Good Morning,

When Sachin Bansal co-founded an online bookstore called Flipkart in October 2007, little did he know that he would one day become one of the most-watched startup founders of India. 

Ten years into the Flipkart journey, Sachin formally announced his exit from the ecommerce giant in 2018 after the deal with Walmart. All eyes were on Sachin’s next endeavour.

Over the years, BAC Acquisitions (BACQ), which Sachin co-founded with IIT Delhi batchmate Ankit Agarwal, has been in the media spotlight for its bets on startups such as electric vehicle companies Bounce and Vogo Automotive, apart from merchant credit platform Kissht and consumer electronics company, boAt Lifestyle, which has also filed its DRHP for a public listing this year.

Now, as Navi Technologies, the holding company for BACQ, prepares for its Rs 3,350 crore IPO, all eyes are once again on the prolific investor and the OG of India’s startup ecosystem.
