In June, slice had raised $20 million as part of its fresh funding round led by existing investors Blume Ventures, and Gunosy Capital.
slice allows users to pay bills, manage expenses and unlock rewards. It is focussed on the new age millennial and Gen Z segment, with an average age of 23, that have largely been rejected credit cards by large banks, due to inadequate credit scoring around this demographic.
It provides millennials a credit line starting from ₹10,000 up till ₹10 lakh.
