About

The Journey so far We've been in business for 2.5 years!

Brick by brick, we are working towards building a bootstrapped, engineering and design first technology company out of India. Given our long term outlook towards business, we need to invest in things that do not go out of style. Here are some milestones along the way.


Pykih is founded by Ritvvij as a custom data visualisation services company.
Fun Fact: The word pykih came to us in a CAPTCHA. That’s the day we decided that till we do good work it does not matter what we are called.
