The BBC will be airing a documentary about Divyank Turakhia, the self-made billionaire who founded a number of companies with his brother Bhavin. Many domain investors know Div through his involvement with Directi and related domain industry companies like Skenzo, Radix, Big Rock, and quite a few others. Div and Bhavin really hit it big with Media.net. Ron Jackson profiled Div a few years ago, and you can read more about Div’s involvement in the domain industry on DNJournal.
Div announced the BBC World News documentary in a public Facebook post earlier today:
Here’s the excerpt from the BBC website describing the documentary:
“Is Divyank Turakhia the most successful technology billionaire you have never heard of? The entrepreneur behind three multi-million web companies shares his story of how he and his brother came from a normal apartment in Mumbai to create a global online empire by offering companies what they needed to get online before anyone else.”
There are several showtimes for this program listed, but I am sure the times will vary based on your timezone. Hopefully the BBC will upload the show to allow people to watch it at their convenience.
