CashFlo - Business Lead - Sales & Marketing (2-10 yrs)
About CashFlo (https://www.cashflo.io):
CashFlo is an early-stage Fintech startup, based out of Mumbai. It is a first-of-its-kind private exchange for working capital addressing a $300 billion market of SME credit in India.
We're on a mission to solve one of the biggest pain points of businesses in India and globally - that of access to short-term credit. Lack of access to timely credit is one of the biggest reasons companies go bankrupt or are unable to grow. On the other hand, availability of timely credit has a direct impact on any country's GDP. We are solving this problem by creating a private exchange for businesses to get access to collateral-free short-term capital on demand. While there are several startups in the larger SME lending space - few are solving the problem at a scale or in a manner that we are looking to solve.
