We are a professional services firm dedicated to helping build innovative & profitable financial services businesses
At Vedanvi, we believe that true transformation in financial services is only possible through new ventures, either created by start-ups or intrapreneurial ventures launched by traditional but progressive financial services firms.
Our mission is to support entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs build innovative financial services propositions that bring about a meaningful change. We want to inspire you to build the next Amazon, Google or Air BnB in the world of financial services.
We’ve literally helped found an innovative alternative finance entrepreneurial venture, advised new age players on how to get market traction, sat on their board, help raise finance and get regulatory approval. We are also actively involved in helping Fintech firms run and grow their ventures in a way that maximise their market valuation.
Let’s face it, “Vedanvi” is an unusual name. We based our firm name on the word “Veda”.
Veda are a large body of text originating in India, some 5000 years ago. The word Veda itself means knowledge, and they are known to encapsulate all human knowledge, known and yet to be known. The Vedas are said to reveal how the universe works.
In the spirit of the Vedas, our mission is to:
- Use wisdom and insight to see beyond the known and help you break boundaries.
- Help you make a meaningful difference in the world of finance and the lives of your customers.
- Help you succeed and fulfill your higher purpose.
Here’s what our Clients say about working with us
“We just couldn’t have launched this venture without Vedanvi. They built our business with the same devotion and attention to detail as if it were their own business. Without them, it would have taken us more than 3 years to get to where they got us to in just 11 months!”
Terry Fisher, CEO, Huddle Capital Ltd
“Vedanvi has helped us build a solid business foundation on which to scale our business. They helped us develop our processes and systems in support of our regulatory application. Based on their advice and the strength of our team, I was surprised at the much higher valuation Peerfunding achieved on our first fundraising round. For us, Vedanvi brought a truly holistic solution, always bringing our success at the center of their delivery”
Tony Hedger, CEO, Peeriunding Ltd
