Reel heroines can be found for a dime and a plenty.
But where are the “real” ones?
Right here; on International Women’s Day, it’s time for us to toast these five successful, entrepreneurial leading ladies who have paved their way to success with unique business ideas.
Neha Bagaria, Jobsforher
A successful working professional who took a career break to raise her two children.
Does the story sound familiar?
But wait, you haven’t heard what she did next. Instead of bemoaning her fate, she became committed to the idea of helping women restart their careers, as she herself had encountered all the difficulties of the journey, first hand.
In a nutshell, that’s the story of Neha Bagaria and Jobsforher.
Shaifali Agarwal, Easyfix
There’s a leaking tap at home and you need a plumber desperately. You have just moved into a new home, need woodwork to be completed but a carpenter is nowhere in sight. What do you do? Give up? Vent?
Not a chance, if you happen to be Shaifali Agarwal. What you do is leverage technology and start Easy fix to solve the problem of available handy workmen with initial funding from your husband- to- be. You also branch out into the B2B services marketplace and expand to serve over 75+ satisfied clients and counting.
Purba Kalita, Salebhai
Do you miss those incredible namkeens, chaats and sweets you get only in your hometown? How about those trademark wellness products or even paintings & puja items to herald festivals?
Well, fret not.
Purba Kalita and her co-founders are here. Salebhai is a platform which propagates this back-to-roots philosophy in a single site with over 8500 products sourced from over 100 cities and 300 select vendors that caters to over 17 diasporas communities living in India & abroad.
Neetu Bhatia, KyaZoonga
What happens when your parents want you to become a cricketer and you aspire to be an engineer?
Neeru Bhatia would say marry both and found India’s first and largest entertainment and sports ticketing company, KyaZoonga!
Being a national level cricketer and an MIT grad, you could say she knows the business both from top down as well as bottoms up!
Shivani Aggarwal, Formula Group
She’s been there from when Formula group was founded way back in 2004.
She’s been a part of the formation process as well. And ever since, she has been supporting, creating infrastructure and developing business for the company. She also front ends managing sales within foreign companies already in India as well as liaises with new SMEs coming into India.
