Ixigo: Travelling the distance

By Shailesh Lakhani

“It all makes sense in hindsight”

Aloke said to me last week, reflecting on the crazy, winding journey to becoming a public company. We have known the dynamic duo Aloke and Rajnish for 16 years, and to see them go public today is a career highlight. It is probably impossible to find someone who doesn’t like these two and it is impossible to not be inspired by their journey.

We tried to work together in 2008, but the stars didn’t align. We all grew up and in 2016, thankfully we were granted a berth to lead ixigo’s Series B financing. We partnered with them as we had seen the team demonstrate resilience, world-class product building, and was now benefiting from the Jio effect of the internet spreading to the length and breadth of Bharat.



We work side by side with founders to help them realise their ambitions. We distil our learnings and offer it to founders from advice and support to our community-based programs such as Surge, Spark, Build, Pathfinders and Guild.
