Last week, we welcomed CNBC into our headquarters for a little one on one game of Ping-Pong! Well…that was only a fraction of the reason they visited us.

Last week, we welcomed CNBC into our headquarters for a little one on one game of Ping-Pong! Well…that was only a fraction of the reason they visited us.

It's an office that could easily be mistaken for a college recreational room. Bright colors and easy-going casuals is the office dress code that has a little over 40 people representing 15 different nationalities – be it Armenians, Germans or Indians.

At Truecaller, we have been global since the first coding was punched into our computer screens; whether it be distribution of our app, or the hiring of our employees. We strive to create an app that will benefit everyone, no matter the country! During CNBC's filming of our headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, they had a sit down with our CEO, Alan Mamedi, to pick his brain about Truecaller's story and growth.

Alan Mamedi, Co-Founder, Truecaller, says that the idea first stemmed from their anger that one could not tell the callers whose numbers weren’t saved on the phone. Since its launch, the app has been an instant hit with over 55 million users and 30 million of them right here in India. The company is now aiming bigger hoping to end 2014 by more than doubling their users in India.

Thanks for a great interview CNBC, and we promise we won't tell everyone who won the Ping-Pong match!
