As a result, consumers, purchasers, and business ventures of today are predominantly dependent on credit to run their businesses smoothly and efficiently. Credit availability and acceptance of an offer lie in your credit score, which means an excellent credit score will be quintessential to avail loans and credit for the purchase and bespoke.

Additionally, a credit score acts as a touchstone to present a more responsible image of you in the eyes of prospective employers.

The startup is targeting to launch its first product, a credit management platform and build a team with the incoming funds. It will also invest in technologies that will help it differentiate itself from other players present in this space. 

Cred was founded by Kunal Shah; by 2021, the company had onboarded over 5.9 million users and processed about 20% of all credit card bill payments in India. As of April 2021, Cred offered six different products – Cred RentPay, Cred Cash, Cred Pay, Cred Store, and Cred Travel Store, etc. However, on 20 August 2021, Cred also launched a Peer to Peer(P2P) lending feature known as Cred Mint that aims to monetise through its 7.5 million users. 

Born in July 2019. Founded by experienced professionals from the financial services industry, the company aims to educate and empower Indian consumers with smart credit behavior.
