November 27, 2014
Not that we have a dearth of success stories, but now and then there are some stories worth knowing. One such story is of Son. The renowned richest man in Japan, he is the founder of Softbank and an aggressive investor. Having funded the Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, buying the American mobile carrier Sprint and now having funded Snapdeal (http://trak.in/tags/business/2014/10/17/snapdeal-650m-funding-softbank-valuation-2b/), he seems to be eyeing the Indian e- industry closely. After having invested in Snapdeal, Mr Son exclaimed, "I strongly believe that Snapdeal has the potential to be like the Alibaba of India." With 3 huge investments (Snapdeal, Ola & Scoopwhoop) in a matter of a single month in India, Softbank has created a flutter amongst the tech and ecommerce space in India. And this investment spree is not going to end anytime soon, as they have pledged to invest a whopping $10 Billion in India.
