As a technology entrepreneur, financial literacy advocate and voice for those who don’t have one on social issues adversely impacting women in India, Rachita finds inspiration in Mother Teresa’s wisdom: “None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.”

Her relentless work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit were recognized when she was named as Chief Marketing Officer of New York-based Blue Ocean Global Technology at the age of 22.
Rachita’s initial inspiration came from pondering the question – “Why does one’s purpose of doing good have to be separate from building a real company?”She believes that a company can accomplish more in terms of a positive social impact if it is profitable and self-sufficient.
Girl Power Talk is writing a business case study for how to patiently invest in and develop the most capable young leaders. Rachita often explains that while many companies attempt to reverse-engineer women in leadership and champion gender diversity after achieving success, Girl Power Talk begins with the end in mind.
