After debuting in the Forbes India rich list, Flipkart’s co-founders Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal, have now made their way to TIME’s annual list of 100 most influential people in the world in its ‘2016 TIME 100 list’.
TIME in their profile about Sachin and Binny wrote, “Binny and Sachin do have modest lifestyles, by billionaire standards, but they’re also nimble tacticians and hardheaded realists, and they dream big.”
The Flipkart’s bansals have been included under the ‘Titan’ section of the list, a group that includes Yuri Milner, Pope Francis, Stephen Curry, Pricilla Chan, Mark Zuckerberg, Dwayne Johnson, Eli Broad, Kathleen Kenned, Wang Jianlin, Sundar Pichai, Katie Ledecky, Tim Cook, and Mohammed bin Nayef.
Sachin and Binny Bansal said, “We are humbled and honored to feature in this list. This is truly a recognition of the Indian internet ecosystem and its role in using technology to solve local problems that is enabling Indians to lead a better life. This acknowledgment validates that the path we have chosen of creating a world-class Indian internet company that delivers quality products and reliable service at an affordable price to millions of families across India. It reinforces our resolve to fast track Flipkart’s mission of transforming commerce in India through technology.”
