Eytan Daniyalzade is the Co-Founder and CEO of Toolio, a cloud-based merchandise planning platform to help next-generation retailers make faster, data-driven decisions on their most important asset – inventory. Toolio integrates into the retail-tech stack to streamline the end-to-end planning and merchandising processes including merchandise planning, open-to-buy management, assortment planning, and demand planning & replenishment. Toolio is trusted by the fastest growing retailers like Skims, MeUndies, The Sill, Mack Weldon, & Huckberry to save time and increase top-line revenue, profitability and cash flow through better planning.

Prior to Toolio, Eytan co-founded Stylr, a local search engine to find and reserve products in physical stores. After selling Stylr to Walmart in 2014, Eytan joined Walmart to lead its omni-channel initiatives. Eytan’s mandate within Walmart was using technology to improve the shopping experience in its supercenters. During his tenure there, Eytan started and scaled out many initiatives like Scan & Go, Walmart Pay, Digital Maps and Streamlined Store Pickups, each being used by millions of shoppers. Puzzled to see that the retail world was still running on Excel and million dollar decisions were being made on fragile spreadsheets, Eytan decided to leave and build a next generation planning platform, Toolio.

Eytan graduated with BSc and MSc from Stanford University and is originally from Istanbul, Turkey.
