Flipkart founders ready to 'grow up'
By Amy Kazmin | Financial Times | In The Web | New Delhi | August, 2014

 

In a country where secure employment is something of a holy grail, many tried to dissuade Indian software engineers Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal from quitting their jobs at Amazon.com in 2007 to start Flipkart, which they described as a "humble online bookstore".

 

But remaining doubters were surely silenced this week after Flipkart raised $1bn in new equity to expand in India's rapidly growing ecommerce market, an investment that Sachin Bansal, the 32-year-old chief executive, likened to a coming of age.

 

The deal was the largest single funding round raised by an Indian internet company and valued Flipkart, the country's largest e-retailer, at about $7bn, say those familiar with the transaction.

 

"We have been like this little kid that was waiting to grow up to something," Sachin Bansal said. "This investment helps us think really, really long term."

 

Shopping over internet is rapidly gaining popularity with India's consuming class as an alternative to a bricks-and-mortar retail sector still dominated by tiny mom-and-pop shops with limited, and erratic, stock.

 

Indians are only expected to buy about $2.3bn worth of goods over the internet this year, but the skyrocketing use of internet enabled by smart phones is expected to propel online retail sales to more than $30bn within the next five years. It is a tantalising potential market, despite the sobering reality that no player has yet to make any profit.

 

The Flipkart founders, who were both raised in the northern city of Chandigarh and graduated in 2004 from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, are counting on their first-mover advantage, and homegrown appeal, to help them weather intensifying competition from their initial inspiration, Amazon. "Being a local player, we are definitely more connected to the ground reality in the country," says Sachin Bansal. "Commerce is a very local activity, driven by local conditions and culture. We believe being local is an advantage."

 

University acquaintances who became close after they both relocated to Bangalore to start their working lives, the Bansals drew the initial inspiration for their business from the success of travel-oriented ecommerce websites, like MakeMyTrip.

 

"We started seeing this huge boom of online travel, like MakeMyTrip.com," says Sachin Bansal. "We saw that ecommerce wasn't really happening. We were a bit overconfident, and we thought two people from an apartment can do it."

 

With Rs 400,000 in combined savings, the friends thought they could launch the business. But they burnt through their cash far faster than expected, forcing each to turn to their respective parents for help just for their daily needs.

 

"I had told my parents we had enough money for two years, and we would try for two years then see what happens," Sachin Bansal recalls. "But we ran out of money after six months. Then I was on a monthly allowance from my parents." After a few months, Flipkart had enough revenues to allow its co-founders to draw small salaries and, in early 2009, they raised their first equity investment from Accel Partners.

 

Today, their biggest challenge will be how to deploy their enhanced war chest to compete most effectively with Amazon, which has been investing aggressively in India since launching its own site a year ago.

 

In wrestling with these issues, the two friends have evolved a clear working style, with Sachin Bansal the more gut-driven individual, and Binny Bansal, whose formal title is chief operating offer, more analytical and data driven.

 

"Sachin is more intuitive and more of a dreamer, and I bring the data and the reality check," says Binny. "That combination is quite powerful. It's very complementary how we do things."

 

It is a combination that they are hoping can help them maintain their company's leadership - and hopefully eventually start turning a profit - in India's ecommerce sector.
