Episode Description

In the Summit Series - Day One podcast, we speak to the founders that Elevation is partnering with, about their journeys, Elevation’s investment thesis and the opportunities that lie ahead.

In this episode, Vasudha Wadhera (VP, Elevation Capital) speaks to Anup Agarwal (Co-founder, Mintifi) on the journey of transforming B2B BNPL and business payments in India.

Mintifi partners with leading brands such as Tata Motors, Jockey, Berger Paints etc through its plug & play platform and enables inventory financing for their distributors and retailers. Traditional lending products do not meet the immediate, short-term needs of SMEs, which constitute ~80% of their total  financing needs. With proprietary credit underwriting technology and real-time digital processing, Mintifi provides credit on tap to these SMEs. This creates a win-win proposition for brands, distributors and retailers, fuelling revenue growth across the supply chain.
