Till a few years back, FinTech was a relatively new industry in India, but today it is seeing rapid growth. Fueled by an innovation-driven startup ecosystem, huge market base, and friendly government regulations and policies, a number of startups are entering this dynamic sector.
In 2018, the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) reported that around 400 FinTech firms operated in India. NASSCOM also predicts that India’s FinTech software market will double on the current rate of growth and touch US$ 2.4 billion by 2020. As a startup, how can you navigate through the complex FinTech business environment? What are the dos and don’ts of scaling your FinTech startup? All this and more will be answered at this year's AWS FinTech Day.
