At the initial stage, EnKash had collaborated with SBN India to launch its card issuance business and forged its partnerships with banking giants like Axis bank, HDFC bank, ICICI Bank, and SBI as well.

Subhasis Majumdar, a Partner at Ascent Capital was quoted saying that the investment company intends to focus on the digitalization of software and payments. Ascent Capital trusts the EnKash team members due to its past successful records that were not only based on monetary gains but also the systematic allocation of capital assets. 

This also involves structural execution plans for current projects which are expected to reach USD 500 billion-plus market in the future.

To expand the financial products with innovative offerings, EnKash plans to launch banking-as-a-service using the new funds and expand on an international level. These expansion plans involve the Middle East and South African countries where most of the newly received investment will be utilized in product and technology development.
