Power of Dreams?

If you can’t dream about something, you can’t get it

From Startup to Conglomerate?

We have a long-term vision but our expectation of reality needs to become is 3-6 months

Is Competition Rattling Zomato?

We are the kind of people who think if a problem is a problem, it needs to be solved. If somebody innovates, it’s something to learn from

What is the Ownership Mindset & Goal Setting at Zomato?

I have always tried to create a team where everyone works with the founder’s mindset. They don’t need to set goals, they will anyway do their best. Putting pressure on people to do work beyond what they can do, doesn’t work

When Should One Take the Entrepreneurial Leap?

Giving people goals which are less than what they can do, doesn’t work. People overestimate the amount of risk or damage doing a startup can do to their lives

Should Failures be Celebrated?

Failures are awesome. If you are within Zomato, you would know we fail 100 times in a day

Does Being No 1 Matter to Zomato?

Being Number 1 is a state of mind, it’s an infinite game, I don’t think there is any such thing as winning, you just to be able to continue to play for it as long as possible
