Food ordering app Zomato’s co-founder Mohit Gupta, who resigned today, in a farewell note to employees asked them to “be relentless, keep learning, and build an organisation that is a role model for the rest of the world.”
Mr Gupta said he will remain an investor.
A large part of the farewell letter is a thank-you message for the other founder and chief executive Deepinder Goyal, who Mr Gupta said is “completely capable of leading the business into a bright future”.
“Four and a half years ago I joined Deepi [Deepinder Goyal] and this band of crazies trying to build the best food tech company in the country, I dare say the world. In this period, we brought our food delivery business back from the brink, survived crazy competition, the pandemic, and became a large and profitable business (as unlikely as it seemed at the beginning),” Mr Gupta wrote in his farewell note.
“The journey to build a world class tech business out of India, for India (and then maybe the world) is still on, just 1 per cent done. In this journey, it has been my pride and privilege to see Deepi, Akshant, Akriti, and the entire team grow leaps and bounds to become champions. You took me along and helped me grow immensely as well; for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Mr Gupta wrote.
“Everyone – please continue shining, and making products that India loves using. You are all so brilliant in so many ways, in the hands of a very capable leadership team. I am looking forward to seeing you continuing to build on everything we have learnt over the years. Be relentless, keep learning, and build an organisation that is a role model for the rest of the world. I remain a long only investor in Zomato. Goodbye and godspeed,” he wrote and signed off.
