Zomato co-founder Gaurav Gupta quits just months after IPO


Zomato co-founder Gaurav Gupta has quit. This was announced by Gupta himself in an email he sent to Zomato employees. Notably, through the entire process of the Zomato IPO held recently, Gupta was the leading figure. In his email to staff, Gupta said, “I am taking a new turn in my life and will be starting a new chapter, taking a lot from this defining chapter of my life – the last 6 years at Zomato. We have a great team now to take Zomato forward, and it’s time for me to take an alternate path in my journey.”

CEO Deepinder Goyal replied to Gupta’s email and said, “Thank you, GG for everything you have helped Zomato achieve over the last few years. We have seen Zomato through great as well as terrible times together and brought it here today.”

The parting was seemingly not on a bitter note as Gupta thanked everyone for his positive experiences at Zomato. In his email, he said, “I am in love with Zomato and will always be. Came in 6 years back not knowing what this would turn out to be. And what a mind-blowing and amazing journey this has been. Feel proud of where we are today, what we have overcome to get here and feel even more proud of what we will achieve in the future.”
