Zilingo Co-Founder & CEO Ankiti Bose On How A Shopping Trip Led Her To Become A Fashion-Tech Mogul
When Ankiti Bose visited Thailand a few years ago, she never imagined a trip to the local market would change the course of not only her career but also her life. As she strolled through the streets of Bangkok’s Chatuchak Weekend Market, Ankiti noticed a gap. The small and medium-sized merchants didn’t have access to digital platforms to sell their goods and had to rely only on middlemen. Bose foresaw two possible outcomes: they would either be crushed by large conglomerates or continue to be exploited by middlemen. That’s how she conceived the idea for Zilingo, an e-commerce platform where small business owners can market their products online.

Take Five: “The future of fashion can belong to everyone”
Ankiti Bose is CEO of Zilingo, an online fashion retail business (B2B and B2C). She has been featured in the Forbes Asia 30 Under 30, Fortune 40 Under 40, and Bloomberg 50 lists. In visiting Chatuchak market in Bangkok, she noticed a gap in the fashion industry: while small- and medium-sized enterprises had a lot to offer and were hungry for growth, they were ill-equipped to scale up or to compete with global players without the right tools and software. She set out to level the playing field by starting Zilingo with Chief Technical Officer Dhruv Kapoor. In March, Zilingo formally committed to the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), which UN Women helped develop to promote fairness for women in the private sector. Bose, 28, is an Indian national now based in Singapore.
Meet the IITian who is improving efficiency in the $3 trn fashion industry
Four years ago, during a house party in Bengaluru, Dhruv Kapoor, an engineer at gaming studio Kiwi Inc, had a conversation with his neighbour Ankiti Bose who was an investment analyst at venture capital firm Sequoia. Both had reached a point in their careers where they wanted to create their own start-up. But they had contrasting skill sets and had done different kinds of work. “But we had a very common vision (about) the future of technology and commerce,” says Kapoor. Later, after many similar conversations, the duo quit their jobs and in 2015 launched their own start-up, Zilingo, a commerce and technology platform that powers the entire fashion supply chain. A lot has changed for Kapoor in these four years. Early last year the firm raised $226 million from marquee investors such as Sequoia, Sofina and Temasek. The funding valued the firm at about $970 million.

Zilingo's Ankiti Bose: On track to build a unicorn
Ankiti Bose charted Zilingo's road to progress by changing track from being a fashion marketplace to a service provider to businesses. Ankiti Bose and Dhruv Kapoor brought their maiden venture Zilingo within sniffing distance of becoming a unicorn within four years of launching their company in 2015 largely by taking a few unusual and tough calls. Its gradual transition into an entity focused on business-to-business (B2B) sales, as against the Southeast Asia-focused fashion marketplace that Zilingo started out as, is a case in point. “Scaling down our business-to-consumer [B2C] business is definitely one of the toughest decisions we have made recently,” says Bose, co-founder and CEO.
