Nithin, before founding Zerodha in 2010, had been a professional trader for over a decade. As a retail trader, he was familiar with the subtle, and not so subtle nuances and pitfalls of the Indian broking industry. Unable to find change elsewhere, he embarked on his quest of building a brokerage that truly cared and catered to the needs of the Indian retail —something that would soon change the landscape of Indian broking.
As the son of a Bank Manager, he lived all across India before finally making Bangalore his home. He worked in a call centre for four years, working nights and trading during days, after which, he started "Kamath Associates", an advisory / sub-brokerage firm which paved the way to Zerodha. More recently, Nithin won the 2013 Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Emerging Entrepreneur Award for pioneering and scaling the discount broking model in India with Zerodha.
Outside work, you will find him working out, running triathlons, playing poker, basketball, and guitar.Connect
