How Lee Fixel, Flipkart’s godfather in New York, changed India’s start-up ecosystem – Livemint

Depending on the final details, Fixel could make more than $3.5 billion on an investment of less than $1 billion, and still retain a 4-5% stake in Flipkart. That’s a stunning return by any measure. For the exit-starved Indian market, it’s almost beyond belief.
