Flipkart: The Untold Story of Experiments and Thinking Differently [Mekin on NextBigWhat Radio]

Flipkart has tried and failed at many ambitious projects – more than anybody other startup (even today)!

Right from some of the *ahead-of-its-time* products like Payzippy to Flyte. But then, building a culture of experiments and big bets need different thinking. Which is what helped Flipkart create a flywheel.

Welcome to new episode of NextBigWhat Radio, a series of podcasts where we bring you candid / unfiltered insights from some of the best minds.

Our guest for NextBigWhat Radio’s new episode is Mekin Maheshwari, the founder & CEO of Udhyam Learning Foundation.

Mekin joined Flipkart in 2009 to head technology. After having built a strong technology foundation and a great team, he moved on to running two new businesses before finally heading their HR for his last 2 years at Flipkart.

In this conversation with NextBigWhat’s Ashish, Mekin discuss the early days of Flipkart, hiring culture and lessons from many experiments (some notable failures include Payzippy, Flyte).
