Why you should join Swadesh

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.
