About me – Nikhilesh Tayal
Founded stagephod to pursue my love for theater and filmmaking. I started making short films and experienced the problems faced by independent video creators. When I spent time with other filmmakers, I realized that there are many filmmakers taking up video related assignments from organizations to earn some money, and on the other hand couple of my entrepreneur friends were looking for filmmakers.
The initial idea was to create a platform where filmmakers and other artists can showcase their work and find people to collaborate with. I then decided that this could be converted into a marketplace as there are many people on both sides.
This is my second startup, first was CVBhejo, which was a recruitment platform for Tier 2 and Tier 3 Indian cities so have a fair experience with startups from founding to funding to shut down. My startup was accelerated by The Morpheus in 2012. During that period, I was also selected by Bloomberg TV in Top 10 emerging entrepreneurs for its TV series, ‘The Pitch’. After closing down CVBhejo, I worked as recruitment advisor for The Morpheus gang portfolio companies.
Pivot to marketplace for video makers
After interacting with filmmakers, I realized that having a marketplace will add more value to a filmmaker’s life by providing them work opportunities and also will make life easy for startups/ brands/ NGOs by giving them a platform to find video makers.”
Currently 85 startups including SnapDeal, CashKaro and Commonfloor are using the platform. 200+ filmmakers are associated with us.

Stagephod’s power resides in lively and constantly growing a community of filmmakers across India. In coming months, we will be working more for this growing community. Customer can choose from a corporate video, promo video, product video, explanatory video, music video, web series, wedding films, social video, short film or wedding films.
I am confident that we can find a video maker of any kind, any budget, and anywhere in India. We got one requirement from Dantewada district, Chattisgarh, and they wanted a video maker from Chattisgarh itself. I was very skeptical about this requirement but to my surprise, we found three people who were from Chattisgarh.
I always wanted to combine theater/films, technology, and entrepreneurship. I think some dots got connected now and some will connect in future.”
