Co-founder & CEO,
Phanindra Sama is the Co-founder and CEO of redBus, India’s largest bus tickets aggregator. The 28-year-old entrepreneur has led the company to achieve this feat in just two years of operations. Sama worked with Texas Instruments before he took up the redBus venture. Like most retail start-ups, redBus was born out of a market need. redBus set out to equip customers with the power of information and enable them to transact using the Web. Today, a customer can buy a bus ticket through an SMS, a call center, or the Web. The customer can choose to get a ticket home delivered or get it at a neighborhood kirana store. The company’s distribution network spans across 75,000+ outlets in the country. Sama is a graduate with honors from Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani.
