Nithin Kamath

Founder and CEO, Zerodha

Nithin bootstrapped and founded Zerodha in 2010 to overcome the hurdles he faced during his decade-long stint as a trader. Over the last decade, Zerodha has changed the landscape of the Indian broking industry. With over 7 million clients and contributing to over 15% of the exchange retail trading volumes, Zerodha is the largest stock broker in India today. A tech-first company now, Zerodha offers innovative trading and investing solutions that appeal to a wide audience in a bid to reach those sections of society that have stayed away from the capital market so far. Nithin also started Rainmatter, an R&D fintech incubator and fund that has partnered with some of the best investment-tech startups in India. Rainmatter is focused on creating an ecosystem for spurring innovation in the financial technology industry in India. More recently, Nithin has also set up the Rainmatter Climate Foundation — an Indian climate fund providing funding to startups and grassroots organizations working on solutions to mitigate climate change. Outside of work, Nithin enjoys spending time with his family, playing the guitar, poker, basketball, and swimming.
