We are excited about our progress so far and want to speak our heart out to let you know how this young fintech originated and about its roller-coaster journey so far.
And here it goes…
The Initial Days of Hylobiz
Like many other startups, we had a humble start.
With a mission to solve the pain points of businesses, the founding team of Hylobiz presented their brainchild to the business segment of India in 2019. However, the growth path of Hylobiz was not very smooth.
A flashback… images, and events from the past take the front seats… few brains, limited resources, undefined workspace, unpredictable moments, switching emotions, big goals, and a strong belief!
To see the years before inception, survive in the market since the official launch, withstand instability and failures, and achieve every bit of success till today, took years of perseverance, togetherness, and hard work of a committed team that grew slowly over the years guided by the vision and mission laid down by the four experienced co-founders.
The Story Behind the Birth of Hylobiz
Hylobiz since the period of ideation was unique in its approach compared to the existing players. We started as a “ZERO PROCESS CHANGE” collections and payouts automation solution for businesses in the B2B segment.
In 2018, our CEO Vishal Gupta noticed that every SME-focused fintech aimed at providing working capital to businesses. Vishal and our other cofounders, Lakshmi Thampi, Ashish Mahal, and Anurag Rastogi looked at the opportunity in a different and innovative way.
They wanted to offer an automation business banking platform to B2B businesses without disturbing their existing workflows.
Instead of offering the capital straight away (to avoid challenges of finding the customer, their credit rating, NPAs, collections, etc) for the capital shortfall a business has, the masterminds of Hylobiz thought of offering an automation solution to optimize the business cashflows first.
With the understanding of the nature of the client’s business, then the vision remained to deliver other financial services like credit, capital, insurance, taxation, compliance, banking, etc on the financial service marketplace to serve the needs specific to the business.
Since 2012, the founding team of Hylobiz is in close association with Open banking automation solutions in India, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.
SMEs often operate with limited resources and find it difficult to adapt and manage technology. On the other hand, they need to work with multiple users, accounts, and ERPs which are mostly handled manually. Financial institutions get no clue about their cash position and often deny credits.
The founders of Hylobiz felt the need for a digital business automation solution to solve business needs and founded Hylobiz to help businesses with seamless business banking and enable them to connect with financial institutions easily.
