SHRADHA SHARMA (FOUNDER & CEO - YOURSTORY)

Shradha Sharma, the Founder, and CEO of YourStory is a courageous entrepreneur who was bold enough to call it quits while working for a famous media house like CNBC in Mumbai. While working she had the opportunity to interview several entrepreneurs and learn about their success stories. She wanted to feature these success stories but several channels rejected this idea. This is when she noticed that a million stories are storming around but there is no platform to cover them.

While working for CNBC, Shradha started YourStory as blog one night. She was well exposed to the business practices of news channels and newspapers so she applied the same here. Soon the platform turned into India’s biggest platform for start-ups and entrepreneurs related stories. 

Today the website has over 70,000 stories and serves the content over 11 local languages. Shradha’s motive is to share the roller coaster of emotions an entrepreneur goes through. She was awarded the L’Oreal Paris Femina Award and was included in the list of Worlds’ Top 500 LinkedIn Influencers. In 2019, she got to interview Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India. Shradha is one of the most successful and influential women entrepreneurs in India.

The team works from all over India to bring the best and the brightest Women Entrepreneurs into the limelight they deserve. The YourStory Team brings people stories of entrepreneurs and change-makers, funding analyses, resource pieces and the first glimpse of emerging trends from India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, as well as profiles of great businesses and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
