Two co-founders of Google Pay in India are building a neo-banking platform in the country — and they have already secured backing from three top VC funds.
Sujith Narayanan, a veteran payments executive who co-founded Google Pay in India (formerly known as Google Tez), said on Monday that his startup, epiFi, has raised USD 13.2 million in its Seed financial round led by Sequoia India and Ribbit Capital.
The eight-month-old startup is working on a neo-banking platform that will focus on serving millennials in India, said Narayanan, in an interview with TechCrunch.
“When we were building Google Tez, we realized that a consumer’s financial journey extends beyond digital payments. They want insurance, lending, investment opportunities and multiple products,” he explained.
