Divya Gokulnath, Co-founder of BYJUS
BYJU’S – The Learning App, founded by Divya Gokulnath, successfully combined her passion for teaching with the needs of students to create an education technology and online tutoring enterprise. She began her professional career by instructing at Byju Raveendran’s coaching workshops. They quickly became life and business partners after forming a company in 2011.
Divya stresses the importance of learning “how to learn” rather than “what to study.” The concept of online lessons was born in 2015, but it had a stronger favorable impact on students during the shutdown when their popularity reached new heights.
Byju Raveendran and Divya Gokulnath were ranked 46th on an India Rich List in 2020, with a net worth of $3.05 billion (about INR 22.3 thousand crores).
Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Founder of Biocon Limited
Kiran Mazumdar has achieved clinical research by utilizing India’s domestic scientific potential. She learned about breweries in Melbourne in 1975 and began looking for work in India, but was unsuccessful and was informed that “it’s a man’s work.”
Leslie Auchincloss, the founder of Biocon Biochemicals Ltd (a firm that makes enzymes for brewing, textiles, and food packaging), was searching for an Indian entrepreneur to start a subsidiary in India. Kiran was drawn to the possibility and founded Biocon in the garage of her Bengaluru rented house with a capital of Rs. 10,000.
She had financial difficulties because no venture capital was available in India, forcing her to develop a revenue-based business strategy. After several setbacks, she received her first financial backing. Within a year, Biocon India became the first Indian company to manufacture enzymes and sell them to the United States and Europe.
She oversaw Biocon’s transformation from an industrial enzyme manufacturer to a fully integrated biopharmaceutical firm focused on chronic diseases, where medical needs are mostly unmet, and treatment costs are high.
Sheetal Ramkumar, Founder & CEO of WhiteGlobe
Sheetal Ramkumar is a fearless businesswoman who is a leader in India’s Language Service Provider Industry (LSPI). Sheetal believes in taking chances and has outstanding leadership abilities. She saw an opening in the disorganized LSPI. She filled the void by establishing a professionally managed language services company that assisted in breaking down language barriers and supporting businesses worldwide.
Her path was fraught with difficulties, as it was very fragmented, and there were no codified ways for evaluating the skill of language experts. She spent a lot of time and effort establishing a multi-dimensional tool to test the competency of language experts and then collaborate with them to provide high-quality services to businesses worldwide (depending on their proficiency).
Akanksha Chaturvedi, Founder & CEO of Eduauraa Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
Akanksha Chaturvedi launched Eduauraa, an Edtech enterprise that provides high-quality education at an accessible price, intending to change the education landscape in India. She wants to make Eduauraa a household name and make high-quality education available to everyone, not just the wealthy. To reach a larger audience on an OTT platform, we teamed exclusively with ZEE5 (75 million users). By digitally disrupting premium education at a reasonable price, she has become a pioneer in the EdTech business.
Eduard provides educational information in Hindi and English for popular state boards. Students in grades 6 through 10 can purchase packages that provide them access to their entire course material for a fraction of the cost of private instruction. Students can also access video lectures, e-books, exam papers, and other resources. Premium customers also access 1.25 million hours of entertainment across genres and languages.

Khushboo Jain, Co-Founder, and COO, ImpactGuru.com
With her crowdfunding platform, Khushboo Jain co-founded Impact Guru to aid the people of India. It was founded in 2015 by Maneka Gandhi, the Union Cabinet Minister for Women and Children. In 15 nations, the site has raised over 1500 crores. Khushboo Jain leads the marketing, communication, and design teams. In India, she was named to the Fortune 40 Under 40 list.
