and in the fourth year, they did a business of close to 40 crores INR. In December 2016, they fine-tuned their business with Xoxoday as one single brand identity to serve Hosts, Guests and Enterprises.

That Experience called Entrepreneurship

Xoxoday is the realization of entrepreneurial aspiration of four young bloods.

A Computer Science Engineer from PEC Chandigarh and an MBA from IIM Kozhikode, Manoj Agarwal has worked with Yahoo, Manipal Education and Flipkart in various roles. He has over 10 years of experience in technology, product, marketing and business excellence.

An MBA from TAPMI, Sumit Khandelwal has worked with companies such as Wipro Consumer Care, Hexaware and Metro, where he was active in the fields of Cash and Carry in Sales, Distribution and Marketing Functions. He has over 8 years of experience in Business Strategy, Consumer Sales, Investor Relations and Finance Functions.

An Adventure Enthusiast, Kushal Agrawal, loves to travel and meet new people. He has represented India in several long formats of adventure such as Mongol Rally (An Unsupported drive from London to Mongolia), Great Rift Valley Drive and many more. He has travelled to 25+ countries across Europe, Africa and Asia.

The four co-founders attempted to tap into the Wedding market in India and abroad. They built a tech interface for group gifting requirements. When they entered the gifting business for the corporates, they supplied anything and everything, from pens to gift vouchers. Although it gave a huge boost to the growth of the company, they eventually realized the intensity and the manual involvement required to scale the business.
With strong business fundamentals and lowest burn rate in the startup fraternity, the extensive team at Xoxoday is growing organically and continues to sustain with the same vigor.
