Zerodha helping fintechs innovate, says Karthick Rangappa at IIM Ranchi

Rangappa was the final speaker at the institute’s leadership and industry connect series ‘Samagam’

“The landscape of Indian financial markets is changing. Zerodha is helping fintech companies shrink the timelines to innovate, and thereby allows them to focus on product development,” said Karthick Rangappa, Vice-President, equity research and education services, Zerodha, at the Indian Institute of Management Ranchi. Zerodha is an online stock-broking platform. Rangappa was the guest speaker at the institute’s leadership talk and industry connect series, ‘Samagam 1.0: Tryst with business leaders’.

“The concept of the Rainmatter incubator fund at Zerodha is niche, with no external funding, and it is benefiting start-ups to focus on what they are good at, mutually benefiting customers, start-ups and Zerodha,” he said.

The three-day event, conducted by the finance club of IIM Ranchi, Finopsis, saw nine industry leaders and experts from various strata of the corporate world impart their knowledge and share their experiences. ‘Samagam,’ an annual event, is aimed at connecting budding minds with stalwarts from industry, and engaging students with the current advancements and trends by making them aware of risks, challenges and opportunities in the field of business and entrepreneurship.
