Sukhi Jutla is an award-winning entrepreneur, author of three books, and co-founder of MarketOrders, a new digital marketplace for the gold and diamond industry.
After ten years in investment banking, Jutla quit her desk job to pursue her lifelong dream of being an entrepreneur — and she set her sights on transforming the jewellery industry. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign (which raised over £400,000), Jutla and her business partner launched MarkerOrders — the first fully end-to-end B2B marketplace.
The firm’s technology ensures that smaller independent jewellers can get the products they need faster, cheaper and directly from global suppliers by cutting out the middleman, empowering both retailers and manufacturers.
MarketOrders digitises every aspect of the supply chain, creating scalable efficiencies through the entire operational process using the securest of technologies; blockchain.
The Power List recognition is one of many for Jutla, who has won numerous awards including Asian Women of Achievement, Female Entrepreneur of The Year and she was named Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google. Furthermore, in 2019 she was appointed board member to the Mayor of London’s Digital Skills Partnership.
Jutla is far from a rising star in the business world, but it is an honour to see her reach new heights in the jewellery trade.
