“Nitin Savara loves Zomato, and as much as I and Akshant (Goyal - CFO), tried to retain him with us for the last few weeks it didn’t work because Nitin is very excited about what he wants to build and there’s no one stopping him:),” shared Deepinder Goyal, CEO, Zomato on its Slack channel addressing to the company’s employee.

 

Goyal also mentioned that he would be the last person to stop anyone from starting up on their own. “We need more entrepreneurs in our country, not less,” he added.
