FlipKart: India’s Amazon

To be honest whatever I write is probably already covered in the video, except that Binny and Sachin Bansal are from IIT Delhi 2005 batch, one year senior to me! Flipkart is an amazing site and its success makes me very proud. Firstly because the founders are my seniors, secondly because it proves that ebusinesses are possible in India, and thirdly because instead of an established player a startup has been able to crack the ecommerce market of books in India. All credit to Sachin and Binny for having the guts to take the risk, leave their jobs, start a website and take it to such a level. Kudos guys and all the best for the way ahead.

Update: Just a day after this post the following came up in VCCircle! “FlipKart raises upto $10mn from Tiger Global”

  2. I guess, people use flipcart more than amazon in india.

    Infact, I haven’t seen any of my friends ordering from other online book provider.

    Great job, Binny and Sachin.

It is a best online bookstore in India, here you can find books on any subjects and streams like Engineering, Medical, PUC exams, question banks, Spiritual books,like Bhagvadgita, children story books and also you can find your favorite authors like Ruskin bond, Charles books etc.
