THE PET CARE ECOSYSTEM IS ON THE VERGE OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND DISRUPTION

Supertails is your one-stop solution when it comes to pet wellness and health care needs. You can shop for pet food, accessories, grooming essentials and even book online vet consultation for your pets. The trio, Vineet Khanna, Varun Sadana and Aman Tekriwal, who founded Supertails have worked together in start-ups like Snapdeal and Licious. Vineet and Varun come from IIM Lucknow and Aman is a Chartered Accountant. It did not take long for them to decide that they were not cut-out for big established companies. Vineet with a stint of 5 and half years and Varun with 3 and a half years with Tata and Uniliver respectively started working with start-ups. Their working together in Licious (fresh meat brand) is what triggered a dream of starting off something of their own.
