In this episode of Figuring Out, Raj talks with the Co-Founder of Razorpay, Shashank Kumar.


In 2013, India did not have a homegrown payments solution for small businesses while US-based PayPal was struggling with regulations. With a vision to simplify online payments in India, Shashank co-founded Razorpay in 2013 after working with Microsoft US as a software developer.


Razorpay is India’s first full-stack financial solutions company. They are on a mission to enhance the payment experience of over 300 million end consumers.


Razorpay has grown from being a payment gateway provider to a solutions-driven organization boasting of an extensive products suite to accept and disburse payments as well as raise capital and park money.


The company has powered digital payments for more than 1,000,000 small and large businesses such as Indigo, BSE, Reliance, Sony and Oyo, among others.
