The IIT Kanpur alumnus onboarded Flipkart after his venture Myntra was acquired by the e-commerce giant for Rs 2,000 crore.
The road was not always easy for Mukesh and co-founders Ashutosh Lawania and Vineet Saxena. Myntra started as a corporate gifting site (a crowded space) eight years ago. Mukesh and his team saw an opportunity in lifestyle e-tailing as users were warming up to the idea of buying stuff online. Myntra pivoted and scaled itself into a B2C platform for e-shopping. Last year, the Flipkart deal happened. Myntra raised quite a few eyebrows earlier this year with its decision to go app-only. However, the company seems to be correcting course by reviving its mobile internet site.
