To make instant commerce accessible to every brand, enabling magical brand-to-consumer connections and experiences in every e-commerce purchase.
Founder & CEO
Ben Jones started his career in Fixed Income Sales & Trading, where he built a $20m ARR business from scratch, and quickly became a rising star within the industry. Everything changed after a serious back injury left him temporarily paralyzed and stuck at home, reliant on e-commerce. The frustration of having to wait 3–5 days to receive online orders vs. being able to get them same-day in stores made him realize that e-commerce was increasingly falling behind Amazon. He left banking to pursue Ohi’s mission of enabling every brand to offer an “instant” post-purchase experience. Ben has a BA and MA from The University of Cambridge, and an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business. In his spare time he’s an accomplished diver & skier, and enjoys an occasional round of golf.
Co-Founder & CTO
Nick Blanchet is an accomplished startup veteran with 10 years of developing cutting edge technology and building high performing teams. He has helped facilitate hyper-growth at his previous two startups, Simplereach (acquired by Nativo) and Ellevest. He brings his experience to lead the technology team in developing a first-class post-purchase logistics platform that reduces delivery errors, increases visibility and delights both customers and clients. During his free-time he loves hiking with his wife, son and dog and occasionally gets to race triathlons or enjoy a couple runs on the slopes.
