Fall 2015 | Past

The Indian landscape is primed for entrepreneurs using technology to promote financial inclusion.  Sixty percent of Indians are unbanked and ninety percent of small businesses have no links to formal financial institutions.  Yet 80% of Indians own mobile phones, and 32% will own a smartphone by 2017.  The Indian Government is prioritizing financial inclusion through schemes such as Jan Dhan Yojana, Aadhaar enrollment, and payment bank licenses, and fintech entrepreneurs are emerging around the country.
