AI-powered Enterprise SaaS platform Actyv.ai has announced the appointment of senior leaders.
The company has strengthened the team by adding two senior members: Prakash Dara, Executive Vice President, Scoring & New Credit Products and Manish Gupta, Strategic Advisor.
Commenting on the appointments, Raghunath Subramanian, Co-Founder, Global CEO and Executive Chairman, Actyv.ai said, “I am delighted to expand our senior leadership team at Actyv.ai. As category creators in the AI-powered Enterprise SaaS with B2B BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) embedded, we are sure this empowers us to drive large-scale transformation in the supply chain ecosystem across geographies. With the expanded team we will now be focusing on building our business globally, starting with India.”
Prakash, a CA, CS and CWA, has over 23 years of experience in the banking sector. He has been the Executive Vice-President and Business Head at Kotak Mahindra Bank across multiple verticals. After his long stint with Kotak, he was associated with Mango Advisors LLP as a partner and is the Co-Founder of Flint Consulting LLP an investment banking firm.
Prakash Dara said, “I am thrilled to be a part of the Actyv.ai team, who are trying to simplify and make credit accessible to the B2B segment. Despite being the backbone of the country’s economy, 80% of the MSMEs lack formal access to credit. Through Actyv.ai, we are on a mission to change the game by empowering these enterprises with hassle-free credit in order to help them run an efficient business.”

Manish Gupta said “Having been an integral part of the FMCG industry for over 20 years, I understand the growth opportunity that can be unlocked for all the players in the value chain. It’s intuitively simple - easy access to capital creates easy access to brand availability at stores! This virtuous cycle creates new business, new jobs and helps propel the national economic engine. I look forward to doing my bit towards building this connected ecosystem - Actyv.ai, FIs, Brand owning Enterprises and their distributors & retailers."
