In a candid chat with the Fortune team, he shared that when he was in fifth standard in school, World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) was extremely popular among school students and collecting postcards of your favourite wrestlers became a popular hobby. He saw an opportunity there and started procure new and unique post cards would sell them to other students in school at a premium. This was his first attempt at business and self employment at such a tender age.
How old was Rohit Chadda when he started his first business?
Rohit Chadda was mere 10 years old when he first tried his hand at business. It was a simple trading business where he saw a demand of WWE postcards among his classmates which were hard to find. He seized the opportunity and started procuring such postcards from various marketplaces and started selling them to his classmates at a premium. He even did differential pricing based on the availability of the particular post card. Funnily at the tender age of 10 he was already applying economic fundaments of demand and supply without having a clue of what they actually were.
