CarDekho has opened up the car sales market multifold. FAU-G is trying to create a world class gaming experience on your smartphone or tablet. Yes, given the success rates of startups, you’re taking the risk of no value getting created for the brand at all after all, but that’s the challenge. In the end, you’ve at least partnered or helped someone on their way and who dreamed of doing something big.”
