BIO of Sampad Swain

Hi! I'm Sampad Swain, ​CEO & Co-founder of Instamojo​, India's largest on-demand payments platform that powers 200,000+ individuals & SMEs to accept online payments with just a bank account & phone number. I have spent almost a decade understanding & serving Indian SMEs which led to the core mission of Instamojo. That is to democratise payments and be the 360º digital-enabling partner for businesses of all shapes & sizes. Instamojo​ ​was originally incubated in Silicon Valley as part of 500Startups accelerator program. Previously, I co​-founded​ Wanamo, a marketing platform for hyperlocal SMBs which was later acquired. Prior to that, I have ​worked across FMCG, consumer internet & media. I even got a degree in electronics engineering and MBA, although I personally believe I have more nerd DNA than MBA. These days, I spend most of my time planning & executing product & growth related areas at Instamojo with some of the smartest folks around. Other part is to wear the CEO and Chief Evangelism Officer's (CEO) hat whereby I meet & learn from some of the most savvy business folks in the ecosystem. Last month, we released our native mobile app that I'm pretty excited about (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instamojo.app). Our mobile app is first of its kind that allows anyone across India to just download and start accepting all forms of payments like cards, net-banking, wallets, UPI in few minutes via SMS, WhatsApp, Email, Facebook etc on-the-go​ without any physical paperwork or website integration. Isn't it awesome! We call it "On-Demand Payments". Happy to chat about product development, hiring and retention, product distribution and design & data analytics. Let’s chat!
