Leveraging India’s potential to build world-changing companies

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has!” Gigi is driven by this quote by anthropologist Margaret Mead. She is passionate about building a team rooted in trust, respect, and innovative strategies. Her ability to cultivate strong partnerships and relationships is one of her superpowers.

With over 17 years of experience building companies from the ground up and as a serial entrepreneur herself, Gigi works with her team in India to drive sustainable innovation in the current ecosystem by building new ventures at critical levers of the textile industry.

Gigi has successfully led start-ups and worked in key roles, from Marketing Head for a large multinational measurement and automation company to co-founder of a technology company that builds safety systems for railroads. She also built platforms like Makeher Movement for women’s empowerment and took board positions in various non-profits.
