Wang believes India is not a good market to make quick & easy money. But if a company wants to make build something great and worthwhile, India is the only option in the world.

The globally-acclaimed app sees India as its top market with 300 million users and over 1 billion users globally..

In its quest to capture a larger of the Indian users’ pie, it is offering content sharing in Hindi in tier-II, tier-III cities, primarily for middle and low-income consumers.

“Innovation worldwide goes for Artificial Intelligence or space technologies but China is similar to India. The billion people do not care about space technology; they are focused on billion model innovation,” Wang told Entrepreneur India.
