Vision
We are making trading & investing in capital markets easier, safer & profitable. 

History indicates that only 1% of the traders make money & less than 10% survive the first 6 months in the markets. We believe with safer technology, framework and skills, the casualties in capital markets can be reduced dramatically.

With this vision, we are building intelligent platforms & products that will change the way India trades and invests. 

Mission for 2 Years
So far, we are one of the best analytical platforms for traders in India. Our users like our charts, alerts and scanner that enable them to track & analyse markets with ease & efficiently.  

Now, we are focussed on becoming one of the most popular trading platforms in India.

Traction so far
As of today, we have 3.25 Lac traders using our platform monthly & over 1.5 Lac daily, spending over 45 mins per day.

We are the 3rd most used app in India, after Moneycontrol & Zerodha. And only one of the 2000 apps globally to have more than 1 Million downloads & 4.75 rating.

Our DNA
We believe that work should be a love-affair. And this simple agenda has helped us shape our DNA. We work hard to get in the right people and like to take our decisions democratically, whether big or small. We stay away from hierarchies, bosses, managers & people who need these. We don’t believe in spending 15 hours in office. We do what we love, yet have the capacity to do what’s required, joyfully.

Our motivations
We solve real pain-points that impact lives. The domain’s complexity & impact excites us. We like the challenge of going against the big guys & coming out on top. And lastly, the opportunity of building an organisation that we all love to be part of.
