Located in 447-C, 12th main, Koramangala, the bungalow is located in a leafy lane of a residential suburb that is now inundated with scores of restaurants, restro-bars and fitness centres.
The bungalow is owned by a retired government employee SM Fathaulla. Despite the opposition of his wife to renting the first floor to a start-up founded by the 20-somethings Sachin and Binny Bansal.
The company soon moved in and started its book delivery business. Then came its first customer V V K Chandra and the first employee Ambur Iyyappa who joined the start-up for a meager salary of Rs 8,000. The founders were only looking for someone who knew some English and some computers basic knowledge.
The old office continued to be the venue for think meets, huddles and late night meetings. The office, however, eventually downed the shutters in March 2018 when the new office of Flipkart-One Flipkart-came up in Bengaluru's Embassy Tech Village.
