Redefining Mobility for Billions

Ola is India’s largest mobility platform and one of the world’s largest ride-hailing companies, serving 250+ cities across India, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. The Ola app offers mobility solutions by connecting customers to drivers and a wide range of vehicles across bikes, auto-rickshaws, metered taxis, and cabs, enabling convenience and transparency for hundreds of millions of consumers and over 1.5 million driver-partners.

Ola’s core mobility offering in India is supplemented by its electric-vehicle arm, Ola Electric; India’s largest fleet management business, Ola Fleet Technologies and Ola Skilling, that aims to enable millions of livelihood opportunities for India's youth. With its acquisition of Ridlr, India’s leading public transportation app and investment in Vogo, a dockless scooter sharing solution, Ola is looking to build mobility for the next billion Indians. Ola also extends its consumer offerings like micro-insurance and credit led payments through Ola Financial Services and a range of owned food brands through India’s largest network of kitchens under its Food business.

Ola was founded in Dec 2010 by Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati with a mission to build mobility for a billion people.

The duo behind Ola

Bhavish Aggarwal

Bhavish is the Co-Founder & CEO of Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-sharing platforms and India’s most popular mobile app for transportation. With the mission of building mobility for a billion people, he started Ola (formerly OlaCabs) in 2010 with Ankit Bhati, a fellow alumnus from the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, the country’s premier institution for technology and science.

Before Ola, Bhavish worked with Microsoft Research for two years, filing two patents alongside having three papers published in international academic journals. True to his belief of the need to have on-demand consumer transportation as a service, Bhavish doesn't own a car himself and vows that he never will!

Ankit Bhati

Ankit is the Co-Founder & CTO of Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-sharing platforms and India’s most popular mobile app for transportation. With the mission of building mobility for a billion people, he started Ola (formerly OlaCabs) in 2010 with Bhavish, a fellow alumnus from the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, the country’s premier institution for technology and science.

At Ola, Ankit leads product, engineering, and data sciences, ensuring a strong back-end system that powers the experience of riders and driver partners alike. Scaling Ola in a short span of time, he has played a lead role in pioneering technologies such as mapping innovations, the world’s first connected car platform - Ola Play, and offline bookings that made Ola accessible for a large segment of the population.
