Bootstrapped startups don’t make it big. Atleast not in terms of revenue.
That’s what startup ecosystem has mostly been about. But then, there are entrepreneurs who push the limits and really go big (and stay hungry).
Meet Nithin Kamath, the founder of Zerodha at UnPluggd.
Last FY, Zerodha touched 225+ crores in revenue (with a profitability of around Rs. 90 crores). Total bootstrapped !
Nithin had been a stock trader for over a decade before founding Zerodha in 2010, India’s first discount brokerage, widely credited as being a disruptive force in the Indian broking industry. Today, Zerodha serves 3 + lakh clients who generate trading turnovers of over $2 billion daily.
