Eliott Jabes of Stockly tells us how they enable e-retailers to keep selling when out-of-stock, by shipping the products from other authorized retailers and brands in the network.
Tell us about you, your career, and how you founded Stockly.
Eliott Jabes: I am a Co-founder of Stockly and a graduate of Ponts et Chaussées. I launched my entrepreneurial career after having worked for a year as a software developer in a retail tech company and then as an internal consultant in a cosmetics group.
I joined forces with my fellow students in a first project in the e-commerce world: a price comparison site dedicated to sports shoes. To address major problems in this market, we launched Stockly in early 2018: the first shared stock network allowing e-tailers to never be out of stock.
Stockly then experienced strong traction, which allowed us to raise funds in July 2018 with renowned business angels.
I occasionally speak at conferences at Télécom ParisTech and ESCP, to share his experience. My expertise lies in the knowledge of the startup ecosystem, public speaking, early-stage fundraising, recruitment, and work organization. Forbes 30under30 2021.
