The Economic Times
Brijesh Agarwal, Co-founder and Director, IndiaMART and Tolexo.com- I come from a trading family background. Back in 1995, when I was in college in Lucknow, we heard about the Internet that made it so much easier and convenient to find information. So when my brother returned from the US, we decided to start a business. Our family was in fertilisers business, and seeing how difficult it was for businesses to find customers for their products, we set up a platform for buyers from abroad to buy from India.
