Rajat started Snap Search in 2019. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Snap Search?
So, I moved to Bangalore 5 years ago to pursue my Master's degree in Computers and what a decision it was! It changed my life. In these 5 years, I participated in, won and even conducted my own Hackathons, attended multiple developer fests and conferences, took part in workshops, got a great internship and a very well paid full-time role as well. I also sold 3 of my apps to a startup in the US for some good $$$. But none of that could kill or calm the entrepreneur in me.
I’ve been building, coding, designing, developing since the age of 13, and I’m 25 now, and that’s what I like to do best.
You cannot expect every individual to share the same love for your product as you have. Take the negative and positive feedback and convert it into bettering your product instead.
The idea for Snap Search came through frustration. Just like most people, if there’s something I don’t know, I instantly Google about it. And so I did one day as well. But Google went a step ahead and decided that search query was important for me, and started showing me suggestions and news articles related to that. The next day, I even had Instagram hinting about it. And this did happen even though I used incognito mode on my browser to try to be discreet. I immediately knew I had to do something. Who hasn’t been tracked online? It had to change. So I thought of Snap Search - a way to quickly search your favorite websites without getting tracked online.
I did have some background on this thankfully. Being a lead software developer for a top VPN company, I had some experience in user privacy and ways of ensuring that. It helped a lot in Snap Search.
