Our Story

After nearly two decades in fintech in silicon valley, when Praj relocated to India, he found it surprising that businesses and individuals still rely on conventional methods like fixed deposits to park their short-term funds.

Coming from a fintech background, he knew these traditional methods were far from optimal for fund parking as they offered very low returns and lacked flexibility.

During his journey to find a solution to this problem, he crossed paths with Priyank who had great understanding of the Indian capital market and was passionate about building technology around value creation.

And thus, the idea for KOFFi started to take shape…
