About Rahul Yadav
Rahul Yadav, Co-Founder and CEO Housing.com, is a maverick visionary who along with a few of his friends from IIT-B are credited with building one of India’s largest and most innovative real estate search platform Housing.com. The difficulty in searching for accommodations in a city like Mumbai spurred them on to build this unique platform that lists properties submitted by users, either brokers or owners, on an interactive map.
Rahul spotted and then exploited a huge opportunity in the real estate search portal, which has made Housing.com one of the largest in that bracket. Rahul largely spends time and energy to ensure that his business stays ahead of the trends.
His primary focus is towards the development and execution of the overall strategy that will foster the growth of the company.
He complete attention to detail has helped make their venture a huge success. Rahul’s job responsibility involves close interaction with investors of the company towards fulfilling the company’s vision.
Not many know that Rahul, who hails from Alwar in Rajasthan topped the state in physics-chemistry-math in his 12th standard board exams, based on which he got a 75 percent scholarship for preparing for IIT-JEE.
While he was selected to be the class representative in his second year at IIT Bombay, he later, went on to become the secretary of its student association.
The reason that gave birth to this massive business makes for an interesting read. At IIT, as part of his election manifesto, he had to create a question bank from old exam paper; this is what ignited the technopreneurial bug and helped him build the popular Exambaba.com – a website that would carry scans of exam papers of previous years.
That was just the beginning of his genius entrepreneurial journey, Rahul then, went ahead for a brief internship in Israel and he returned to build apps for Google Chrome before he founded Housing.com.
“If something doesn’t exist, build it yourself, and if it doesn’t work, move on,” an adage Rahul firmly lives by.
