HOW IT ALL STARTED
It all began when Lavika, a 20-year-old, was trying to understand investments and realised she was never taught anything about finance or investing money.
Pondering over this unsettling thought made her adamant about bringing a change so other teens don't feel lost when they grow up.
Then came in, Sajal and they both started brainstorming on this. He was a credit card user since the age of 15 who had read books like 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' and was inspired to make this idea a reality.
After conceptualising the idea, came the important part of execution to make the dream possible. So, to enable the idea with technology, Jagveer joined hands and together they all started Akudo in August 2020.
Born from a scary thought of not knowing anything to a super-simplified vision of a learning-focused banking experience for teenagers, right from the start.
