Sachin Bansal, former chief executive officer of Flipkart, shared his mantra of success and how he became a billionaire investor.
In October 2007, Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal founded Flipkart, an online bookstore. Sachin Bansal exited Flipkart in 2018 after Walmart’s acquisition and is now a serial investor with investments in over 5 startups.
“Five years ago we had no idea where this was going. Our idea was just to start up and see as we grow along, see where it goes and take it from there. Over time we have been able to expand our horizons and able to see more and more of the market,” he said.
“One line was that online shopping should work in India and we will make it work,” recounted Bansal.
