Interview: Sanjeev Bikhchandani, Naukri.com
A few months ago, I was eagerly awaiting the Info Edge (naukri.com) IPO, as it was the first Indian “pure internet / dotcom” company to come out with a public issue in the Indian stockmarkets. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength. There were several articles on the company at the time, and it was interesting to read about it’s initial struggle and also about the single minded focus and determination of it’s founder, Sanjeev Bikhchandani, that allowed it to successfully overcome the dotcom meltdown at the turn of the century.
More recently, the company was also in the news for it’s innovative “Hari Sadu” campaign, which even provoked someone with a similar name to file a case against Naukri. Of course, as was to be expected, the company refused to give in or even withdraw the ad.
A couple of days ago, I chanced upon a mail from Gautam Ghosh in one of the HR e-groups on Yahoo, which spoke of the opportunity he got to have an interview with Sanjeev Bikhchandani. To simply say that the interview was “interesting” would be a gross understatement, and Gautam has framed his questions quite well. Read all about what one of India’s most successful dotcom entrepreneurs has to say.
P.S: Maybe in the not too distant future, someone would be interviewing Gautam… 🙂
