Drip Capital, Inc., a global trade finance company offering digital financing solutions to small and medium businesses, is pleased to announce that Anil Gopinath has joined the leadership team as its new Head of Technology.
An industry veteran of over 20 years, Anil has previously worked at early-stage companies as part of the founding team, as well as mid-sized startups and large companies like Yahoo and AWS. His technical expertise and leadership will help shape and guide Drip Capital’s next growth phase while also building a team of highly skilled technology experts to continue the transition of Drip Capital into a fully digital trade finance company.
Pushkar Mukewar, CEO and Co-founder of Drip Capital, commented, “Anil brings a wealth of technical knowledge along with him and with his extensive technical leadership skills, I’m sure he is going to be an invaluable asset in helping us deliver against our ambitious growth. We are thrilled to welcome him to the team, and I look forward to working with him as he takes charge of our technology function to create the next generation of our digital trade finance products.”

So, enabling an environment in which SMEs flourish worldwide is critical to the health of the market economy. Towards achieving this goal, Drip Capital develops a product that provides time-critical capital and innovative finance solutions to small businesses worldwide. I’m excited to join Drip Capital, as the company begins to develop the next generation of its digital products that provides new financial models for our customers, scale out to new regions, increase operational efficiency and manage risk at a global scale.”
