Looks like housing.com has been taken hostage by it’s own employees! This is a first for an Indian startup to be hacked by it’s own employees. From what i could gather, they want Rahul Yadav back… what they don’t realise is that neither is he coming back not they would keep their jobs for long. This must be a nightmare for Investors.
We all have read so much about Rahul Yadav… mostly him criticising someone or articles taking about him in the negative light.
I just happened to read an article by Haresh Chawla (India Value Fund) which threw some light from a different angle and was a good lesson for startups as well on what not to do.. over all a good read.
Some quotes from the article
“He would say, “We are growing too fast. I don’t have anyone who can manage the growth.”
“VCs don’t invest hundreds of millions of dollars on a whim. Are you saying all of them made an error of judgement?”
“The real test of the business would be the transition it would have to make from an “outfit” to an organisation.”
