Kapur's refreshing enthusiasm for news reflects in her latest venture, Quintillion Media, a digital media company she co-founded with her husband Raghav Bahl, founder and former managing director of Network18. In just three years, The Quint, her digital news platform, has solidified its presence among India’s mainstream news websites. The numbers speak volumes: In the past year, the platform has witnessed 102% growth in page views, along with a 63% rise in the number of registered users. The Quint has a readership of over 40 million and its video viewership stands at 55 million a month. Besides building her company, Kapur has been a strategic investor (through Quintillion Media) in other digital media platforms such as The News Minute, SHEROES, and Youth Ki Awaaz. “For the new-age digital media businesses we have to innovate with strategies for sale, while keeping the cost under control,” says Kapur
