‘Zlade’ A start-up which was launched from a 2 BHK apartment, in Pune now makes Rs 1 Cr revenue !

Harish Amritkar, an Executive MBA student from SIBM, Pune is a part of the founding team. Along with Harish Amritka, MrMihir Vaidya (An Engineer) and Mr.Suraj Chaudhari ( a pharmacy student ) are the founding partners of Zlade.

Zlade came out with two types of razors – four-blade and six-blade. Besides that, it also introduced natural and chemical-free shaving products, such as shaving gels and alcohol-free aftershave.

The trio spent three years to collect data and feedback from thousands and then came up with a product line, rebranding the company to Zlade in August 2018. They then moved into to an office and a warehouse in Pune.


Zlade now offers quality shaving products at affordable prices. The startup is also recognised by the Government of India and is part of the Startup India programme.
