Arunabh is the Founder & CEO of UClean which is Asia's largest laundry and dry-cleaning chain working on the franchise model.

With 1 Mn+ customers spread across 2000+ pin codes of the country, UClean is rightfully credited with ushering in the laundry revolution in the entire Indian subcontinent.

An IIT Mumbai graduate, Arunabh carries solid amount of experience in the franchising and startup space and is widely regarded as a scale-up specialist. In his previous entrepreneurial venture, Arunabh had the opportunity to very closely look at the retail space in South East Asia.

A huge believer in microentrepreneurship, Arunabh has leveraged the power of franchising to introduce UClean across multiple neighbourhoods of the country.

Apart from UClean, Arunabh also works as an advisor to multiple brands and mentors them on their expansion and scaleup, primarily through the franchise route.
