Hari Menon, the CEO & Co-Founder of BigBasket.com, is not new to entrepreneurship. Back in 1998, he was part of the team which started India’s first e-commerce venture called Fabmall. From then to now, e-commerce has changed a lot.
By 2007, the team had ventured into offline retail as well. After selling the chain of over 200 stores to Aditya Birla Group in 2006, he took a break from entrepreneurship to join the Manipal Group. Now he is back in the game with BigBasket.com, a fast growing online grocery store. The e-commerce portal opened its first warehouse in Bangalore earlier this year and plans to do the same in other cities soon. A plan to expand to other cities is on the cards.
In this conversation he talks about his journey through the dot com bubble and the early startup rat race to how BigBasket.com has scaled over the years.
