Team FactorDaily August 24, 2016

Deepinder Goyal is not new to controversy. Goyal, the co-founder and CEO of restaurant search and ordering platform Zomato does not mince words. Be it his recent tussle with the placement executives at the country’s top engineering colleges or his love for Delhi, he doesn’t hold back his views.

“It does not matter what people outside the company think about us. The fundamentals of the business have to be strong,” said Goyal in an interview with Pankaj Mishra, Editor-In-Chief of FactorDaily. Here’s an edited version of our interview with him.
