About Aneeqa Khan
Aneeqa Khan is the 31 year old entrepreneur behind eporta, the trade-only, online platform that connects interior designers, architects and hospitality buyers with FF&E suppliers.
Born in Manchester, Aneeqa began her career in Private Equity Investment, working for Guy Hands at the age of 21 and joining CVC Capital Partners three years later. For both companies she broke new ground as the youngest hire.
In January 2014 she became Strategy Director and Head of IPO at the UK’s leading property website Zoopla, successfully leading the company’s IPO to achieve a £1bn exit.
eporta draws on Aneeqa’s significant experience at Zoopla, her understanding of technology as a business enabler and her passion for interiors to create a fresh and better way for this community to do business online.
eporta brings together trade buyers and high-quality suppliers in an exclusively B2B marketplace, enabling them to source products more efficiently and effectively streamline their business process.
In Aneeqa’s own words, “eporta exists to deliver a unique solution to trade buyers who told us they wanted a simple and efficient way to search for products, connect direct with sellers and efficiently manage the buying and shipping process. Put simply, eporta allows trade buyers to cut down on admin and spend more time on what they love.”
