Sashank Rishyasringa and Gaurav Hinduja were given many reasons why Capital Float would not work. Naysayers said the market was not ready and they lacked experience. The duo has proven them wrong. Today, the startup is one of India’s largest fintech NBFCs with 400,000-plus customers in 300 cities and towns across the country. The Bengaluru-based company’s portfolio includes a slew of financing products for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) including brick-and-mortar retailers, wholesalers, restaurant owners, manufacturers, and kirana store owners.
