Quora is the leading knowledge sharing platform in the world, and India is one of the strongest market of the brand with over 70 million monthly unique visitors in English.

Gurmit is a business administration graduate from the Faculty of Management Studies (FMS) at the University of Delhi.

In the next few months, Gurmit will also help open Quora’s first office in India as he builds a team to support businesses in the India market. Our audience in India is curious and engaged and we are very excited to further our investment in the market to support both users and businesses on the Quora platform.
