Karan has achieved many milestones in his career and has been instrumental in building some of the leading startup brands in India. I’m thrilled Karan will be joining our company to play a prominent role in leading the journey,” said Harshil Mathur, CEO & Co-Founder, Razorpay.

Prior to joining Razorpay, Sarin was with OnePlus India, a fast-growing startup in the mobile space, disrupting the smartphone industry.
