Acording to Kothari, Cube Wealth is aiming to becomes profitable by the time it goes for a Series B fundraise, that is roughly 18 months from now.

“We are targeting the upper middle class segment of users who have an income of ₹10 lakh per annum and above and want to make financial planning easy and jargon-free,” said Kothari, in a statement given to LiveMint.com.

The startup currently employs 15 people, mostly engineers, and will look to hire more in the next year, although it targets at keeping the employee count below 50. The Cube team comes with a background in digital payments, personal finance, and design. They have worked with market giants like Apple, Frogdesign, Yahoo!, Intuit, Citrus Pay, American Express, HSBC Bank, Disney, Zynga and First Data to hone our skills for Cube.

The Cube team has previously released a mobile app for bill payments called, ‘Cube Bills’, that has garnered over 2.5 million downloads and exceptional ratings in the App Store and Google Play store.
