Use technology, encourage the use of technology, to create platforms for all.
Armed with a Stanford MS in computer science, Wharton MBA, and formidable leadership experience at Amazon, BCG, Flipkart, and Sequoia, Nipun is now shaking up traditional retail across Southeast Asia with Ula. After spending countless hours listening to these offline small store owners (who make up 70-80% of all retail!), Nipun and his team are on a mission to make B2B life easier for them, via offering more efficient sourcing, reliable delivery and working capital. Coming out of stealth mode in a time of crisis, the Ula team is battling the coronavirus pandemic right when their retail partners need them the most.
Prior to co-founding Ula, Nipun served as an investor at Sequoia, Senior Director of Retail at Flipkart, Chief Product & Strategy Officer at Pine Labs, Manager of Engineering and Product at Amazon, and a consultant with BCG. He holds a BE in Computer Science from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, an MS in Computer Science from Stanford, and an MBA from Wharton.
