The joy has left Housejoy at the moment. Reportedly, the co-founders of the Bengaluru-based hyperlocal startup, Arjun Kumar and Sunil Goel have quit the company in the wake of a Board-executed decision.
As per a report by Money Control, the Board allegedly forced the two founders to create a single point of contact when it came to making decisions for the company and gave the power to CEO Saran Chatterjee.
The report also quoted a spokesperson’s statement from Housejoy: “The decision was taken by the Board and the company keeping the best interests of the company in mind. The founders and the board hired a professional team, which is the CEO and the leadership team to take the company to the next level, post-Series B funding.”
Multiple queries sent to Housejoy did not elicit a response at the time of publication.
