‘Grind in your 20s… Hustle in your 30s… Retire in your 40s.’ Sounds like a perfect plan, right!

Founder Thesis brings you the journey of Amit Gupta, the mind behind India’s first unicorn InMobi, who in his current avatar is heading Yulu, the country’s leading shared micro-mobility service provider.

In a candid conversation with Akshay Datt, Amit harks back to his earlier days, when he aspired to start his venture at 30 and retire by 40. However, by the time he started approaching 40, he wanted to give back to society. In 2017 he founded Yulu, an IoT-based bicycle-sharing platform that rents out e-bikes for first-mile, last-mile, and short distance commutes. The mission was to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality in urban cities.

Tune in to this episode to hear Amit speak about how Yulu is revolutionizing the way people commute by providing smart, shared, and sustainable mobility solutions.
