Honoring the Women leaders of tomorrow

by Narges Mohammadi

INDIA/ The seventh edition of Deloitte Global Women in the boardroom report revealed that women hold 17.1 percent of the board seats in India. Women leaders contribute skills, fresh perspectives, as well as structural and cultural diversity to the organizations, leading to more effective solutions. With a variety of perspectives, women can examine more minute details to see what is happening beneath the surface. Let’s look at 3 women who are playing the role of change in the business ecosystem.

Dr. Somdutta Singh, Founder, and CEO, of Assiduous Global Inc

Who is she?

AI-powered cross-border, cross-marketplace Ecommerce accelerator that launches and scales D2C brands across global E-commerce marketplaces. Dr. Singh holds a Ph.D. degree in Economics. She is a serial tech entrepreneur, best-selling author, and angel investor. She is also one of the Global Mentors at Google Launchpad and a Mentor of Change at Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), Govt. of India. Dr. Somdutta Singh has previously helmed ventures like Unspun Group, an AdTech company, and IRA – House of Designers, a crowdsourced fashion label on e-commerce and retail, which have been successfully acquired.

Shruti Malani, Vice President, Century Mattress and Co-Founder, Beddy

Why is she a good leader?

With a strong background in strategy and finance, she quickly took Century to a leadership position in exports of rubberized coir, consistently being awarded by the Government of India as the largest exporter in the category.  Shruti was able to sense an opportunity in the baby/child sleep solutions segment as part of her journey collaborating with Century’s international clientele.

Specific insights into global best practices relating to the field of baby mattresses coupled with pediatric recommendations on the right baby mattress led to the idea of conceptualizing the PERFECT BABY MATTRESS- safe, certified natural components, firm, waterproof and gentle to the newborn’s skin. As a result, the Idea of BEDDY culminated, giving birth to India’s first branded baby mattress. With the launch of Beddy, Shruti ventured into an entrepreneurial journey with Beddy being her Brainchild.  Shruti is now responsible for Product Design and Strategy, Branding, Sales and Marketing, and Research & Development for Beddy.

Roma Priya, Founder, Burgeon Law

Let’s know about her:

An entrepreneurial lawyer, mentor, and startup enthusiast, Roma Priya is the Founder of Burgeon Law, a new-age one-stop legal firm that supports growth, change, and innovation in India’s evolving startup ecosystem. Being the brains behind the company, she advises and mentors early-stage & high-growth startups, incubators, accelerators, angel investors, family offices, and venture capital/private equity funds. Roma has been a part of Kotak Mahindra Bank and Sandhill Counsel prior to setting up Burgeon Law.

It was during this period that Roma identified the legal issues and challenges faced by new-age companies at every step. She wanted to unlock synergies between conventional legal practices and the dynamic requirements of the rapidly changing business environment in India, with a view to eventually helping early-stage entrepreneurs build their businesses. This was when Roma came up with the idea of Burgeon Law, a startup-focused firm that – with innovation and collaboration as its core pillars – provides entrepreneurs with price-sensitive and quality legal advisory and support.
