Experience + Technology + Vision = Disruption
At Inxeption, our trio of founders not only have helped fundamentally shape the software industry as entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors, but they understand how businesses that make, sell, and ship products have not been well served by other online commerce platforms and marketplaces.
CEO and co-founder
Farzad Dibachi was the founding CEO of a series of innovative software companies including Diba and Niku (which Goldman Sachs took public in a $7 billion IPO) as well as the LED manufacturing company Noribachi. He began his career at Oracle Corporation, where he rose to senior vice president of Oracle’s New Media Division and he led product development and marketing teams that created the fundamental infrastructure needed to digitize content and distribute it online. He holds a B.S. in mechanical engineering and a B.A. in computer science from San Jose State University.
Business owners are demanding a better way to digitize and integrate the full slate of business needs from financial resources to marketing online, to collaborating with partners, to ecommerce carts. Inxeption aims to become a business owner’s advocate. We help our customers do business better
COO and co-founder
Mark Moore is a software engineer and entrepreneur with more than 30 years of experience developing disruptive technology. His career began at Oracle Corporation where he led a team that developed the infrastructure technology and application prototypes for the first large-scale deployment of residential video-on-demand services.He has held senior development positions at companies including Recommind and Niku, and he was founder and CEO of One True Media/Spotmixer. He holds a B.S. in computer science from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL.
Old software models are less and less relevant to modern business dynamics. It takes too long and demands too much capital to implement enterprise-wide systems that are immediately obsolete. Inxeption represents a better way to give business owners at every scale the ability to sell more, become more efficient, and get better visibility into their own business and collaborations.

Terry is a co-founder and member of the Inxeption board of directors who brings decades of perspective as an investor and shaper of software companies such as Actian, New Era of Networks, Neoforma, and Niku. He also began his career at Oracle, where he ran worldwide marketing and corporate development. Terry spent years as a general partner at Venrock, and he is the co-founder of Garnett Helfrich Capital, a $350m technology venture buyout firm that successfully built up several market leaders including Blade Network Technologies (acquired by IBM) and Wyse Technologies (acquired by IBM).
Terry holds an M.B.A. from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business and a B.S. from the University of California, Berkeley.
Over the next decade, it’s inevitable that the industrial world will adopt the e-commerce model that has thrived in the consumer sector. This will include new innovative services and marketplaces that create dynamic enterprises that operate in a real-time environment.

Inxeption taps into a huge unmet need: Business owners want and need to digitally transform, but current solutions are too complex and expensive, whether you own one retail shop or a multi-billion-dollar P&L. The Inxeption vision is the future of ecommerce for business.
