With an enormous presence, Neelam captivates a room with a fast paced summary of what she envisions for her company from what details should be included on men’s shirts in next year’s collection to size and layout of the massive production space Industree would provide for many of the artisan production units they incubate.
Grassroots Business Fund invested in Industree because they are an emerging market medium size social enterprise with significant growth potential. I consider myself considerably lucky to have been placed in a position not just work alongside such an impressive person, but to also have an opportunity to directly impact almost every aspect of a company on the verge of growth and one that I could get excited about. Furthermore, I was located in Bangalore, a city rich in history, culture and food. Geographically, Bangalore is also is fairly central in southern India, providing ready access to a some wonderful destinations. On the weekends, with other WDI fellows as well as with friends from Bangalore, my girlfriend and I travelled to Kerala, Hampi. Below are a few videos from those trips as well as one video of my entire experience (Click on titles of each photo)
