“I always wanted to solve the real social issues which are clung to our society. In those days, crimes related to women were all over the news and social media. This grabbed my attention and I tried to think about its solutions. After a lot of research, I found myself looking towards the self-defense products. Later I have realized that there is a huge gap between these self-defense products and the general masses. In Fact, these products were alien to many people but they were unaware of the existence of this simple solution for the social safety and security problem. Even among the public who knew about these products, they had no idea as to where to get these products. That’s when I came up with the idea to start up XBoom and since then I have tried to make the society a better place in my own small way.” Says Mr. Vishal Saurav (CEO, XBOOM Utilities Pvt LTD)
Brief something about the company
The company was founded in 2015 and is operating its headquarters in Bangalore and a branch in Delhi, the capital of India. The company believes that self-defense is an important aspect of life; hence XBoom is born which offers a variety of self-defense and safety products. The company started with the primary motive to secure the women of our country with simple and effective products. Our first product in the line was Advanced Pepper Spray which became popular and widely accepted. After the success of our first product, we introduced various other self-defense products. In 2017, we launched a range of products in the category of Premise Security and GPS Trackers.

Brainchild behind Xboom
I am Vishal Saurav born and brought up in Ranchi. I moved to Bangalore in 2008 to complete my Bachelors in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from Dayanand Sagar College, Bangalore. After completing my education, I decided to move forward in life and I got a job as a Software Engineer at Trianz where I worked for 2.5 yrs. However, after getting the previous experience I decided to quit the job and I have come up with my own idea to start a startup company which is now known as ‘Xboom’. My aim in life is to establish a safe society for people especially women and through my work, I aim to bring a change in the life of the general public.
Challenges and Solutions
Most of the people are unaware about the safety products available in the Indian market which can safeguard one’s life from external threats. People don’t take safety precautions very seriously until something unexpected happens to themselves or with their loved ones. The lack of knowledge among the people has been our biggest challenge till date and in order to discuss these problems, we started raising awareness on the need for safety & self-defence products through wide level marketing and seminars in industries, corporate, schools, colleges and other such platforms which are in need of safety and self-defence products.

We are also in partnership with some of the top NGO’s working on the concept of women’s safety like Nirbhaya Jyoti and SWF. We have served some of the top corporates like Apollo Pharmacy, Siemens, SIS India Ltd, Mahindra retail, AstraZeneca, Medlife etc”, Says Vishal Saurav.
