Have you ever wondered who is behind MarketOrders’ success?

At MarketOrders, we believe that the team is critical to a company’s success, which is why we’ve decided to highlight our fantastic talents in this series of blog articles. 

Today, you’ll find out more about Krystian Ozog, Chief Customer Care Officer, who’s been part of the team since the very beginning of MarketOrders. 

International background

Krys was born and raised in Poland, where his core education took place. 

In 2005, he moved to the UK and started working in construction while pursuing his passion for martial arts at GMMA Academy.

In 2013, Krys decided to focus on becoming a professional fighter and started working for a few digital startups run by Ram Krishnna, his martial arts coach and now CEO of MarketOrders. He also became Managing Director of non profit organisation called “British Sports Youth Trust” as well as Trustee and Volunteer for a number of other charities and community organisations.

His hard work and determination lead him to being a World Champion as well as an asset and an inspiration for MarketOrders.

His MarketOrders journey

As a Chief Customer Care Officer, Krys takes care of the products’ journey as well as MarketOrders customers. He ensures the quality of the products is top level and that they are being delivered directly to our customers safely, securely and on time.

He said: “I make sure that our customers are happy with both the products and our services. I also learn from them, adapt our services to their needs and always look for new ways to improve MarketOrders offering.”

Krys is a strong believer that new technologies have the power to change lives; he gave us his opinion on blockchain technology: “I am amazed and very excited about blockchain technology. I think it is a ground breaking technology that is already changing the world. It is a perfect fit for many industries, especially gold and diamond jewellery. It makes our revolutionary platform even safer and more secure and transparent.”

Part of the team since the very beginning, Krys has evolved and seen evolving MarketOrders through its startup journey, from a concept to an award winning business: “ 

Being a part of MarketOrders from the beginning has been a lifetime experience.

“I have been taking part in all possible operations at different stages of the development.

We’ve got some amazing professionals joining the team for the last couple of years. I think the team effort, enthusiasm and cooperation during our Crowdfunding campaign has built up the team spirit and is the most memorable event to date.”

An endless ambition

Krys is passionate about people, team work skills, work ethic, and attention to details, which he has built through sports and professional experience. He is also open minded and always looking for ways to improve himself and his work. What makes him feel happy is to jump into the unknown and support all kinds of operations that make him challenge himself and grow.

If he’s already reached to top in his sport career, Krys has ambition for this professional career and charity engagement too! Here is where he sees himself in 5 years: “In 5 years time I see myself help developing MarketOrders branches worldwide and help impacting other industries through the use of our technology. 

I see myself taking our GMMA Academy and non for profit organisation British Sports Youth Trust to another levels, opening our own gyms, training, inspiring and helping multiple people who will also join our quest.”

Co-Founders’ opinion

Sukhi Jutla, Co-Founder & COO: “Krys is a core team member having been with us from the start. He has a great can-do entrepreneurial attitude and always finds a way forward. He is an asset to the team and the company.”

Ram Krishnna, Co-Founder & CEO: “Krys is a very dedicated and passionate MarketOrders team member as well as a the greatest martial artist I ever trained. I have known Krys for over 10 years and he is a very hard working man and always looking to learn new things. He is curious, courageous and committed to deliver excellence.

If there is any other words more powerful to replace what I have said then I would replace it with that words. He is certainly an irreplaceable definite asset for me personally, and MarketOrders.”

MARKETORDERS GETS MORE COVERAGE IN THE PRESS FOLLOWING THE LAUNCH ON CROWDCUBE

MarketOrders, which taps blockchain tech to make the jewellery buying process more transparent, has kickstarted its crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube.com.

Aiming to raise a minimum of £400k, the startup plans to use the funding to officially launch its platform. Founded in 2016 by Sukhi Jutla (pictured above) and Ram Krishnna Rao, it is looking to transform the way in which independent retail jewellers purchase gold and diamond products from suppliers.

The venture has been self-funded to-date and will use this first round of external funding to make a number of strategic tech hires, who will primarily focus on developing the platform, which is currently in beta phase. It will also be able to bring onboard a number of international suppliers and invest significantly in marketing.

Rao comments: “Having worked on a number of jewellery ventures in the past, I feel confident that we’ve got a strong business model in MarketOrders. There was a clear gap in the market for an online marketplace that provides independents with superior buying benefits, and we’re excited to roll the platform out to more retailers and suppliers in the coming months.”

MARKETORDERS CROWDCUBE CAMPAIGN GOES LIVE !!!

MarketOrders, an award-winning B2B marketplace for the gold and diamond jewellery industries, announces it has kickstarted its crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube.com. Aiming to raise a minimum of £400k, the start-up has already reached 90% of its target through private investment before even going public. The company plans to use the funding to officially launch its platform, which will use blockchain technology to make the gold and diamond jewellery buying process more transparent.

Founded in 2016 by Sukhi Jutla and Ram Krishnna Rao, MarketOrders is on a mission to transform the way in which independent retail jewellers purchase gold and diamond products from suppliers. Specifically, MarketOrders uses technology to ensure jewellers can get the products they need faster, cheaper and directly from global suppliers, while cutting out the middle man.

As the first fully end-to-end B2B marketplace for the jewellery industry, MarketOrders is setting its sights high on the power of blockchain technology to weed out bad actors and money from the jewellery supply chain. As demand for gold jewellery continues to grow – in 2018, 48% of gold demand was consumed as jewellery – this will be critical to ensuring greater transparency at an industry level.

Sukhi Jutla, co-founder and COO of MarketOrders, said: “We’re thrilled to be crowdfunding for MarketOrders, and this funding will make a huge difference as we look to expand our exceptional team and invest heavily in updating our platform. We are passionate about supporting independent retail jewellers, and we strongly believe this marketplace will put the power back into their hands.”

Having been self-funded to-date, this first round of external funding will help MarketOrders grow its offer exponentially. The firm plans on making a number of strategic tech hires, who will primarily focus on developing the platform, which is currently in beta phase. The funding will also enable the start-up to bring on board a number of international suppliers and invest significantly in marketing.

The crowdfunding page is available here  with rewards ranging from discounts on products available through the MarketOrders marketplace, to a limited-edition solid gold 22-carat coin and 22ct jewellery set.

Ram Krishnna Rao, co-founder and CEO of MarketOrders, said: “Having worked on a number of jewellery ventures in the past, I feel confident that we’ve got a strong business model in MarketOrders. There was a clear gap in the market for an online marketplace that provides independents with superior buying benefits, and we’re excited to roll the platform out to more retailers and suppliers in the coming months.”

MarketOrders and its founder Sukhi Jutla have already won a number of awards, most recently being named as one of the Top 20 ‘Industry Visionaries’ by Outlier Ventures.
