Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal shared an interesting story about the early days of his startup at the "Vishesh Sampark" program organised by Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.

Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri shared the video of Goyal's speech on X and the video of his speech went viral on social media.
Reflecting on the launch of Zomato in 2008, Goyal humorously recalled his father’s disbelief. "When I told my father about starting Zomato, he asked, 'Jaanta hai tera baap kaun hai?' (Do you know who your father is?)." Goyal explained that this was his father's way of expressing skepticism about his ability to start a business, given their modest background in a small town in Punjab.
The caption of the viral video emphasizes this sentiment, highlighting the generational and cultural mindset. "When I started Zomato in 2008, my father doubted my capability to run a startup because of our simple background," Goyal stated. He acknowledged that such a mindset was prevalent in small towns, where venturing into the startup world was seen as unrealistic.
Goyal credited government initiatives and supportive policies for empowering individuals from small towns to pursue ambitious projects. "This government and its initiatives enabled a small-town boy like me to create something as impactful as Zomato, which now provides employment to millions," Goyal said.
The event was held at Minister Puri’s residence, which gathered innovators, intellectuals, startup leaders, and IT professionals from across the country.
Goyal’s journey from a small-town background to leading a global food delivery giant resonated with many, serving as an inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurs. Goyal recently married model Kreeti Shikha Munoz this year.
His story is not just about building a successful company but also about challenging and changing perceptions, proving that with determination and the right support, anyone can achieve great things regardless of their background.
