Entrepreneurship

As an aspiring entrepreneur, I am constantly exploring learning opportunities to meet interesting people and develop important skill sets. I am also working on a few projects which are in the nascent stages that I’ll hopefully be able to share soon!

Co-Founder, Articleship

Articleship is an innovative platform to bookmark, share, and discover interesting articles and information. We are in the process of validating our idea and talking to potential users. We are also working on developing an MVP to get further feedback, and iterate solutions. My fellow co-founders are Deepshika Vinod Kumar and Ridhanya Sree.

Community Manager, IBLoT

As the Community Manager for India Biotech Leaders of Tomorrow (IBLoT), I am responsible for managing and engaging with the organization’s online community in a way that builds brand awareness.

IBLoT is a non-profit initiative aiming to foster a community of biotech leaders of tomorrow and today, to accelerate the growth of the Indian Bioeconomy. We aim to foster a community of bio-enthusiasts spanning entrepreneurs, academics, researchers, investors, and policymakers to build connections, enable collaborations, and initiate conversations between biotech leaders of today and tomorrow.

I also organize and host informative talks and events with prominent members of the global bio economy. Previous guests include Srikant Sastri, and Harsha Ohri and Lakshmi Santhosh Maithel.

International Student Delegate – ASES Summit ’21 (Stanford University)

I was invited as one of the 30 international student delegates chosen from top universities across the globe to attend ASES Summit, a premier conference on global entrepreneurship held at Stanford University. This event culminated in a hackathon and presentation in front of a panel of prominent Bay Area Venture Capitalists.

Delegate – Design Nation ’21 (Princeton University)

I was selected to take part in the week-long Design Nation Conference, organized by Princeton University’s Business Today with the aim of empowering the next generation of creative talent. I attended panel discussions, lectures, workshops, and executive seminars (small group discussions with top executives).

Youth Delegate – Confederation Of Young Leaders (CYL) & Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO)

I was selected as one of the 50 representatives from India for the ‘India and Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Member Nation Youth Entrepreneurship Forum’, co-facilitated by the Confederation of Young Leaders (CYL) with the People’s Republic of China. The aim of the program is to lay the foundation of a robust partnership between young entrepreneurs on both sides as well players active in the start-up ecosystem of both countries.

Publicity Strategist – Shaastra (Indian Institute of Technology Madras)

I spearheaded a team of 10 that conducted press conferences and published over 100 articles in leading Indian newspapers, and got exceptional coverage on television news channels, for Shaastra, the annual technical festival of IIT Madras. I also conducted a pan-India science conference called ‘Spark’ to reach out to school students across the country, which saw a participation of over 3000 students. In addition to this, I created content for social media, websites, press releases, and brochures.
