We are thrilled to share that Mr. Ratan Tata has recently invested in Ola, in his personal capacity. While I am personally very excited about this, as a company we can now learn from the rich experience of one of the finest business leaders of our times.
Mr. Tata’s inclination towards transportation as a segment with the way he steered Tata Motors under his leadership at the group level is well known. Also, the Tatas at a group level and Mr. Ratan Tata himself, have built businesses that have focused on immense social impact and value creation. With Ola’s vision to impact mobility and transportation in India by creating a valuable citizen utility and a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem, we look forward to seeking inspiration and learning from this association. It is an honour as well as a huge endorsement for us and reflects Ola’s commitment towards the future of mobility in India.
While we have grown to serve millions of customers in 100+ cities with over 200,000 driver entrepreneurs on our platform in a span of just 4 years since inception, we definitely have a long way to go in revolutionising how an India of over a billion people will move around in cities.
