Zomato was put in place in the year 2008, and since then it certainly has become a sensation in today’s time. It wraps more than 331,200 restaurants in around 19 countries. It was begun with the name Foodiebay.com, and in just two years’ time, it became the most promising companies in India and moved on to get the international gratitude. Pankaj Chaddah and Deepinder Goyal are the founders of Zomato who always sought to do something different.

Housing.com is a real estate search engine which was co-founded by twelve IIT-B graduates. This bunch of people wanted to bring transparency to the real-estate domain. Within a shorter time period, it has acquired massive popularity. It was launched just two years back and regardless of the obstacles, Housing.com emerged out with a great repute.
Flipkart is no more an unknown company. The company managed to accomplish a gigantic hit in the Indian online market. The company was started by Sachin and Binny Bansal, the IIT-D alumni. They had worked with Amazon earlier, and so thought of bringing a similar model into the Indian market. They began by selling books in the year 2007 and now everything is available on this marketing platform. The company even managed to acquire Myntra for around INR 2000 crores.
4. Ola Cabs
No one would have ever thought that cab booking can be that easy and simple. The credit goes to the Ola Cabs. Moreover, a cab travel now costs even less than an auto-rickshaw travel. Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati are the founders of Ola Cabs. They were the IIT-B graduates who worked with the MNCs before making up their minds to become entrepreneurs.
This idea gained grounds when on a weekend trip, Bhavish had a really bad experience travelling in a rented car. He wanted to bring something better for the consumers and thus in October 2015, Ola Cabs became one of the most valued start-ups in India.
5. Make My Trip
Make My Trip was an idea of Deep Kalra, an IIM Ahmedabad alumnus. It without any question has transformed the travel industry immensely over the period of years. It was initially put forward in the US market in the year 2000 with the needs of NRIs in mind for their Indo-American trips. It was in 2005 that it further spread its roots in India and began with just the flight tickets. Today, the company has managed to gain worldwide recognition.
