The enterprise debt market in India has 3 million SMEs, contributing 40% of the GDP but constituting only 11% of the bond market. While a lot of attention has been given to the consumer lending space through a slew of FinTechs and new-age NBFCs, the enterprise debt requirements have mostly remained a white-space. With over 65000Cr+ transactions, 500+ lenders, 1000+ borrowers and a 40% market share in MLDs, Vivriti Capital is one of the few players that is disrupting the enterprise debt ecosystem by building a full-stack SME debt platform and in this episode of Stride Stories, we go behind-the-scenes with the man behind this disruptive venture – Vineet Sukumar, Founder and Managing Director of Vivriti Capital. Graduating from IIM Bangalore, Vineet accumulated experiences with Tata Administrative Services, Standard Chartered Bank and IFMR Capital. In 2017, he took the leap to the hardships of entrepreneurship to start Vivriti Capital, a venture that has been profitable since the first year of its operations and delinquency rates less than 0.3%. The Vivriti Group has under its umbrella 3 verticals – CredAvenue (tech-based debt platform), Vivriti Asset Management and Vivriti Capital.
