Bengaluru-based startup MyCeiling claims to be the first to offer an innovative “ready-to-fit” substitute with inbuilt light automation for traditional false ceilings.
Walls, furniture, furnishings…the home décor market has options aplenty. If anything’s missing focus, it’s the ceiling. Imagine how a fancy, well-lit ceiling that can be operated with a remote could change the look of your home?
Bengaluru-based MyCeiling aims to do just that. Founded by Jay Sah and Rohit Kumar in 2017, the Bengaluru-based startup manufactures tech-driven, ready-to-fit ceilings that are multi-functional. MyCeiling claims to be the first-of-its-kind manufacturing company to offer this innovative “ready-to-fit” substitute with inbuilt light automation for the traditional false ceiling (usually made of POP cement or gypsum board).
The startup, which has its headquarters and manufacturing unit in Bengaluru, has tied up with home décor brands, interior designers, architects, and lighting showrooms to pitch its product pan-India. MyCeiling also supplies its products to several home decor and lighting showrooms in Bengaluru.
How things started
Jay, a design graduate from NIFT, Bengaluru, freelanced as an interior designer and went on to work at Livspace. But he wanted to build a product of his own and came up with the “ceilings” idea in December 2015 during a brainstorming session with his then manager at Livspace, Chandan Laxman.
In early 2017, Jay posted pictures of his product on social media with an aim to attract investors. Rohit Kumar who had recently resigned from his job was looking to start a business. He showed a keen interest in the product and the company.
In June 2017, Rohit Kumar, who holds an MBA in finance and has worked with companies like KPMG(India)and Rise Finconnect Private Limited, joined Jay as the co-founder. The duo invested 20 lakh and began to think of what they could offer the market. Chandan Laxman joined the startup as Head of Operations, later in the same year.
