The founders of online E-Commerce portal, Snapdeal, include Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal who started off as friends from high school. Together they created one of the largest online platforms for India to ever begin with, and have gracefully made their mark in this sector. Here’s some facts you might have not known about them, despite their popularity.
Did you know that both of them declined merging with Flipkart? Today, Snapdeal stands as a 400 million user base platform which definitely worked in their favour.
Snapdeal’s base is located in Muzzafarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. Rohit and Kunal named the Shiv Namegar village ‘Snapdeal’ instead, and have been providing the villagers all the amenities they need.
Initially, when Snapdeal was launched in 2010, they focused on making the platform permissable only for daily deals and coupons. By September 2011, the idea of an online store helped the company sell better!
How cool is that?
