Vaibhav Chavan is the Founder and CEO of underDOGS Studio LLP. Over 15 years in the gaming industry, wearing multiple hats from being a Game Designer, Game Producer, and Game Director to a founder, he has grown as an entrepreneur running a sustainable gaming business. He is a computer engineer but was always interested in creating businesses. Soon after his engineering degree, he moved away from tech and took a low-paying job as a Game Designer at Indiagames. Soon after, he realized that the hunger to start his venture led him to learn more about networking and the business of selling games. Hence, he joined Hungama as a Game Producer in late 2009.
With great enthusiasm and an entrepreneurial mindset, all he tried doing at Hungama was to connect with people and form business relationships. He took 1.5 years to let people know he existed and someday might start his entrepreneurial journey. In 2011 at the age of 26, he started underDOGS with a vision to be the go-to vendor for every more prominent gaming company to get their mobile games made. underDOGS have delivered more than 250 games globally in the last ten years. He has been a consultant and mentor for gaming businesses and over 17000 students, helping them find the right paths for growth and creating successful career paths. He has produced over 300 videos on his Youtube channel as a content creator specifically for games, game development, and the gaming industry. Yourstory, The Hindu, Inc42, Pocketgamer, Polygon, and other reputed publications have featured him and underDOGS in their articles and other resources. In addition, he has delivered over ten workshops and 50 talks in gaming companies, colleges, and online events.
