Lunch and Learn: How to turn an idea into a reality – with Chai Guys founders

Posted: Wed 6th Jul 2022

In this Lunch and Learn, Gabriel Unger and Abhilash Jobanputra of Chai Guys explain how to turn a good idea into a great business.

The pair became good friends when they were working in the corporate world at Deloitte. Then a trip to India essentially changed everything.

They stayed up until 3am every single night discussing this idea. On the last day of the trip, they came back with a suitcase full of tea and experimented for eight months afterwards, finally launching their business, Chai Guys. They now have two central London sites and run a successful e-commerce business.

Key takeaways from this session:

  • How to leverage social media to boost your brand awareness

  • Quitting your day job when the time is right

  • Why establishing a good network can improve your chances of success

  • Why it's important for small business owners to remain resilient
