Ayekart Fintech expands its management team


Aditya Khanna has been named Chief Transformation Officer at Ayekart, India’s first complete digital technology platform for the agriculture value chain, while Sachin Dubey has been named Group President – Strategic Initiatives. Ayekart has created a platform for digitally empowering the MSMEs, distributors, retailers, and farmers supply chain ecosystem.

Speaking on his appointment, Aditya said “Ayekart has built a holistic ecosystem that is empowering small businesses and entrepreneurs across the agricultural value chain. It uses a technology platform that not only generates actionable insights but also seamlessly connects producers with aggregators, manufacturers, and retailers. Supported by cross-sectoral expertise, the firm continues to enable sustainable growth for its client base. I am glad to be a part of this journey that uses the trifecta of technology, finance, and services to create targeted solutions for each of our stakeholders, enabling greater sustainability, profitability, and growth.”

Aditya Khanna has over 20 years of expertise in establishing and developing businesses, as well as counselling CXOs in multiple industries (BFSI, Automotive, TTH, and Retail) on business transformation and driving profitable growth in India, the United States, Africa, Asia, and other locations. Aditya, an IIM Calcutta alumnus, has extensive experience in business transformation, most notably building a digital business transformation practise in India for Publicis Groupe and developing cutting-edge digital experience and e-commerce platform solutions for its clients.

Reacting to his appointment, Sachin said “I am elated to take on this new role at India’s first integrated digital platform, that addresses the needs and challenges of the end-to-end food and agricultural value chain. Our key differentiator is that we enable and partner with all stakeholders, including FPOs, FPCs, small aggregators, millers, processors, retailers, and distributors for mutual benefit and sustainable growth. We intend to keep this at our core while strategically expanding our portfolio to introduce new business verticals focusing on each of these stakeholders in a holistic manner.”

Sachin Dubey, an IIFM alumnus, has over 22 years of experience running social impact, skill development, and CSR activities for public and commercial institutions. Sachin has previously assisted in the development of strategy and implementation plans for the evaluation of officials as part of the Government of India’s ambitious “Mission Karmayogi.” He also worked for Pearson Plc, where he was the head of the International Qualifications and Vocational Training business in India.

Speaking on the appointments, Debarshi Dutta, CEO & Co-founder, Ayekart stated, “We are delighted to welcome Mr. Sachin Gupta and Mr. Aditya Khanna as a part of our leadership team.

Sachin has a consistent track record of business growth and P&L turnaround, and has experience working with a wide array of institutional partners, central and several state governments, and corporates. His expertise in designing strategic initiatives and building out the core of the business will be the backbone for Ayekart.

Aditya’s extensive commercial experience in bridging the gap between business & technology and generating value through Digital Business Transformation, Business Strategy, and Experience design is an ideal fit for growing our service offerings. He has always been a keen business leader and it is an honor for us that he teamed up with Ayekart.”

Dutta further added, “We believe that both Aditya and Sachin will help us evaluate the prospects of new opportunities, champion key strategic initiatives, and achieve transformational change that will carry us through our next stage of growth as a company.” The announcement follows Ayekart’s recent equity and debt funding of $5.5 million from Caspian and Siply.
