Co-Founder and CEO, Ezetap
Abhijit Bose has over twenty years of international experience building products and scaling businesses. Prior to founding Ezetap, he was an executive with Siebel Systems (which was acquired by Oracle), Intuit and NGPay, one of India’s first mobile commerce companies (which was eventually acquired by Flipkart). Ezetap is India’s leading universal payments platform processing over 5 million transactions monthly with an annualized gross transaction value of US$ 1.5 billion. Founded in Bangalore, India by Silicon Valley veterans in 2011, Ezetap is a one-stop partner handling every configuration of digital payments required by merchants. The company has raised more than $51 million in funding to-date and its investors include Social Capital, the Silicon Valley firm led by former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya, Helion Advisors, American Express, Li Ka-Shing’s Horizons Ventures, JS Capital (Jonathan Soros), Prime Venture Partners, and Capricorn Ventures (Jeff Skoll Group). Speaking about the latest round of funding, Chamath Palihapitiya said of Ezetap: “Ezetap is in an incredible position as the leading platform for Indian merchants, with deep IP and no obvious US proxy – it’s like a combination of Stripe, AWS and Android, built for the complexities of the Indian market.” In 2017, Ezetap was the only Indian company named to the CNBC Disruptor 50 list – CNBC-USA’s list of the 50 most disruptive technology companies in the world – for the second year in a row. Ezetap was also recently on the CB Insights 2017 list of the top 250 Fintech companies in the world. He has a BS in Engineering from Cornell University and MBA from Harvard Business School.
