Sankaet Pathak came to the US from India to study Computer Engineering, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics at the University of Memphis. His experience of not being able to open a bank account due to his immigrant status, prompted him to launch a financial services company that could reduce barriers to entry for underbanked or unbanked individuals. Through his efforts, Sankaet found that the true barrier to entry was an outdated infrastructure which kept everyday folks from accessing best-in-class financial products. Today, Synapse services over 1.8 million end-users and processes over $10 billion in deposits. Many of Synapse's clients are early to late stage FinTech companies offering innovative financial solutions that are both accessible and affordable for end users.
