Sanjeev Bikhchandani

"What are the characteristics of a business that we choose to enter? One, the opportunity must be large, and therefore the business potential is scalable. Two, we wish to enter the business early. Three, we should be able to create IP. Four, the market structure should be such that the market power resides with us. Five, we should have the capability and strength to go after the business. Six, we like B2C businesses, because we are good at creating consumer brands, and we like to run a business-to-business salesforce. Seven, the business should have a high operating leverage; in Naukri, for example, close to 90 per cent of the incremental revenue goes to the bottomline. And eight, our primary focus is India; and overseas markets where there is a large Indian population, such as the Middle East."
