Akseleran is a peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platform with the vision of making financial inclusion a reality in Indonesia. The company helps SMEs grow their businesses and also opens up new investment opportunities for investors. They are licensed and monitored by the Financial Services Authority of Indonesia (OJK).
Akseleran is a six-year-old Indonesian fintech start-up that had raised two rounds of funding by the time it approached Skuad in June 2021. It had ambitions to grow rapidly and scale its tech team but was finding it difficult to hire skilled tech talent in Indonesia.
We wanted to scale our tech & product team rapidly but we were struggling to find good engineers in Indonesia.
Skuad helped solve this issue by enabling hiring and employment of outstanding engineers in India. Through Skuad's presence in India and with our full-stack platform, we also completely removed the hassle of payments, compliance and taxes in India where Akseleran does not have a legal entity.
Reduced time to hire
The immediate benefits were access to remote talent and reduced time-to-hire across borders. This in-turn reduced the fintech's product GTM timeline.
By Dec 2022
By December 2021, the remote tech team scaled to 10 members. For 2022, the aim is to ensure 2x growth in Akseleran's team size.
