Nitish MittersainJoint MD, Nazara Technologies

Hailing from a textile business family, Nitish was hooked to interactive gaming at the mere age of 7 when he coded his first game. He then went on to setup his own bulletin board service at 14 and finally merged his passion for gaming with the zeal to create something substantial, he founded Nazara Technologies at the age of 19.Nitish led Nazara to a very successful IPO as India’s first gaming company to list with an oversubscription of 175 times.
A sharp-eyed business mind facilitated him to take the Indian gaming industry to new heights with Nazara.
Nitish's ability to attract marquee investors, including the legendary Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, signalled a pivotal moment in India's gaming and tech landscape. Under his stewardship, Nazara witnessed unparalleled growth, with WestBridge Capital exiting with a staggering return of INR 1000 Cr on an initial investment of approximately INR 12 Cr, solidifying Nazara's position as a benchmark in the industry with a valuation nearing $1 billion.
