The most talked about CEO from the Indian startup ecosystem, Rahul Yadav, was fired from the Housing board yesterday. Rahul, who founded Housing along with 11 other co-founders, has become one of the most talked startup celebrity in the country.
The IIT Bombay dropout, known for his erratic behaviour and notorious acts, has given everyone enough to talk about in the past few months with his antics.
Rahul, who hails from Alwar, a small town in Rajasthan, was academically average till his tenth standard, topped Rajasthan in PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Maths) in his 12th boards and then managed to get a 75% scholarship for IIT-JEE preparations. This guy then went to one of the most prestigious colleges of India i.e. IIT Bombay and this was the place where his journey as a startup founder started.
He became the class representative in his second year and then secretary of the students association. He was supposed to create a question bank from old exam papers and this is when he was bitten by the startup bug and he launched Exambaba.com
Exambaba became quite popular among students and was even made the official IIT-B Archive before it was shut down.
