tag8 co-founded by a CA & former partner at EY wins the first place at the Retail Startup Awards from the Retail Association of India








It was in January 2015, that CA Sanjay Chakrabarti, who was then a partner at EY, decided to take a leap of faith and join his colleague from EY, Alok Sheth, an engineer and MBA, in his entrepreneurial journey. This led to the birth of 3Y Ventures LLP, which owns the brand tag8 - a global track and trace company that secures valuables with the philosophy of 'Make Finding Smarter'.


Six years down the line, their belief in their company and the need for the solutions they provide to their clients has only grown stronger.


On the 26th of February, 2021, 3Y Ventures LLP won first place at the prestigious Retail Start-up Awards from the Retail Association of India, which is another testament to the growing market for tag8 products.



"A big thank you to the esteemed jury members for this acknowledgement, it is a significant milestone for us, to the entire tag8 team, to all our partners and business associates and to our valued customers who have shown faith in us and adopted our products, helping create a new category, not only in India but around the globe," says Sanjay Chakrabarti. 



You can use tag8 to secure your daily routine items such as phones, wallets, keys, laptops, and also to secure travel items like passports, bags, cameras.  While you are occupied in your pursuits, tag8 ensures your valuables are secured.


The technology deployed in tag8 products range from QR code, BLE to GPS tracking.  tag8’s offerings are supported by a 24x7 Customer Help Desk to ensure that at any point of time, from any part of the world, tag8 is just a call away from its users.



He adds, "Alok and I are not sitting on our laurels. We have big plans to grow the company in the years ahead and have recently expanded our business in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and UAE. Our vision is to have the tag8 brand resonate with track and trace products and solutions around the world."



tag8 is trusted with over 0.7 million registered valuables, and has an 80%+ return rate across different categories of products, with the highest return rate on passports.
