About Decentro

Almost all the fin-tech companies face a number of hidden challenges -

  • Making the choice of the first bank for integration and the APIs within.
  • Lack of a single POC in the banks / financial / KYC institutions to avoid running around between departments to get APIs and solutions.
  • Testing and reaching product-market fit quickly & cheaply
  • The choice of banking/financial license (if any) to go to market

Imagine the possibilities in Fin-tech if we remove >90% of the friction in the flow of money and financial data. Imagine the amazing innovations that can happen!

We want to be the go-to the platform where all of you can come, plug in the data, play around and launch with the desired APIs and modular SDKs to go live within days (instead of months). No need to run around and waste 5-6 months to integrate with banking/legacy BFSI / government partners. Not only that, but we also take care of the upcoming fixes, iterations, and updates without breaking any flow.
