India Mints New Billionaire Woman As Nykaa Founder Grooms Her Startup For An IPO

| < 1 minute read

Veteran investment banker-turned-entrepreneur Falguni Nayar, whose beauty retailer Nykaa is poised to launch its IPO, has become India’s newest billionaire. In June, a pre-IPO private placement valued Nykaa at $2.3 billion, putting Nayar in the three comma club with an estimated net worth of $1.1 billion.

According to the latest report, the Indian beauty and personal care market is expected to hit $28 billion in 2025, up from $16 billion in 2020. Likewise, the fashion market is expected to touch $124 billion—up from $54 billion in 2020.

It shows that not all startups need to be cash-burn machines to achieve scaling and market leadership. We think that’s a great message to investors who are lapping up startup IPOs at the moment and augurs well for the medium-term strength of this segment of the IPO market.
