, Top 3 Global Tech Awards by Accenture
and Finalist in Start-Up World Cup India Finale
. Today, the start-up has co-founders, shareholders, expansion investor, logistics partners and employees.
There are no big secrets in doing start-up but consistency, focus, finding your niche, and a lot of hard work. Kathleen understands the game and she’s a calculative risk taker.

She received a scholarship for Masters in Business from a private equity firm and currently, she is studying her MBA at the University of Wollongong through an international school, PSB Academy in Singapore.
“I do not have a time for drama and gossips. What I have a time is to build the family business and to solve every problem. My character is always mistaken as ‘too proud’ because I’m outspoken and I can be confrontational but I’m not argumentative and I do not compete unnecessarily. I’m always has been respectful and supportive, I choose my fight, the right competition, and I always try to help others recognize their fullest potential.”
Kathleen’s big dreams are to be a venture capitalist and to help start-up founders to build their business.
I love pink and everything feminine.
