With a small but highly efficient team of 8 members, UcliQ is an emerging B2B company (Marketplace) that seeks to revolutionize local supply chains in India. Though only 2 years old, UcliQ have around 1200 retailers they supply to, and over 400 suppliers on board.
In 2019 Founder & CEO – Sameer Malik started the UcliQ. The dream of UcliQ began as a B2C company that sought to make lives easier for individuals, households by curating a hyper local setup in various categories of goods and services – Groceries, Fruits and Vegetables, Medicine, Dry cleaning, etc. UcliQ targeted around 1500 households and partnered with 500+ retailers.
It was while being engaged in the system from within that UcliQ began to see the loopholes in the B2B supply chain prevalent in India. Price differences and unavailability of products were rampant, causing significant loses for businesses. UcliQ realised they could play a more significant role towards helping our local businesses if they tackle this problem instead, and with this new goal in mind, in December 2019, UcliQ switched to B2B and started their B2B operation in December 2020.
