A Short Bio

Having started her career with Human Resources, joined her family business. She was passionate about Fashion & Shopping which led her to start her own company Shaadi Sakhi.

How The Idea Hit Her
I used to take all our NRI family friends for Wedding shopping and managed to give them best services and choices. We used to travel to South Mumbai or western suburbs to attend all exclusive Bridal Exhibitions.
I realised that there was no elite exhibition happening in the Central suburbs and hence the idea clicked about starting Shaadi Sakhi Exhibitions in Aug 2013 at Matunga CR,Mumbai. Subsequently we started Shaadi Sakhi Art Gallery in March 2014 giving Exhibition space to Designers.

Her Challenges and How She Won Over Them
My biggest challenge was getting Exhibitors for Art Gallery during the Startup phase since we had a new location.
We got in touch with various exhibitors all over Mumbai through various modes of communication like Social media,, messaging, advertisements and subsequently through Word of mouth.
Later popularization was done by
Word of Mouth
