In 2020, I hosted a fire side chat with Mukesh Bansal, Co-Founder, Myntra and CureFit about brief history of Myntra, CureFit and his insights from building an iconic indian startup as part of The Red Bricks Summit by IIM Ahmedabad

Mukesh is a technology entrepreneur with almost two decades of experience working with high tech consumer internet companies. After B.Tech in Computer Science from IIT Kanpur and working across engineering, product management, and leadership roles for four different early-stage tech startups in the Bay Area, he founded Myntra in 2007 which became India's largest online fashion retailer.

Mukesh co-founded Cure.fit in April 2016. Since then, the company has raised a total of $400 million of funding and acquired Cult, 1000Yoga, and Fitness First. Bansal, through Cure.fit, has been instrumental in changing the landscape of India's health and fitness industry.
