We’re thrilled to share that our Co-founder and Executive Chairman, Vikas Nahata and our Head of Corporate Development and Investor Relations, Milena Naitoh, have been awarded Top 10 FinTech Leaders and FinTech Leaders Under 30, respectively, for their contributions to building a vibrant #fintech ecosystem in the region alongside our Co-founder and Group CEO, Nikhilesh Goel and team #OneValidus.


“The journey with the #OneValidus team has been magical. We’ve made it to the same stage twice in a row and are now a consecutive three-time winner of Top 10 FinTech Leaders. I accept this award on behalf of the entire #OneValidus team, and I am proud of what we have achieved together – steadily growing to become the #1 SME lending platform across ASEAN and now building the region’s first SME credit-led Neobank. I am because they are!” – Vikas Nahata

It’s an honour to be recognised for our fintech capabilities and for making an impact that matters. We thank the hard work and dedication of our brilliant team, as well as the unwavering trust of our partners backing our goal to drive SME financial inclusion in the region – thank you all for supporting our journey.
