Volopay strengthens its leadership team with the hire of Nirvikar Jain
Volopay is further strengthening its leadership team in the country with the addition of Nirvikar Jain as Global Business Officer. Jain holds a MS (Sloan fellow) from Stanford GSB and is currently co-authoring a MIT press book on fintech-led disruption. He previously worked at Citibank, First Abu Dhabi Bank (India CEO), Bank of America, as well as in key executive roles with tech startups, and in fintech advisory. As Volopay’s Global Business Officer, he will play a key role in strategising Volopay’s scalability and expansion framework in Australia through exciting partnership opportunities and fresh industry perspectives.
“I am excited by the opportunity to work with the Volopay team and expand our partners in Australia,” said Jain. “There is plenty of scope for what can be done with Volopay and we will continue building adjacent offerings and customizations that solve multiple problems for finance departments in Australia and the rest of the world. The entire Volopay team is talented, ambitious, and geared up to scale it up globally. This is just the beginning of a very exciting journey for all of us.”
Volopay recently raised US$29 million in its Series A round which included participation from JAM Fund, Winklevoss Capital Management, Rapyd Ventures, Accial Capital, fintech veteran and angel investor and Acorns founder Jeffrey Cruttenden, along with Access Ventures, Antler Global, and VentureSouq.
The funding will allow Volopay to expand its current team and business operations in Australia. The raised capital will go towards Volopay’s upcoming market launches, building and innovating new technologies to complement its existing product as well as enhancing integrations with leading enterprise software and project management applications.
