Swadesh is building the world's first neobank for the largest immigrant population - Indian expats. We're the first India investment for a set of marquee VC firms in the US, because they see how exciting this problem is!
Every year, 30M Indian origin members send back $80B+ home to India (highest received by any country / year); and yet, today, they still have to go to an embassy to get their documents attested, picked up by courier, and shipped to across the world before being able to access their finances.
Add the struggle and stress new immigrants face when they just move abroad - from establishing credit to opening a bank account - you have a wide set of deeply frustrating but exciting problems to solve!
And we're here to build a product specifically tailored to Indian expats. We're building the services we wished existed when we emigrated. If you've faced similar problems and wondered who's solving them - we're here, and we're looking for you.
Swadesh is building India's first digital bank for Non Resident Indians. We’re replacing the broken infrastructure and banking experience for the largest expat population in the world to enable greater capital flow back to India.
We're a team of 🇮🇳 lovers who believe passionately about the cross border financial technology opportunity to connect India & USA more closely. We understand the pain, the sleepless nights, and the sheer luck that it takes to build better lives for our families abroad.
We have first hand experienced the broken banking and investing experience in India as Non Resident Indians. We care about giving back, and want to do this by building better financial systems to allow us to generate more wealth for all Indians at home and abroad.
At Swadesh, we are re-imagining what a bank looks like for the 21st century built entirely from the ground up using code. Our technology stack includes PostgresSQL, Docker, AWS, Flutter, Python/Django, and Golang.
