About Myntra

Myntra was founded by Mukesh Bansal, Ashutosh Lawania and Vineet Saxena in 2007. It is an online e-commerce platform for fashion and lifestyle products including clothes, apparels and footwear and operates through an app-only model. Myntra, which specializes in fashion e-commerce, competes directly with Jabong, Yepme, Fashion and You and Limeroad in its category and indirectly with other E-commerce giants like Snapdeal and Amazon.

Myntra initially operated on a B2B model for on-demand personalization of gift items. In 2011 they shifted their focus on fashion and lifestyle products. In 2014, Myntra got acquired by Flipkart to keep players like Amazon and Snapdeal at bay. Founder and CEO, Mukesh Bansal, now heads Flipkart’s commerce platform and the ads business.

Myntra went app-only in May 2015but it seems that they have seen a decline in sales due to that. They recently announced that they clocked an annualized Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) of USD 800 million in January 2016 and are focusing on attaining positive gross profit and touching USD 1 Billion gross profit this year.
