Our continued focus on identifying the top leaders in Fintech across various categories globally brings us to introducing the Top 100 Women in Fintech.

Women leaders are essential to any organisation and industry. While gender diversity is an important aspect, it is the culture and value set that is directly influenced in a big way. For the Fintech industry in particular, inclusion and diversity are traits it just cannot do without to flourish globally. And as opposed to the traditional banking sector in the past decades, we continue to see more women as entrepreneurs and holding key positions across a range of financial services organisations.

LATTICE80 remains committed to recognising and advancing the contribution of female leaders as a global community partner to the financial technology industry and its sub-categories like blockchain, insurance, lending, personal finance.

Our collaboration with Miss Kaya – a lifestyle driven financial platform for the modern woman – led by Gina Heng has been to ensure that the leaders identified are some of the best inspiration for the next generation of women in Fintech. Miss Kaya was created upon realising the remissness of platforms understanding and attending to the financial needs of women, especially in the Asian region.

Finova Capital raises $6 mn from existing investor Sequoia

Jaipur-based non-banking financial company Finova Capital Pvt. Ltd has raised $6 million (Rs 6.5 crore) from its existing investor Sequoia Capital for expansion, according to a media report.

Jaipur-based non-banking financial company Finova Capital Pvt. Ltd has raised $6 million (Rs 6.5 crore) from its existing investor Sequoia Capital for expansion, according to a media report.

Mohit Sahney, CEO at Finova Capital, told The Economic Times that the company is investing significantly in technology without directly commenting on the funding.

Finova Capital had raised an undisclosed amount in a Series A round from Sequoia Capital in September last year, in its first round of external funding. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the $6 million was part of the Series A tranche.

An email query sent to Sequoia did not elicit response. Finova could not be reached out for comments.

The firm will use the funds for expanding operations, investing in technology and acquiring talent, the financial newspaper reported.

Founded in 2015 by husband-wife duo Mohit and Sunita Sahney, Finova lends to financially-excluded small-time manufacturers, handymen and service providers, such as electricians, plumbers and carpenters, besides paanwalas, milkmen and hairdressers. It offers loans of Rs 8-9 lakh for up to seven years and charges an annual interest of 21-25%.

The financial sector in India has gained a lot of traction in recent years with several players entering the payments, lending, insurance and personal finance space.

In 2017, the Indian fin-tech sector mopped up around $1.84 billion in total funding with online lending platforms accounting for the maximum investment deals by volume – around 45 of the total 75 deals in the space. Industry experts also expect that online lending platforms will continue to get a lot of investor attention in 2018 as well.

In January this year, Pune-based Social Worth Technologies Pvt. Ltd, which runs online lending platform EarlySalary, raised Rs 100 crore ($15.7 million) in a Series B funding round led by Eight Roads Ventures India.
