This needs high momentum and laser sharp focus, which will be led by our new and thoughtful leadership. I founded Spice Money with a vision to digitally and financially empower rural India. I am grateful to have found partners in our senior leaders at Spice Money, who understand and share this vision. We want to encourage an entrepreneurial culture through this co-founder approach and I am confident that our momentum will be continued and in fact, accelerated.
