It is a one stop shop for all 21st century products that has something for everyone- Be it housewifes, seniors, children, travellers, techies, gamers, etc.
Inspired by his fascination for technology and toys, Tejas Jhaveri founded Flintstop in 2014. During his childhood, he would be curious about the functionality of electric devices and would open them up to see how they operate.
“Pursue your passion” is what his parents told him.
That’s when he bid farewell to this 9-6 job and booked his tickets for Hong Kong to attend an exhibition which was a complete eye opener for him. The products presented at that exhibition were all unique and not easy to find. On seeing this, he knew exactly what he wanted to do.
Tejas spent months browsing on the internet looking for these products but he did not find what he was looking for. The India markets needed products like this but the demand for such products in India was not being met with any supply. Why not bridge the gap with a e-commerce platform?
On launching, when they got their first order they realised there was a definite need for quirky products. That was even more assuring and motivating.
At inception, Flintstop was started with a motive of making life easier along with adding fun and colour to it. The essence of the names Flintstop is deeper- if an idea pops up and if it is attainable, they are hell bound on curating it.
You could mildly put it as striking stones together to create a spark—which they call an idea—and finally, a small evolution of technology emerges to make your world a better and faster place.
With limited finances back then, Flintstop comprised of only two people- Tejas and an office boy. All the tasks of listing, packaging, marketing, even delivers were handled by the two of them. Now the team consist of 20 full-timers and 3 part time employees who are extremely hard working and passionate.
All the handwork pays off if you engage in something you love.
Flintstop has wildly expanded from 8 products to 2400 products in multiple categories like; Home & Kitchen, Electronics, Personal & Healthcare, Stationery, Bar, Augmented Reality, 3D Printing, etc.
A usual day at Flintstop is flourished with 100 – 150 orders a day and they have sales between 10-15 lakhs/month, which is growing rapidly.
Corporate Gifting is a significant category at Flintstop. It has succeeded in fulfilling multiple corporate orders for conglomerates like Etihad Airways, Edelweiss, Indiabulls, Roshan Publications, Godrej, Sun Pharma, Siemens, Aditya Birla Group and many more.
The mission of Flintstop is not just limited to selling products. Their vision is to be an inventor, look out for problems and come up with products that can solve those problems.
Flintstop is working on building an Innovation Centre for people who have the product ideas but lack the skills to build those products. Here, they can turn their dreams into reality. Flintstop will also help them through mass manufacturing as well as Crowd funding.
Their goal is to be known in history as life changing inventors.
