Bizongo was founded in 2015 by three IIT graduates — Aniket Deb, Sachin Agrawal and Ankit Tomar. According to Agrawal, Bizongo has created a value proposition that promises 100% availability of packaging material and no-stock-outs at very low inventory. “This helps clients to reduce their packaging material procurement cost by 2-5% and at the same time ensures better production planning for our supply partners. This creates a strong value proposition for all stakeholders across the value chain,” he said.
