- Zappos as shoesite.com
- Uber began as ubercabs.com
- Airbnb as airbedandbreakfast.com
- Oyo as oravel.com
- EaseMyTrip as a B2B sales booking engine for travel agents

Not many know this, but Pharmeasy went viral with over 40,000 users using its MVP app with ZERO marketing costs.
Just how did PharmEasy do that?
