1. THE SAFARIST
Meet Tanmay Keshav and Maulik Desai, who took them together in their love of nature, wildlife, and travel. We found many National Parks lacked the pure knowledge enthusiastic ‘safarists’ like them wanted during their journeys. They wanted to create a website in 2013 that would put together travelers like them to share memories, destinations, observations, and even costs. The site was designed in such a way that its viewers could see the goals, the unique features, and create a species checklist. The lack of information and awareness makes it less travelable for specific places and destinations. Their vision is to create an integral database of all these locations.

There have been tough days, but he has been working hard. Chunky cheek’s seven-member team faces the pressure of the fast-growing business, but they look to expand and hire soon.
The names behind this Blog are Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal. Starting as a deals website in 2010, Snapdeal established its online presence by September 2011.

As one of the fastest-growing firms, Snapdeal had its fair share of hiccups, but they were able to get back on their feet, take good chances, meet customer expectations, and push forward. Moving forward and moving fast is a principle it abides by, ensuring experimentation is conducted on a smaller scale. They are the first online marketplace in India, which helps others to set up shop. Their insistence on consumer service will be something to draw away from the way they molded this business.

Taxiforsure started with 25 cab operators in Bangalore and 15 in Delhi in 2011, with Radhakrishna and Raghunandan.
