A well-known name in the startup and corporate sector for over 12+ years, Tanushree has left an immensely positive impact in all the places she has worked. She did her Masters, PG in International Business from WTC.
Her Mantra – “confidence is not just a feeling, but core perceptions of ourselves.” She’s someone with a golden touch, and her touch turns things positive and impacting.
Dynamic, multi-tasker, and an influencer would be the best way to describe Tanushree. She’s someone who always works on the grassroots level to support people on various fronts. With a belief in the ideology of doing good, she leaves an impact where ever she worked, and that is what makes her special.
She is currently working on her dream project LoveActually.Me, a social enterprise focusing on people with disabilities (PWDs). Her motto of starting LoveActually.Me is to foster independence among PWDs on the social and professional front and bring behavioural change among people to treat PWDs with equality.
The LoveActually.Me work with an online and offline approach. Online they are coming up with an inclusive socializing app and offline they have been doing interesting activity iGNiTE – An Evening With PWDs, focusing on the performing arts skills of people with disabilities and boosting their confidence. She is personally mentoring one of the disabled digital content creator, and a product of their iGNiTE activity.
The interesting fact about them, they have a small team of ten people and four of them are PWDs. One of them is since their inception and the other two joined late and they are elated with their association with LoveActually.Me. Most of the NGOs and relative bodies focus on skilling people with disabilities to help them become employable, but no one ever tried to focus on making them entrepreneurs.
LoveActually.Me partnered with SP-TBI (Sardar Patel Technology Business Incubator) and coined Firstpreneur one of its kinds of incubation program focusing on PWD entrepreneurs. Their first batch will commence in Dec’20. They will handhold PWD entrepreneurs for 12 months and educate them on various facets of the startup arena. They partnered with NAMAN Angels India Foundation, for any startup which is working for PWD or related sector seeking funding and investment.
LoveActually.Me core idea is to represent people with disabilities from a different point of view. They should be seen and considered as a regular individual, not someone who’s seeking validity of their existence.
They are working on a few projects which will be helpful to people with disabilities on a long-term basis. If anyone wishes to be a part of the incubation program of SP-TBI can connect with her at email@example.com
