Rahul Yadav, former CEO of Housing.com is planning to launch a start-up focused on visualization and data analytics.
And Yadav’s new venture has perked up interests from none other than Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Flipkart co-founder Sachin Bansal and Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma. The trio is believed to have made personal investment in the new venture.
While Yadav has not yet disclosed the name of the new venture, speculation is rife that his company will focus on analyzing big data to predict consumer behaviour and provide speedy insights at key decision points.
The data analytics and visualization firm is likely to be used by e-commerce companies on a day-to-day basis.
Rahul Yadav is also scheduled to meet India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, chairman of energy-to-retail conglomerate Reliance Industries (RIL). Later, he had posted on his Facebook page about his new venture as, “All Indian internet companies put together < My next venture”. Getting similar and strong awesome feelings again for an upcoming meeting with Mukesh Ambani.
Interestingly, Softbank, which is a majority stakeholder in Housing.com, is also a major investor in Alibaba, which in turn has invested heavily in PayTm.
Keeping in mind what Rahul is planning for his new startup, Rahul might not be joining Bigg Boss after all and wants to focus on the startup.
