Spare8 is a micro-investment app working strenuously on a mission to simplify the way consumers invest, spend, see and save money. The brainchild of Ronit Harisingani and Shardul Saiya, Spare8 was founded in 2021.
Spare8’s largest customer base is from tier-II cities such as Jaipur, Indore, Patna and Lucknow. It now plans to target a broader demographic that has less access to capital and less time in hand. Considering that consumers’ spending habits are continuously increasing, there is a dire need for a concrete bridge between spending and investing. Filling this gap, the product aims to cater to everyone who wants to create an effortless savings habit.
Hershel Mehta, Co-Founder, 2 am VC, said, “As a leading VC firm, we have often led funding rounds for startups with massive potential. Spare8 is one such startup! We firmly believe Spare8’s growth has been purely organic, driven by their cutting-edge technology integration and innovative approach. In fact, Spare8’s app has the fastest on-boarding process which takes less than 30 seconds! We see a great possibility for this company as it helps users create an effortless investing habit. We are confident that Spare8 will continue registering unprecedented growth and make the best of the recently raised capital.”
