After passing out from IIM-Bangalore, Chauhan turned entrepreneur after three years in a regular corporate job. He wanted to get into the school segment and had a business model. But had no idea about how to create a Web portal. That is when a chance meeting with Bikhchandani, whom he had met quite often earlier, got the Info Edge founder interested in Chauhan’s business plan – Meritnation. Info Edge that owns the job search engine, had invested in Meritnation. Meritnation provides multimedia tutorials, interactive exercises, assessment tools, exam help and expert support for students across India and Gulf.
