“Goodbye from a Zhopper”
Posted On: 03-09-2013 01:01:00 AM

Bangalore-based ZopNow sells a varied range of products including groceries, beverages, snacks, health foods, cleaning supplies, electrical equipment, detergents, soaps, shampoos, cosmetics etc . In July last year, the company had raised an undisclosed amount in its first round of funding from Accel Partners, Qualcomm Ventures and media group Bennett Coleman & Co. Now, BK Birla, co-founder of ZopNow Retail Pvt. Ltd, which runs online hypermarket ZopNow.com, has been ousted from the company (wrongly as he claims) and has announced the same via a blog post.

In the blog post, titled ‘Goodbye from a Zhopper’, Birla mentioned that he is not a quitter and his ousting from the company was a planned move. “Over the past two years I have been building a brand and company but I guess I have now run out of time now. Led by my dear friend Bhukhri/Bhukesh, I have been asked to step down. A sad day indeed for me, not because I have been ousted from a company I built, but the way it was plotted and planned. I agree I was outsmarted by you dear friend Bhukhri/Bhukesh. Just letting everybody know that I am not a quitter, never a quitter and I have not decided to quit,” Birla wrote in the post.

Birla had co-founded ZopNow along Mukesh Singh in September 2011. Prior to setting up ZopNow Birla was the CTO of Asklaila,. He had earlier worked at companies like Amazon, Infosys, Arcot and Potluck Restaurant, and holds a B Tech degree in computer science from IIT Kanpur.
