Two decades ago, a 15-something boy, with an affinity for technology, realized the potential of the IT industry and convinced his family to start a web development company. The company we now know as Classic Informatics.
On 2nd July 2002, the company was officially founded in New Delhi, India.
And this date has always been special for all of us at Classic Informatics. And this year, we’ve hit a big milestone; the twenty years milestone!
Two decades of serving the IT industry and the heart of every Classicite is filled with pride and gratitude on the joyous occasion.
We’ve certainly come a long way and are in no plans to stop anytime soon!
With several projects on the plate, an 80-90% customer retention rate, and a great team on board, we are all set to take on the world of digital next, transformation, automation, and next-gen solutions.
Started by our CEO When He Was Just 16!
Yeah, you read that right!
Classic Informatics was established by our CEO, Mr. Rajiv Mehta, when he was just 16! A teenage boy, with a knack for technology. He had identified the potential that the IT industry had and the great things he could achieve through coding.
This determination was enough to lead to the birth of Classic Informatics. And the rest, as we all know, is history!
Here's a video showcasing our journey so far!
Let’s drop another interesting fact your way-
Did you know that Classic Informatics was a bootstrapped startup?
And without the persistence and consistency displayed by the team, it wouldn’t have been possible. With faith in the team and the will to overcome every challenge thrown in the way, Classic Informatics has been able to achieve great milestones.
But would it even be a celebration if we do not take a look back at the journey and reminisce about the twenty years of learnings, challenges, and milestones?
So, here we are, on the 20th anniversary of Classic Informatics, celebrating:

Our journey had been a rollercoaster ride that wouldn’t have been possible without being persistent.
#20 Years Of Gaining Expertise

And that’s what we did. We started with technologies of the time and kept adding to the stack. Today, we are also focusing on next-gen technologies like serverless, RPA, low-code, no-code, MarTech, APIs, process automation, and more.

Additionally, we also kept enhancing the value of gifts that we provide to keep them motivated to deliver better results.
#20 Years Of Being Exceptional

#20 Years Of Enjoying The Journey
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last 20 years of doing business. We have loved the rollercoaster that these past years have been for us. The obstacles that the digital world threw at us, challenging projects, and much more. But what we enjoyed the most was the joy and satisfaction of delivering projects that our clients loved.
So, where are we now?
Well, it’s safe to say that we are no longer a “startup”.
