What happens when two Manchester United fans meet? They probably talk of the good old days. But what if they are cricket fanatics and engineers and MBAs to boot? Sheth and Jain, who fit the description above, decided to set up a fantasy sports platform. In 2008, they founded Dream11, which has 60 million plus users today. In April, it became the first gaming unicorn in India, with backing from investors such as Kalaari Capital, Multiples Equity, Tencent, and Steadview Capital Management. With M.S. Dhoni as brand ambassador, Dream11 is set to score big in the coming days.
