How did the idea for Quikr come about?
In 2007, Pranay was working on a gaming project in America, for which he needed a team of some people, for this he took the help of the American online site craigslist. He thought that how much a site like craigslist has helped him, so why not create such a site for India as well.
He wanted to create a site for Indian people where people can buy locally offline by viewing stuff online, so he created a classified-type website. His site became very popular in no time and today lakhs of people are taking advantage of this service every day.
