Niki Khokale & Rajas Lonkar: The dynamic duo behind the bytes

Our tale begins with Niki Khokale, a former Google maestro in Head of S&OP, and Rajas Lonkar, the coding wizard with stints at Google and IBM. Together, they birthed Fountain9 in 2020, armed with the mission of tackling food wastage – a problem costing the world 1.3 billion tonnes of food annually. Armed with a vision and a sense of humor, Niki and Rajas set out to revolutionize the inventory game.
