Big Idea

Dealshare appeals to the bargain hunter in every Indian’s heart

Jaipur-based start-up has built a fast-growing business around our love for finding a good deal and sharing it with loved ones 

From L to R: Rajat Shikhar, founder and chief product officer; Sankar Bora, founder and chief operating officer; Sourjyendu Medda, founder and chief business officer and chief financial officer; Vineet Rao, founder and chief executive officer

Everyone loves a good deal. There have been sightings even of the British royals browsing through discount-racks (though that may never be shown in The Crown). Therefore, it seems like common sense to bring all the best deals on a single platform, particularly in a price-sensitive market like India where “last price?” can be declared a national catchphrase. There are various such platforms too, and they come in many formats—ones that arrange for cashbacks on purchase, ones that collate offers/discounts and ones that put together coupons from various brands. In this crowd, Jaipur-based Dealshare stands out.
