Raghav Bahl, Founder
Raghav Bahl is a serial entrepreneur and investor, with several successful exits to his credit. Besides founding and scaling Network 18, India’s leading media group. Raghav has also seeded moneycontrol.com, bookmyshow.com, firstpost.com, yatra.com, among others.
Raghav started making television news capsules while still reading Economics at St. Stephen’s. After an MBA at FMS Delhi, Raghav's career followed an obvious trajectory, beginning as a Management Consultant at AF Ferguson followed by a stint at Amex. But news was a natural home for him, and he quit the cushy comforts of international banking and went on to set up Network 18, among India’s top media houses. Raghav has also managed long and successful partnerships with some of the world’s leading media brands: CNBC, Viacom, BBC, Star TV, A&E, Time Warner, Forbes.
As the audience is increasingly shifting out of television and into digital media, Raghav is now focused on scaling a cutting-edge digital media business, straddling content, tech and distribution.
