Rohit Taneja is the Founder & CEO of Decentro, a full-stack API banking platform for financial integrations. A fintech serial entrepreneur with over 6 years of experience, he founded Decentro in the pursuit of simplifying the product integration cycle by ~10X and reducing capital expenditure by ~80%.
Decentro is backed by notable names such as Y Combinator and Plug & Play, along with angel investors.
Prior to this, Rohit, an IIT graduate, co-founded his first venture Mypoolin in 2015, which was the country’s first social payments platform and a payments infrastructure provider. After raising two rounds of funding, Mypoolin was acquired by a California-based global payments player Wibmo in 2017, which in turn was acquired by Naspers-backed PayU in 2019.
As the Director of Engineering, he had encountered the same hurdles when leading the India and SEA markets in terms of their payment gateway and banking integrations, which inspired him to raise a solution.
