Our mission is to use technology to enable frictionless banking and services," said Tushar Aggarwal, founder and chief executive officer of StashFin.
Without disclosing growth figures, the company said that it has witnessed a 200x growth over the last few years and is reportedly profitable. StashFin, which has a headcount of over 200 employees, plans to expand its team across different geographies.
“The team has built extremely compelling bank grade infrastructure in a frugal manner. The advanced machine learning and AI models can be scaled across various geographies. We are excited to partner with StashFin on this exciting journey," said Salil Deshpande from Uncorrelated Ventures.
