Recently, in an interview with Mashable India, Anupam recalled the time when he led a grand life in his twenties. He revealed that he used to rent out cruise ships and stadiums for parties. He revealed that he started a venture called Strategy.com, and it was worth 40 billion dollars. He was a multi-millionaire. He was quoted as saying:
“Some of us kids got together and started a venture called Strategy.com, just before the dot com boom. And we became worth $40 billion. We were multi-millionaires in our early 20s, at least on paper.”
However, life took a 360-degree turn, and he was left with not a single penny. He revealed that it happened after the meltdown happened in 2000. He also added that relatives critised him for losing all the hard-earned money. He said:
“When we had money, we had a blast. We used to rent out entire football stadiums just for parties. We used to rent out cruise ships. Our company would be shut for a week, and we’d be chilling on three cruise ships. It was a different level. But when the meltdown happened in 2000, jeb mein do kaudi nahi bachi.”
For the unversed, Anupam was one of the judges of the first season of Shark Tank India. He rose to the limelight with other successful entrepreneurs like Ashneer Grover, Peyush Bansal, Ghazal Alagh, Namita Thapar, Vinit Singh and Aman Gupta on the show.
Well, Anupam managed to earn all his money, and he lives a happy life!
