This 27-Year Old Indian Is India's Youngest Billionaire: Created A Unicorn In 9 Months

Who is Pearl Kapur?

With MSC in Investment Banking (CFA Pathway) from Queen Mary University of London, Kapur has distinguished academic prowess. It was in May 2023, that Kapur’s entrepreneurial journey began. His majority of wealth comes from impressive 90% stake in Zyber 365 Technologies Ltd (UK).

His success can be attributed to the success of Zyber 365, a prominent Indian firm specializing in Blockchain Technology and Cybersecure AI Ecosystems. Headquartered in London with operations in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, this May 2023 founded company has swiftly emerged as the fastest-growing unicorn in India and Asia, boasting a valuation of $1.2 billion.

With a net worth of $1.1 billion and 90% ownership, Kapur’s personal wealth reflects his entrepreneurial acumen. 

What has propelled the startup to a valuation of $1.2 billion is the substantial investment of 8.3%, being injected in the $100 million in Series A funding by the Sram & Mram Group.

Zyber 365’s Swift Climb

Zyber 365’s innovative EVM Compatible Smart Contract Platform, operating as a Layer 1 Chain with a Proof of Authority (PoA) consensus mechanism, underscores its commitment to sustainability, security, and energy efficiency, aligning with the goals of Humanity & United Nations SDG Goals.

Prior to entrepreneurship, Kapur worked as a Financial Advisor at AMPM Store and a Business Advisor for Antier Solutions.

Bitten by the startup bug, he founded Billion Pay Technologies Pvt Ltd in February 2022 which laid the groundwork for his remarkable success in the realm of technology and innovation.
