Do you have an innovative imagination?
Dear reader, do you have an innovative imagination?
If you have a knack for what we Indians dearly call "jugaad", you'll be able to escape almost every tangle in life. That said, when we talk of entrepreneurship, an innovative imagination can often become your saving grace!
They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and I believe them, whoever they are. We can all agree that a problem can be a catalyst for a solution, and that many business innovations are born of business challenges.
Infact, our startup ecosystem is known for its "jugaad" strategies! This week in the Angel Bytes section, we're bringing to you the 2nd part of our "Winter Is Coming" series where our Founding Partner, Pranav Chaturvedi, explains how retail leasing can help startups finance heavy purchases and talks of how its innovative usage saved our portfolio startup UrjaBolt from a stitch!
In other news, in this week’s CurrentOpenDeals section we present to you *drumrolls* - GoodGoodPiggy, India’s first digital piggy bank with a behaviour rewards platform. It doubles up as an investment channel to raise good good kids!
Lastly, the Future@Favcy section has open positions here at Favcy, in case you’re looking to join our boat!

This week we have GoodGoodPiggy in the house!
We are the most tech-supplied generation in history! The average time spent per child aged 5 to 17 on social media platforms is around 4 hours per child today in India. The future beholds a highly digitised and tech-driven life.
The biggest problem is that financial literacy is going down. This new generation is predicted to have 169% more debt. 97% of students do not receive financial education in school. Even 70% of Indian parents lack financial literacy!
GoodGoodPiggy is India’s first digital piggy bank with a behaviour rewards platform. It doubles up as an investment channel to raise good good kids!
In a unique mix of fintech and edtech, the GGP platform fosters good habit formation and future financial security for kids alongside providing parents with a platform to connect with and reward their child through an integrated range of investment opportunities.
We are excited to announce that Good Good Piggy is gearing up to roll out the prototype to its 1st 100 Android users by e-mail invite-only!
Earlier this year, GoodGoodPiggy was also featured on SharkTank India!
