Description

Ever wondered why global investors are willing to write million-dollar cheques to young and inexperienced entrepreneurs? Why companies are no longer judged on their ability to make profits? Why the valuation of a start-up can dwarf that of its well-established counterpart? Is it a bubble? Or have the rules of the game changed? Can these hyper-funde...d, technology driven companies become global superpowers? Or is it an unsustainable phenomenon? The Golden Tap gives you the answers. In a remarkably honest, no holds barred account, Kashyap – himself a serial entrepreneur – demystifies the technology ecosystem that exists in India today. From the origins of Amazon and Google, to the remarkable growth of Flipkart and Ola, he meticulously plots and chronicles a connected global sequence of events. Set in this background, he recounts his personal roller coaster of a life. A story filled with ambition, greed, vanity, fear, and success that all young entrepreneurs can relate to. Is this the business model of the future? Or merely a game of poker played by master investors? The answers pour out of The Golden Tap.
