Who is Gaurav Sabharwal?

Gaurav’s entrepreneurial drive was ignited at a young age as he was born into a business family. At just 19, he launched his first entrepreneurial venture while studying Finance at NYU’s prestigious Stern School of Business. This early foray into the business world laid the groundwork for becoming a driven entrepreneur.

Gaurav has co-founded and led tech-enabled businesses to success over the last two decades. His entrepreneurial endeavors have been driven by his passion for growth, value systems, and building high-performing teams. His enthusiasm for networking with other business leaders enables him to constantly generate new ideas and tackle complex business challenges.

Gaurav’s achievements as a strategic leader are inspiring. He has founded three successful businesses in the United States and India. What sets him apart is his ability to build and empower teams, allowing him to focus on what truly motivates him – problem-solving for business and team performance.

Gaurav’s Vision for JOP: Building High-Performing Teams

His vision as the CEO of JOP is crystal clear: to be a growth catalyst for global businesses by building high-performing teams.

He sees JOP, a powerful B2B OKR management software, as the key to unlocking the true potential of organizations worldwide, with a strong emphasis on teamwork and business growth.

Gaurav aims to empower businesses with JOP by providing a powerful solution that fosters collaboration, innovation, a culture of continuous improvement, alignment, and aspirational growth.

Gaurav’s Journey of Entrepreneurship

Building successful businesses

Gaurav carefully nurtured three successful businesses over the years. He embraced the challenges of growth and expansion, from his early involvement in the family business to his entry into technology in 2008.

However, while building and scaling businesses, he encountered a common struggle: aligning teams with the vision of the founders and the business.

Thanks to his network of mentor friends, one of them introduced him to OKRs, a goal-setting methodology used by successful companies worldwide. He is an advocate of OKRs and also a Scaled OKRs Certified Coach.

Gaurav wasted no time in implementing this transformative approach across his existing businesses, thanks to his newfound knowledge of OKRs. The results were uplifting: his businesses grew by approximately 40% year on year.

Joy of Performing – The future of work

Work takes up a significant portion of our daily lives. It’s not just about the bottom line; it’s about creating a culture where teams can thrive and find joy in their work. He recognized that ambiguity in roles and poor performance could lead to burnout and dissatisfaction.

Driven by a vision to transform the future of work, Gaurav built JOP to bring joy to the workplace by empowering teams to achieve positive outcomes. It’s not just about hitting targets; it’s about aligning roles, purpose, and potential to achieve extraordinary results.
