About Us

Founded in 2011 by entrepreneurs Ranvir Gujral and Gregarious Narain, Chute helps brands and publishers tell better stories using visual media. Our visual marketing automation platform makes it possible to discover, organize, obtain consent and publish fan photos and videos at every customer touch point — as a mobile app, photo gallery, banner ad or even a billboard in Times Square.

We believe the future of business is visual and our tools to manage, measure and drive engagement have become essential for marketers. We work with some incredible companies, including Benefit Cosmetics, Taco Bell, Condé Nast, Turner, the NBA, New York Times, Taylor Made, Samsung and House of Blues Entertainment.
