i do believe what india needs today is more and more of us leaving our comfort zones behind and venturing into territories where we will not only discover good things about ourselves that we never knew we possessed; equally bad things about us which we wont even admit to ourselves in front of the mirror. becoming an entrepreneur is embarking on a journey of knowing who you really are. cheers

In July 2010, she founded CARMa (Creating Access to Resources & Markets), (www.carmaconnect.in) with a lofty ambition: to change the karma of entrepreneurs in India.

She is a TED speaker.
Her best-selling book Entrepedia – a Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming an Entrepreneur in India, has touched the lives of many a start-up entrepreneur in India as evidenced by the no.of mails she receives every month. She cherishes them all but her favourite is from a 77-year old retired business man, who wrote to her saying ‘I’m angry with you that you didn’t write this book 40 years ago when I started my business.
