A University of California, Los Angeles alumnus, Manik brings rich business development and product engineering experience in the hi-tech product space across US and Asian markets.

Innoviti has been a pioneer in solving tough real-world payment problems. The Payments and Consumer lending business drives Innoviti’s uniPAY product to solve two problems, a) reducing the cost of accepting electronic payments for a seller and b) improving money supply for a buyer at the point of purchase. The company today processes over Rs. 10,000 Cr. of payment transactions, reducing cost for the seller in every transaction. It further helps originate consumer loans worth Rs. 600 Cr. at the point of purchase.
“We wanted to bring talent from an industry that uses high-end technology and operates in a hyper-competitive market. We are excited about Ravi joining us and bringing his expertise in product engineering and business development with the US semiconductor industry to Innoviti. We believe this will propel our leadership in the payment solutions space to an altogether different level,” said Mr. Rajeev Agrawal, CEO, Innoviti.
“I’m thrilled to join Innoviti at a time when the company is growing exponentially and leading the development of some truly innovative payment solutions in the Indian market. I look forward to working with Innoviti’s highly experienced team to drive our common goals, ” said Mr. Ravi Manik.
