Rahul Yadav is not one to stay out of the limelight for too long. Barely a fortnight after his dramatic ouster from Housing.com, and an intervening period when he tried to look for a girlfriend on Facebook, Rahul is back to doing what he does best. He’s announced a startup that will be bigger and better than Housing.com.
In a facebook post, Rahul Yadav announced his new venture was 30 days away, and claimed that it would be 10x of the previous formula. Housing.com’s matra, quite famously, was 10x, in which the company tried to exponentially improve the state of real estate in India.
It is still unclear if this startup was conceived during his final few months with Housing.com, when his exit was being widely speculated, or it was arrived at post his dismissal. The quick nature of the announcement suggests that this startup was being planned and conceptualized while he was still Housing CEO.
Yadav had been inundated with messages of support following his removal as CEO, and entrepreneurs both big and small had expressed an interest in working with the 26 year old.
While there are no indications yet regarding what this startup could be, knowing Rahul Yadav, it’s quite likely that it will be big – and controversial.
