After a stint of nearly 10 years since its inception in 2000, Sachin Bhatia, Co-founder, MakeMyTrip, has decided to move on. He is starting his own venture. However, he will continue with the company for at least a month and will also continue to be a shareholder in the company and be involved strategically.

Bhatia declined to divulge any details regarding his new venture. On his decision to move on, Bhatia told exchange4media, “It has been a very good experience at MakeMyTrip. There has been a lot of learning for me in the last 10 years. It has been a long innings and with the company now mature and profitable, I felt it was the right time to move on and venture into something else.”

Till 2008, Bhatia had headed marketing for MakeMyTrip and has been instrumental in building the company as one of the top online travel brands in India as well as among NRIs in the US. He was earlier with Grey Advertising in Delhi and Mumbai. He had managed the marketing initiatives of AMF Bowling Inc., with a focus on India and South Asia, before founding MakeMyTrip.
