Video: Vijay Shekhar Sharma wants to bring a billion people to digital payments in India

To say that Vijay Shekhar Sharma is ambitious is an understatement. The founder of Paytm, India's largest digital payments company, has already revolutionised the way 400 million people spend money - whether it's buying dinner, paying an electric bill or sending money to a friend.

Over the course of his career, he's also ventured into online retail, banking and even gaming. But he's not done yet. Sharma wants to bring at least half a billion Indians into the banking system through Paytm's app. He also wants to put Paytm on the global map alongside the Googles and Facebooks of the world.
