Medha Mukerji and Madhu Sharma talks about their ideas and experience around courage

Courage has no specific form and knows no bounds. From starting a side project to the act of listening when you would rather interject, every day we are wrapped in opportunities to exercise courage

About the speaker

About Medha :

“As far as my background is concerned, I started to work when I was 21. I had started my career in 2010 with BNP Paribas Wealth Management as a support to Business Development and continued with with Glaxo Smithkline Consume Health Care in their Accounting Control/Tax/ Commercial department.

I have also worked as a General Secretary to an NGO called Human Child Age Care Educational Society during the year (reg) 2013 - 2015

When I was at BNP Paribas, I would be editing their product notes and pitches for the clients. Soon enough, I knew that before I do an MBA and then start my own company, I had rather have the experience, and vision of exactly what I want to do, and then study further that would help and enhance my business.

I had taken my GMAT once and scored well enough to get through an Ivy League, but only a finance course would suit my kind of profile. I wasn’t ok with that.

I incorporated the company in June 2015. I never saw this as a startup, but I always envisioned Feministaa as a company, where I would retain my team members, have a motivated ambience, and have a huge office in a glass building!“
