Vijay Shekhar Sharma is an Indian entrepreneur and founder of Paytm. Sharma was born in Aligarh, UP in a modest family.
Paytm’s current value is a little over $3 billion in the market in 2016, a dream dreamt when he was struggling to make ends meet with Rs 10 in pocket. But he tasted victory the hard way. Nothing came easy for him.
He has also given 4% of his equity to the team, which in current value terms is about $120 million
