OUR STORY

Crossing the seven seas was once considered a far-fetched dream but it has become a common phenomenon for Indians. We have found prodigious success abroad over the last few decades. Though, for many of us, home is still where our roots lie. A feeling, that cannot be expressed in words but is felt deeply at its peak during the festive and holiday season.

For many of us, living abroad, away from home, this emotion has become a part and parcel of life. While visiting parents and extended family can subside our feelings for sometime, we know it can-not stay this way always. Bravely, some of us, have let go thoughts of returning home. Yet, for few others, this is buried deep in the heart - occasionally stimulating the instinct of exploring an option to return to our roots.

THE TRIGGER.
Shekhar and his wife, after having lived in the States for manyyears decided to move back to India to be closer to their family and to pursue the opportunities that India's expanding economy had to offer. Although he knew that the move might not be easy, Shekhar had not expected the road to India to be paved with so many hurdles and difficulties at every nook and corner. They faced challenges on the professional front, moving the goods to India, finding the right locality to live in, renting a home, finding reliable domestic services, availing financial services, converting over from their NRI status to resident - the list goes on. Basically, because of the lack of proper guidance, even small problems turned into big ones.

Shekhar knew that their experience was not unique and the same was faced by almost every NRI/Expat who wanted to settle in India. This triggered the idea of Vroomble - a service, which would help people to smoothly relocate to India in a seamless manner.

THEEVOLUTION.
Conversations with friends gave one clear message - the lack of support system and structured process results in an exhausting and unpredictable experience for anyone who wants to come back to India. The stakeholders involved lack accountability, the information feed is unreliable, un-authentic and untimely. This leads to, people dropping their intention of moving back to India or failing to have a proper transition thereby making them head back abroad where things and processes are more structured and definite.

Clearly,there were possibilities to better the 'relocation to India' experience. This crying need led to the formation of a think-tank with Shekhar at the helm along with his school buddy Rahul and his office colleague Chaitanya. After some intense planning, trials and discussions with close friends, subject matter experts, interviewing people who had faced similar transition challenges, the founders narrowed down on a solution - - a distinctive service enabled platform, which could bridge this gap.

And thus Vroomble was born with the aim of providing Services for NRIs/ Expats in India. With the pursuit of making peoples’ life easier, we bring to you a platform that will be one stop solution enabling you to either make the transition and/or services experience predictable, hassle free and above-all seamless. Vroomble strives forhappy families, great careers and wonderful time with friends and relatives for NRI's and Expats in India!

That's when we zeroed on this classy name – Vroomble = Vroom (Fast) + Enable (Make it easy).
