Empowering India's SMEs | Instamojo
‘Jo bhi karunga, usme khush rahunga, kidhar bhi mein kaam karu, I want to be happy.’
It’s amazing when we are able to bring together our careers & our passions. This is exactly what I thought of when talking to Akash Gehani of Instamojo. His passion for business is infectious & shines through.
This is the story of an intelligent boy who grew up in the suburbs of Mumbai with one mantra- ‘never take yourself seriously’.
But when it came to starting a business, Akash was very serious about helping small and micro businesses to grow and help them trust the internet. Instamojo started with Payment Links – a simple URL that one can copy and paste anywhere on the internet and receive payments online via any payment mode.
Today Instamojo has 3 Million+ payment links, 50,000+ online stores and a 5 million+ monthly reach.
