Vijay Shekhar Sharma, founder of Paytm, yesterday did an AMA on Reddit, and was flooded with questions about Paytm, startups, Jack Ma, and entrepreneurs.
Here is a snippet of some of the interesting questions that he replied to.
Question: Is there any special significance of the number (197)?
Vijay: I started One97 as people search in 2001. That time one use to call BSNL / MTNL helpline on 197 to ask for phone number. So One97.
Question: When do you expect to turn a profit?
Vijay: We earned some profit in last 2 weeks. That said, profit is not short term aim, dominance is. So may be after next year.
