Nagori joined Flipkart aged 24, after a failed startup. His rise has been meteoric. A defining moment came when the Bansals trusted him with executing the pivot to the marketplace model.

Now Nagori is responsible for matching supply with demand: “If we have a lot of college kids, do we have the right supply of graphic tees?”
