Profile : Pradeep Dadha ( FOUNDER AND CEO, NETMEDS.COM )

Pradeep Dadha has enjoyed many business successes and accolades, but the most recent may be the topper. His latest venture India first online pharphamacy Netmeds.com, known as India Ki Pharmacy, brought home the highly coveted NDTV Unicorn Award for Health-Tech Start-up of the Year 2016. The site offers a wide selection of both prescription drugs and non-prescription products (OTC) drugs, supplying over 35,000 stock keeping units (SKUs) from its Fulfilment Centres throughout the country. In its first year of business the company has served customers in every state and more than 800+ cities. 

Prior to launching Netmeds, he paved a tracked record of innovation and achievement by founding and leading companies that operated worldwide and within a range of industries that include hospitality, digital publishing, e-commerce, and corporate wellness. Growing up in Chennai, he graduated from Loyola College and worked at his family’s pharmaceutical business, Dadha Pharma, Pvt. Ltd, starting at the bottom and working his way up through virtually every level of the business. A descendant of a long line of entrepreneurs, whose reputation in Tamil Nadu has been earned over a span of more than 100 years, Pradeep worked as a sales representative at the company before assuming other roles in its fulfilment and human resources departments. He eventually created a retail distribution chain of more than 1,500 outlets. Then, to further hone his business acumen, Pradeep left the comfort zone of the family business and took positions with the contact centre divisions of Reliance Infocom and Sun Communique. As a member of the core management teams, he was involved with Budget Preparations, Cost and ROI Analysis, Client Contract Negotiations, Human Resources Allocation and generally became highly competent at contact centre and BPO centre management. This was to prepare him well for his ensuing role as an early adapter of the global BPO trend period.
