Recipe for success
It’s very simple – act fast, persevere, have a big vision and stay humble.
Your unique idea
We created an entirely new way for MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) to grow their business and collect payments without any technical know-how or IT skills, no upfront costs, no physical paperwork or any sort of dependency while leveraging the internet and mobile.
Partnership with Kalaari
Vani, and later Bala, were very patient with us from the beginning, helping us navigate towards our core value proposition. That’s something which has helped us scale up much faster than we’d expected. Our journey so far with Kalaari has been very smooth.
Your first meeting
Kalaari showed an interest from our very first meeting, so much so that within 10 days they moved in to close. Honestly, we were a little apprehensive of the speed as most Indian VCs take a lot more time. But that’s one of the things we’ve grown to love Kalaari for!
