SVG Media Pvt Ltd, a joint venture between Manish Vij’s Vun Network and Harish Bahl’s Smile Group, started operations in 2006 and is now one of the largest digital media companies in the country. In fact, it says it is set to become the first digital media company in India—after Google and Facebook—to clock $100 million annual revenue. The Gurgaon-based company operates several businesses including mobile and digital advertising, in-app video platform and data targeting through units Tyroo, DGM, Seventynine and Komli.
