The new generation of purchasing is here, and it’s changing everything consumers know about when to buy what they want
AUSTIN, Texas, March 13, 2023 (Newswire.com)
SXSW continues to be the innovator’s launching pad, especially when launching a first in the fintech space. SaveAway’s pioneering Founder and CEO, Om Kundu, will host the Fintech and E-Commerce Meetup on Tuesday from 2:30-3:30 p.m. CT at the Hilton Austin Downtown (Room 404).
SaveAway has emerged as a conscious capital leader focused on technologies for a radically better tomorrow. SaveAway is a purpose-driven “save now, buy later” fintech company obsessed with creating the conditions for all to make better purchasing decisions that will protect from long-term financial obstacles and potential ruin.
“It’s an honor to facilitate and welcome all to harness ‘The Great Reset’, where we will reimagine retail, e-commerce and fintech. These meetups are truly one-of-a-kind and provide an opportunity for all of us to get involved,” Kundu said. “It’s a moment for us to expand what we are doing and how we look to solve big issues for a better future.”
In an instant satisfaction world, inflation has driven prices up, and consumer credit card debt is as high as it’s been since 2008 and 2019, just when major financial crisis hit. According to a recent Lending Tree article, Americans have over $986B of credit card debt (over $7,200 average per cardholder) and are on pace to reach the trillion-dollar mark for the first time in history this year.
SaveAway has set out to make everyday purchases and the unaffordable, affordable without debt or regret.
Q1 2023 catapulted SaveAway. Kundu was selected by NYCEDC to participate in the Founders Fellowship for the QC Tech Incubator cohort. The NYCEDC Founders Fellowship Program addresses inequalities in the startup ecosystem by supporting tech entrepreneurs from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Kundu was invited to facilitate at the National Retail Federation Retails Big Show 2023 in January, where he led the discussion on Retail Evolution/Transformation.
SXSW Meetups are one-of-a-kind experiences. The Fintech and E-Commerce Meetup facilitated by Kundu is an opportunity to get involved in ‘The Great Reset’ to reimagine retail in ways that are more purposeful. It’s not about whether or not you want that new laptop, watch, fitness equipment or purse– it’s about when is the best time for you to make that purchase. SaveAway believes it is when you have planned to be able to afford it without going into debt.
SaveAway has been featured on Finovate, Yahoo Finance, Startup Grind, Finextra, NY Tech Alliance, Forbes, Pay Think, Startup Buzz and more. Named Top Fintech Forward Company To Watch by American Banker. Inspirave’s patented SaveAway social saving and retail e-commerce platform empowers Saving More to afford important purchases responsibly, without the necessity of credit (which becomes the slippery slope to debt for far too many.) With over 12,000 having signed up to gain early access, SaveAway with INSPIRAVE represents V-1.0 of an end-to-end ecosystem to fundamentally re-imagine retail e-commerce, unifying intelligent financial planning with the path-to-purchase: one in which the groundswell against instant-gratification and debt is manifest through the social edifice of relentless consumer advocacy and innovation to further financial wellness.

Issuers, intermediaries, and investors in South Africa to benefit from Proxymity’s market-leading and fully connected voting infrastructure.
The Citi connection in South Africa, along with the live connection to Computershare issuers directly connects the market to real-time, transparent communications.
LONDON, England, March 13, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Proxymity, the leading digital investor communications platform, announced today that they have entered into an agreement with Citi Securities Services to go live in South Africa with their transformative digital proxy voting service, Vote Connect Total. The fully connected service will enable Citi’s clients in the region to benefit from Proxymity’s unique ability to convey golden source announcements, real-time voting and vote confirmations across the entire proxy voting ecosystem. The service will go live in April and is another landmark in the Citi -Proxymity relationship.
Through the Citi and Proximity connection and Proxymity’s live connection to Computershare issuers, issuers and their international investors in the market for the first time will be directly connected to real-time, transparent communications.
The rollout in South Africa continues the trend of rapid global growth for Proxymity. Deployment in South Africa represents the first market in the region to go fully live with Vote Connect Total, following successful collaborations between Proxymity and Citi across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Citi clients in the region now also gain access to Proxymity’s digital platform to receive electronic meeting announcements and votes instantly and accurately, enabling them to service their clients in near real time.
Proxymity Vote Connect Total is a market-leading solution to calls from issuers, intermediaries and investors demand for increased transparency, allowing investor communications to be delivered in real time and error-free through the full chain of ownership using “golden source” data. Proxymity’s digital proxy voting service removes friction by remedying the inefficiencies of existing voting channels, at time of increased shareholder involvement in company governance and global economic uncertainty.
These improvements will be felt across the South African market as issuers, intermediaries, and investors alike benefit from unrivalled transparency, and up to five more days for investors to make critical decisions on investments.
The Network Forum Africa meeting, taking place in Johannesburg from the 14-15 March, is a further indication of the growth of the South African market. The preeminent post-trade and custody gathering, of which Proxymity and Citi are both event partners, will see Proxymity CEO Dean Little speak on a panel entitled “Proxy Voting in the Region, How to Automate and Simplify,” with today’s announcement a milestone in realising this ambition.
Proxymity was supported by Citi Venture’s D10XSM program, an internal accelerator that supports the creation, development and launch of new concepts by employees across Citi businesses. The platform was first launched following a collaborative pilot partnership, and the company was spun out by Citi in April 2020.
Dean Little, Co-Founder and CEO, Proxymity, said: “Our deep and sustained relationship with Citi has proven immensely successful across the UK and Europe. We are excited to translate this success to the South African market, allowing Citi’s clients unprecedent access to a real-time, transparent proxy voting service ahead of a pivotal voting season where shareholders are demanding more from their boardrooms than ever before. Citi is an established custodian in South Africa, and we look forward to providing further value and transparency for their clients in the region.”
“The provision of Proxymity in South Africa reflects Citi’s commitment to providing the most innovative solutions to improve client experience and bringing efficiencies to the local markets. Through the simplification of processes and platforms, clients are now able to benefit from the synergies of leveraging the same proxy solution utilised in the UK and Europe.” said Masha Maharaj, Citi’s Cluster Head for Sub Saharan Africa and the Securities Services Head for South Africa.“
