Sachin Bansal – The master mind behind the Flipkart idea, one of the first people to establish an e-commerce website in India, an IIT graduate and a business man who created something of a history in the great Indian internet shopping revolution.
At the time of raising $1-billion last year, the Bansals’ combined stake of around 15 per cent in Flipkart was valued at Rs 6,000 crore (Rs 60 billion).
The story of how the two men started with just two laptops and grew to its current size is inspirational.
They were not only able to ride India’s robust consumption story, but also earned the investors’ willingness to place their bets on their company.
