Even after that, Supam remained associated with Brainvisa till 2009. Now he was preparing to start a new venture. While working at Brain Visa, he also became a father to a baby girl. During his business trips to Europe and America, he brought a variety of toys and baby care products for his daughter. The quality of these products can be trusted. But many of these products were not available locally. While searching for these products for her daughter, he realized that there is a huge demand for them in the domestic market, started researching the demand for both domestic and foreign products, and found that the baby care products business in India is worth Rs 50,000 crore. Out of which 95% were offline.
Meanwhile, the demand for baby care products and the spending power of the people has increased a lot. But it was not easy to make good quality products available to the general public. Now that they had a business model in place, they wanted to be a platform that bridges the gap between quality products and Indian parents.
Supam along with his friend Amitav Sah launched FirstCry.com in the year 2010. He raised seed funding of 2.5 crores from his savings.
Today FirstCry has more than 300 outlets in more than 100 cities in India. The company has more than 1200 employees. Today it is the largest online store for kids-related goods in India. FirstCry received the “Most Popular Online Site” award in the year 2013.
