Rahul Yadav, who’d earlier claimed that his new startup would be unlike anything that the Indian industry had ever seen, and had said that it would be 10x bigger than any other internet company, has said that his new startup idea is not working out.
RoomLion cofounder Ashish Agrawal has accused Housing.com and Rahul Yadav of copying their 360 degree virtual tours product during acquisition discussions in March 2014.
Housing employees hadn’t received the shares that Yadav had promised them. And now it turns out that they might not receive the shares at all – at least not in the traditional sense. On 12th January, the company announced in an email to the staff that they would get their share of Yadav’s gift in the form of phantom stock units.
Rahul Yadav has found another high profile backer for his new startup Intelligent Interfaces – it’s Indian cricket legend Yuvraj Singh. “Proud to back Rahul Yadav and Intelligent Interfaces (ii) in helping the Government govern 100x better with the help of technology. Get ready for the (r)evolution!”, posted Yuvraj on Facebook.
Rahul Yadav’s much vaunted startup is finally beginning to take shape. After being fired from the Housing CEO post, Yadav had taken to social media and announced that his startup would be “10x more than all Indian internet companies put together”. He’d then gone on to tantalizingly reveal bits and pieces about the details of his new venture. It had emerged then that the company would be in the data analytics space and would be called Intellignent Interfaces.
After struggling to find love for months, if not his startup, Rahul Yadav has his love story sorted.
Rahul Yadav, the erstwhile CEO of Housing.com, has come out in support of the beleaguered TinyOwl cofounders. The cofounding team of TinyOwl has been under fire over its recent layoffs, and one cofounder was held hostage in its Pune office for over 2 days by irate employees. However, Rahul Yadav, who’s no stranger to controversy himself, had words of encouragement for the TinyOwl team.
If you thought all those hours playing CS or DOTA in college were a waste, think again. They might just land you a role at Rahul Yadav’s new startup.
Yadav, whose new venture is thought be to associated in the data analytics space, has announced a codename for his latest effort: “Intelligent Interfaces (ii)”. According to his facebook update, the new company will combine Artificial Intelligence, Design and Maths to create next-gen Interfaces.
After his ignominious exit from Housing.com, Rahul Yadav had promised to come back bigger and stronger than before. He’d claimed that his startup would be 10x bigger than housing, and perhaps bigger than “all Indian internet companies put together.” He’s finally revealed what his grand plans are.
First came the brashness. Then came the much-publicized fight with his board members. And finally, it’s LSD. The Steve Jobs trifecta is complete, and the legend of Rahul Yadav is born.
