Last year, Saikiran Krishnamurthy left Ola after a brief stint while Binny Bansal had to leave his brainchild – Flipkart.
Krishnamurthy however after making an exit from Ola in July, had started working on his startup xto10x. Bansal became another promoter of the startup and they both were last reported to be in the final leg of launching the new game.
Now they have on-boarded another member in the team, Neeraj Aggarwal who they believe can also offer significant contributions in all the functions – product, learning, and services. Aggarwal comes from a background of deep knowledge and experience in supply chain, and knows how to “leverage technology for transformation”.
Aggarwal has quit his top role at Eatfit in Curefit to join xto10x and run a startup that brings disruption in the ecosystem with his former colleagues from Flipkart.
He had joined Flipkart in 2013 as a Director of last mile delivery and after his tenure of over three years at the firm he had exit as Vice President of Supply Chain Operations and Design to join Cure.Fit. On the other hand, Krishnamurthy also had a 1.5 year long stint at Flipkart where he was heading eKart, Flipkart’s Supply Chain business.
For the uninitiated, the firm xto10x basically aims at helping early stage or growth stage startups in scaling up but chose an entirely different route than Venture Capital, and a slightly different path than incubation and acceleration as well.
xto10x believes that its target startups need technology tools and strategy, operations solutions to be able to realise their complete potential. Currently, it provides a customised educational course, reference and events cases, and consultancy and mentoring services.
Bansal and Krishnamurthy have already been piloting the products and services to several growth stage startups, and Aggarwal will help take the procedure further.
In a nutshell, all the three top executives of xto10x have worked together in Flipkart playing major roles. Now they have come together to run a startup together.
