Why you should join Swadesh

Why are we building Swadesh? 🇮🇳

Our goal is to build the best place for Non Resident Indians (NRIs) to save, invest, and transfer money. We firmly believe that the outdated and opaque banking infrastructure in India makes it much harder, much riskier, and much less reliable to send or invest money back - especially for NRIs. This means we're leaving billions of dollars on the table. Billions that could help the economy, GDP growth, and job creation back home. Now more than ever it's time we amped up the flow of capital back.

We're doing this by using technology to help accelerate India's next 50 year growth story, and we're starting by building a better bank 🇮🇳It's time for all of us to play our part, so others like us don't need to leave.

Swadesh Bank is a US & India focused financial technology company re-imagining the Indian banking & investing experience for Non Resident Indians. We're backed by Y-Combinator and marquee silicon valley venture capital firms.
