Debadutta Upadhyaya picked her startup idea because it emerged from an everyday need. She wanted to solve the problem that people have to spend too much time on mundane services – from pest control to deep cleaning of cars – and not on stuff they really enjoy. Timesaverz was thus born and now operates in six cities. It’s a marketplace for household needs and services.
For Upadhyaya entrepreneurship emerged as a great outlet at a time she was forced to walk a tight rope between professional and personal life. Having a baby in a nuclear family and little support to fix all her problems, she felt a company of her own may give her the opportunity to not just build something but also become the master of her own time and life.
