Investment Strategy

Omidyar Network India believes in the power of technology to make financial products more affordable, accessible, and convenient for underserved customers. We invest in bold entrepreneurs who build innovative financial products and services that improve the financial health of the next half billion and MSMEs. We also invest in digital enablers and market infrastructure that can catalyze digital financial inclusion. Our dual cheque-book approach also allows us to support research to understand and address structural impediments to financial inclusion.

Our work focuses on the following themes

Innovative models in responsible credit, savings and insurance that can improve the financial health of the Next Half Billion

Disruptive models serving MSMEs in liquidity management, asset creation, income generation, efficiency improvements and risk mitigation

B2B companies that help incumbent financial institutions in digital transformation and strengthen their ability to address underserved customer segments
