Abstract

In 1992, Rajesh Hukku, then head of Citicorp Overseas Software, spun off Citicorp Information Technology Industries Ltd. (CITIL), now called i-flex solutions, from the giant financial institution. Citi had decided that software wasn't its business, but invested $400,000 in the venture. In 2005, Oracle bought out Citicorp's 42% interest for $592 million, a humongous return on Citi's investment in just 13 years. In the first of a two-part interview with India Knowledge@Wharton, Hukku spoke about i-flex's start and strategy with Ravi Aron, a senior fellow at Wharton's Mack Center for Technological Innovation.
