Eighteen months ago, we brought you the story of CapitalVia and how its founder & CEO – Rohit Gadia built a 500+ employee organization with a core team of just 6. As a further testament to this breakneck speed of growth, CapitalVia was ranked 34th in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 India 2013, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in India. Rankings are based on revenue growth over a 3-year period, during which CapitalVia grew 159%. CapitalVia Global Research was established in 2008, and is a pure-play financial market research consulting company, providing real-time recommendations for traders in financial markets for intra-day and short-term deals.
This announcement was made at an award ceremony on October 18, where T. K. Kurien, CEO of Wipro Technologies, was the chief guest. This is the second consecutive year that CapitalVia has hit the top 50, ranking 24th in 2012. CapitalVia has now qualified for the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific Program and will compete with the best across the region.
At just 28 years of age, Rohit Gadia has really set a strong example for others to follow. The initial idea for CapitalVia came from his student days. As shared with YS, “Initially I used to pay my bills through my credit card but soon I started helping my friends to pay their bills and later on they used to pay back by cash. A wonderful thought came to me and then I thought to leverage the 45 days worth of interest-free period which was extended by my credit card companies. I used the cash money to invest in stocks and earned profit from it and managed to return the loan amount within the designated time frame.” Post initial success in the stock market, Rohit started advising his friends and ultimately, decided to take this financial expertise to the next level, through CapitalVia.
