Kunal Bahl | Snapdeal: Kunal Bahl’s 5-yr-old daughter has an entrepreneurial streak, her big business idea

Snapdeal founder Kunal Bahl’s 5-year-old daughter has inherited the entrepreneurial spirit from her father.

During the weekend, the 38-year-old shared a glimpse of the conversation with his toddler daughter – where she enquired about her innovative business plan.

The conversation posted on Twitter showed that Bahl’s daughter posed a series of questions about ‘X’ & ‘Y’ aunties and if they charge money for cakes and cheese platters. After enquiring, she innocently asks Bahl, “Papa, why don’t we also make something and charge people money for it?”

On probing what that ‘something’ could be, the toddler answered, “Makhana (fox nut) Cake.” She further tried to sell the idea to her the puzzled father that these fox nut cakes are a great idea as they will be ‘healthy and tasty’.

The candid business discussion between the father-daughter duo received a lot of love and appreciation on the micro-blogging site.
NASSCOM President Debjani Ghosh also replied to the tweet, and said she likes how the young entrepreneur thinks.

The entrepreneur started his e-commerce company in February 2010 with his school friend Rohit Bansal at a young age of 28.

In September 2019, Bahl, along with his Bansal, turned investor through their VC firm Titan Capital.

With names like Bira 91, Mamaearth, Ola, Razorpay & Urban Clap, the VC backs over 150 companies in India and the US.
