A few years ago, businesses were struggling to accept card payments, and this demanded a solution that could enable the smooth running of businesses across the country.
In this edition of Founder Thesis, Akshay Datt speaks with Akash Sinha, Co-founder and CEO, Cashfree Payments, a Bengaluru-based FinTech start-up which facilitates businesses in India to collect payments online and make pay-outs.
