The 21-year-old Building India’s Largest Hotel Network
四年後，21歲的阿加委爾先生已經成為Oyo Rooms的創始人兼首席執行官。Oyo Rooms是一含括2,200家飯店的社群，橫跨印度100座城市。月收入高達350萬美金(230萬英鎊)，並有1,500名員工。這家公司主要與印度非大品牌旅館進行合作，協助改善設施並對職員進行訓練﹑建立他們自己的品牌，並從各旅館的營收中抽成。
One night, 18-year-old Ritesh Agarwal was checking into a hotel, and he found himself in a situation he had already experienced several times while traveling in India. “The receptionist was sleeping,” he says. “Sockets did not work in the room, mattresses were torn apart, the bathroom was leaking, and at the end they wouldn’t let me pay by card.”
Four years later, at the age of 21, Mr Agarwal is now the founder and chief executive of Oyo Rooms – a network of 2,200 hotels operating in 100 cities across India – with monthly revenues of $3.5m (£2.3m) and 1,500 employees. The firm works with unbranded hotels to improve their facilities and train staff, rebrands them with its own name, and from then on takes a percentage of the hotel’s revenues.
“Would you get involved in a fight?” “It would depend on the situation.”
