About Us

Chisel’s mission is to help you craft amazing products. We believe there are three important aspects of crafting amazing products – building the right product at the right time, aligning the team, and building deep, direct customer connection. Many software tools in the market allow Product Makers to manage their roadmaps. However, they fall short of providing great tools to align your team or building a great customer connection. Chisel was founded to provide a cohesive platform to drive these three aspects of Product management.


Our co-founders Praful and Vivek collectively have 40+ years of experience building products used by millions of users across the world. Our advisors Andrew and Parag collectively have 35+ years of experience in building prominent products. Their collective experience as hands-on product leaders and practitioners have provided us deep insights into the limitations of product management tools in the market and consequent pain felt by product managers. Chisel aims to address these pain points and gaps.





Our leaders have worked across several prominent Products and Companies
