In this edition of Founder Thesis, Akshay Datt speaks with Rajiv Vij, a person who became the Czar of rented cars in India. Rajiv is currently the Chairman and Managing Director of Carzonrent.
An alumnus of FMS Delhi, Rajiv started his career at Hindustan Motors which gave him exposure to the taxi business at that time and at ITC’s International Travel House allowed him to interact with the best and the biggest car-rental brands in the world.
Building on this experience, he started Carzonrent in 2000, with a seed capital of 29 lakh. And today, through numerous pivots, it is one of the leading personal ground transportation service providers with a network present in more than 75 cities in India and has recently ventured into sustainable mobility solutions with Plug Mobility.
Tune in to this episode to hear Rajiv speak about his inspirational journey and how with Carzonrent he attempts to streamline the largely unorganized personal ground transportation industry in India.
