According to Monika Halan, Author of Let’s Talk Money
Considering the fast-paced era we are living in today, it’s very important for millennials to start saving early in life. Although it’s advisable to not get too ambitious about saving all at once. Instead one should divide his/her salary in three types of accounts – inflows, consumption and saving/investment. This way it will be easier to set yourself to start saving.

Money is one of the most enigmatic subjects. Just thinking of it evokes a wide variety of emotions. Most young Indians find handling money to be complex. On top of that, the financial services industry has heavily jargonized everything to drive a knowledge wedge between itself and consumers. The need of the hour is to make the subject simple, easy, relate-able, relevant & automated.
Sqrrl is making honest and differentiated efforts to help millennials save and grow their money effortlessly! It is using automation as a tool to help users make saving money, a habit; be it saving up for a dream holiday, their startup or any one of the several hundred reasons one might need money for. Started in March 2017, Sqrrl reached the milestone of 2,00,000+ users within a fairly short span and is expanding aggressively, making new inroads across more cities. Sqrrl is also the world’s first mobile app platform, in the finance space, operating in Hindi, and currently supports in a total of 9 Indian languages.
