Florence Capital

Organization Overview
Florence Capital, a multi-million-dollar tech startup, is India’s first fintech serving women exclusively. Countless Indian women desire financial inclusiveness; therefore an app was launched to provide credit quickly and safely. Florence Capital takes pride in offering 100% digital loans, with zero paperwork, all within 24 hours. The founders are Princeton alums, passionate about India’s growth story, and love operating in entrepreneurial environments. The advisory panel comprises of world legends in the fields of technology and finance, including Mr. Amit Singhal (ex worldwide Head of Google Search) and Mr. Michael Novogratz (ex Fortress Investment Group, CEO of Galaxy Group Investments). The space is custom-designed to ensure a healthy work environment, with a part of the office dedicated to rejuvenation. Florence Capital does everything to keep spirits up, so everyone is both productive and fun!

Florence Capital is working to provide credit to that 79% of the Indian population that has been denied access to traditional finance options. Hora gives cash loans to skilled blue-collar workers on its app. The team at Florence envisions a future in which all Indian women are financially independent, and providing loans is just the beginning of that journey.
