Our co-founder Sandhya UC (@sandhyauc) was invited for a fireside chat by the Indian School of Business on the occasion of Women’s Day.
Although Sandhya was initially invited as a keynote speaker for the women’s day program at ISB she couldn’t go to their campus.
This was a fireside chat that happened online between Sandhya and another entrepreneur Saloni Sacheti who is working with tribal women of India to make products out of Bamboo.
Sandhya shares: “In the conversation, we broadly covered topics like motherhood, challenges we face in entrepreneurship, working long distance, and how people perceive work-life balance.
The audience had a lot of people who have trekked with Indiahikes, so they had questions about Indiahikes, how we go about our work, green trails, our safety protocols, and how we document our treks. There were a lot of things which they wanted to know about.
Since ISB itself has a lot of women working at the managerial level they would go through similar situations. So the purpose of this talk was to help them learn from our entrepreneurial experience and gain value from it in the future.”
Sandhya has been a huge pioneer in growing Indiahikes over the years, we’re really happy that the young students and management of a prestigious institute like ISB honoured her journey.
We hope that the learnings she shared inspire many young entrepreneurs in the future. :)
