Asish Mohapatra

Co-Founder & CEO, OfBusiness

Asish Mohapatra is the co-founder and CEO of OFB Tech, a first-of-its-kind B2B product fulfilment (“OfBusiness”) and financing platform (“Oxyzo”). He spearheads overall operations with a keen interest across sales, risk and collections.

Asish started his professional career at ITC as an Operations Manager in 2002. There, he turned around a sick ITC subsidiary SME into a fully functional production unit with more than INR 1,000 crore annual turnover within two years. In 2006, he went on to become an Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company with manufacturing and pharmaceuticals as his key domains. He then moved to Matrix Partners as a venture capitalist from 2010 to 2015, leading 7 investments in healthcare and consumer.

Post that, Asish co-founded (with 4 other colleagues) OfBusiness in 2016 and Oxyzo in 2018. OfBusiness, in a span of less than 6 years, has built amongst the most scaled, profitable, leveraged and engaged B2B enterprises (valued at US$5B+) in India. It provides raw material fulfilment across supply chains ranging from metals to plastics, food grains, garments, petrochemicals and industrial chemicals. Oxyzo (also a unicorn independently) is a financial services company, which largely has been built to support the commerce industry with its innovative product called “purchasing financing”. Today, Oxyzo has built its product suite across many other financial services.

An avid family man, Asish is a published poet, a sketch artist, a sports enthusiast and a trivia lover. He counts IIT Kharagpur and ISB Hyderabad as his Alma matters.
