Ashish Goel, the 39-year-old CEO and co-founder of the Indian furniture brand Urban Ladder, has had an eclectic career trajectory. The Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore graduate may have started his work-life somewhat predictably as a strategic business consultant with McKinsey & Co., but his next stint was selling comic books and reviving the storied children’s content brand Amar Chitra Katha. His next venture saw him selling beds, sofas and dining tables—creating, with co-founder Rajiv Srivatsa, a company that ushered in an era of smart, affordable furniture with reliable customer service in India, and was reportedly valued at over ₹ 776 crore during its latest investment round earlier this year.
