Origins of growth
Founded in Chicago in 2014 by Dhruv Saxena and Divey Gulati, ShipBob has become one of the fastest-growing tech companies in America. The idea for ShipBob started after Dhruv and Divey launched a direct-to-consumer company that allowed users to quickly send physical pictures to loved ones. As the business expanded, they quickly realized they spent more time shipping orders than growing their business.

In talking to other entrepreneurs, the co-founders realized a bigger problem to solve: a better way to fulfill orders. By allowing ecommerce brands to focus on what’s important — growing their business and delivering a remarkable customer experience — ShipBob helps provide best-in-class fulfillment.

ShipBob was accepted into startup accelerator Y Combinator in 2014, but instead of completing the program from San Francisco like other companies, Dhruv and Divey wanted to remain close to their customers in Chicago, so they went through the program remotely and commuted to the Bay Area every week. They graduated from Y Combinator, raised a seed round from a Chicago VC, and then started scaling ShipBob in Chicago.

ShipBob, the innovator
To help ecommerce businesses be more successful online, ShipBob has launched dozens of fulfillment centers across the world, dozens of integrations and partnerships with the world’s leading tech companies, and APIs for developers to build more connections into ShipBob’s powerful technology and ecosystem. ShipBob allows merchants to scale internationally with a unified merchant application, fulfillment engine, warehouse management system, and data to make real-time supply chain decisions.

How ShipBob enables innovation
By performing time-consuming tasks and providing analytics to merchants of all sizes, ShipBob can help them scale faster and smarter, giving them back precious time and new insights into business performance to bring new products to market, reach new customers, and expand globally.

Looking ahead, the ShipBob team is most excited about expanding more across new channels and around the globe, while retaining its Chicago roots.
