About Story

A serial entrepreneur and founder of the Smile Group, Bahl has launched a string of e-commerce ventures in India over the past two years, such as Dealsandyou, Fashionandyou, Freecultr, Zoomtra, HealthPA and Juvalia & You. He is also part of a global incubator called Springstar, which soft-launches entrepreneurs. Smile Group seems to be a perfect platform for entrepreneurship and quite a few Smile employees have actually left their jobs to kick-start their maiden ventures, thanks to the group’s support and encouragement. Although the e-commerce industry witnessed a few setbacks in recent times, the group managed to raise around $65 million across its four online properties in 2011 and has already raised $22 million from ru-Net Holdings (one of the largest Internet and technology investors in Russia) for two group companies this year.

Bahl also founded Quasar, one of India’s oldest media buying agencies, which he sold to WPP, and Tyroo, an ad network, in which Yahoo picked up a stake
