It’s good to release the podcast interview with Sumit Jain on the day when his company, CommonFloor, has been officially acquired by Quikr for an estimated US$ 120 Million. (approximately Rs.780 Crores). I met Sumit at Great Lakes Institute of Management, where we invited him to be part of conference. He came across to me as a quiet achiever with no fanfare.
After dabbling in corporate jobs for a while, Sumit responded to his entrepreneurial calling. From a modest beginning in 2007, with a handful of IIT techies, a bright idea and an empty garage, his startup has come a long way. With 63 million dollars in funding, Sumit has grown his company to be India’s largest apartment portal. (I wrongly mentioned the funding as US$ 40 Million in the podcast).
