Simran Oberoi Multani, Founder of Ovenderful, shares that having met Sheryl Sandberg personally has made a big difference to her. “An inspirational woman is one who reflects courageous leadership as well as knows the value of uplifting other women. She is secure and confident in her abilities, and does not hesitate to create more women leaders. Sheryl embodies that for me. It is easy to be a leader who has many followers. But it is more difficult to be a leader, who many other leaders follow too. She is exactly that – a woman who leads by her actions and not just ideas!”

“If I must mention one person, it would be ‘ME’”, says Bistriti Poddar, Founder of Paperless Postcards.

“I was an underdog and got written off at the inception of my career by my seniors. After a turbulent childhood, a bitter divorce and then abandonment by family, I was left with no choice but to pack my bags and leave my hometown; Delhi. I came to Bombay with a red suitcase and truckload of courage. This world is a difficult place for a woman who has dreams and a mind. But not for women like me who are stubborn, stubborn enough to alter her destiny!”, she shares adding that she had to go through several adversities and nights to rebuild herself.

“The one thing I am proud of is not my success, it’s my strength. Paperless Postcards is not a product of talent, it’s a product of tenacity!” she added.
