Vaibhav Garg

Head of Business Strategy, BankOpen

Vaibhav Garg has been a tech entrepreneur, with experiences across Fintech & SME
tech, over most of the last decade. Currently, Vaibhav leads Business Strategy at Bank
Open – one of the world’s fastest growing SME-focused business banking platforms with
over 1 million+ SMEs, processing over USD 24 billion in annualized transaction
processing volume & adding 50,000 new SMEs every month.

Before joining Open, Vaibhav founded Boro, which was focused on empowering small
merchants to sell on credit. Boro built a pioneering WhatsApp based onboarding flow,
removing customer friction in availing credit at the point-of-sale.

Previously, Vaibhav was part of the founding team at Zopper, where they built India's first
hyperlocal marketplace & smart ERP system for small retailers. Zopper has raised US$
~20 million from investors like Tiger Global, Nirvana Ventures and Blume Ventures. A
part of Zopper’s business, focused on tech for small retailers, was acquired by PhonePe
in 2018.

Prior to leading Boro & Zopper, Vaibhav co-founded IndieHaat – a B2B commerce
platform – to streamline the broken process of sourcing handicrafts from India. Through
a technology-based workflow, they enabled small buyers outside India to source from
Indian artisans digitally.

Vaibhav has had a consulting stint prior to his entrepreneurial forays & is an engineering
graduate in Metallurgy & Materials Science from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT),
Bombay.
