34; CEO, Pipa + Bella, Indian-based online customizable fashion jewelry company
Toughest obstacle you’ve overcome? Dealing with a strong patriarchal mindset in the jewelry industry as well as in the investor community in India, both of which are largely male-driven and male-centric.
Role model? I have quite a few, and I look up to different people for tackling different challenges. Lately, I have been following Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn. I love how he has not only defined the vision of his company and transfused his own values into the organization, but also successfully ensured that those values trickle down throughout the organization.
