"This Time With 100x; Rahul Yadav Announces Plan To Launch Venture In A Month"

Photo Credit :

Rahul Yadav, the ex-CEO, of Housing.com, announced on Facebook that he will be back with his new venture in a month. Sources said the new venture could be in the real estate sector. While it is still too early to know who are his investors  this time, the innate brilliance of Yadav cannot be undermined but this time around, investors are sure to want to know how he would scale it, build his team, and do more due-diligence around it. In 2012, Yadav, along with his batchmates from IIT, co-founded Housing.com. Investors had bet big on it and pumped in $121 million in four rounds.

Meanwhile Yadav posted on his FB profile these words:

"If the path is smooth, dig your own holes. If no challenges, create them on your own.'

Just for the sake of practice. Just to push yourself to the extreme. Just to become stronger. Just to make things interesting. Just to make things fun.

I'll be back...this time with 100x.... [10x of last formula (10x)]

30 days to go.

Is the world ready?"    



Yadav was sacked by the Housing.com board on July 1 for his behaviour with investors and media. “The board believes his behaviour is not befitting of a CEO and is detrimental to the company, known for its innovative approach to product development, market expansion and brand building,” the company had said.

Last week, Housing.com appointed Rishabh Gupta as the interim CEO of the realty portal. Search for an interim chief executive is underway.
