For a financial portal born in late 1999, just when bursting of the dotcom bubble was about to nearly bring down both financial markets and the fledgling worldwide web, we couldn't have chosen a more difficult time to launch. But it was really passion and belief that saw us through. A single-minded passion to become the country's greatest resource for financial information on the Internet. And the belief, that through it, we would be able to make a difference to people's financial lives. Since 1999 through to today we have been there to chronicle the growth of the Indian economy. And along with it we have grown as well ; starting off as a financial portal that began by offering end-of-day stock prices to today arguably becoming India's biggest store of news (text and videos), analysis, data and tools on investing (across diverse asset classes), personal finance, the business sector and the economy. moneycontrol.com today gets over 17 million visitors every month across all its platforms-web, mobile and tablets that makes it the largest online financial platform in India. But while we've radically changed and evolved, the belief and passion to be the best and the most insightful hasn't. That, we hope, keeps us ticking. This we believe is merely the start of our journey.
Minimax was started on 16th July 2009 in a small and quaint office by the dynamic duo of Arvind Bhandari and Manish Agarwal. The business was started on the idea of "Minimum Budget & Maximum Coverage" and hence the name 'Minimax'. The founders of Minimax are stalwarts of the industry with their vast experience and in-depth knowledge. Mr. Arvind & Mr. Manish have been in the industry for 23 and 28 years respectively. Innovation has been at the heart of all their marketing strategies. Innovating on the outdoor platform has been their forte with numerous awards in their names to prove it. Minimax pulled off a campaign for one of their clients with 12 hoarding in a row with an innovative twist. It was a one of its kind campaign in the entire country. Minimax is pioneer of 40x40 hoarding trends. While the competitors where busy selling small - sized hoardings, Minimax realized the answer to all marketing quests lies in big sized hoardings. The insight was to get a wider coverage space and hence gain more visibility. Highways were the prime locations for such big-sized hoardings. Minimax Ads is an initiative which was started to revolutionize the Outdoor Advertisement industry. It specialized in providing multidisciplinary public relations and advertising services for image-building, creation of awareness and augment the ultimate sales of the clients.
