Deepti Verma- Founder Seventh Heaven Experriences Pvt. Ltd.
Born and brought up in Rajasthan, I always had the liking to preserve our culture and traditions intact. Rajasthan being my hometown, I always had a liking to explore this destination to the interiors and with time I became an enthusiast traveler. Initially I spent a decade serving the travel and tourism industry and later spending a long stint, I decided to quit, to follow my passion of exploring something new and exciting every day. My no compromising attitude gave birth to Seventh Heaven Experriences, which translates each of my thoughts into an exciting travel experience. In addition, I love to write travel blogs and share my thoughts through the medium of my quotes and blogs.
Being a woman, I have always thought of encouraging and strengthening our counterparts and through the medium of Seventh Heaven Experriences our aim is to promote Sustainable and Responsible way of travel, which in result generates employment within the regions to benefit the women and locals.

Smriti Singh, Founder, SSUAVE
Smriti Singh, 26. I was born and brought up in small town Patna. I moved out after my schooling to Delhi for further studies. Post completing my bachelor’s in journalism, although I had a full-time job as a communications specialist, my heart had always been with fashion.
During the second phase of the pandemic, I started exploring the idea of styling and fashion and came up with a concept of an online styling platform - Ssuave. It took me about four months of day and night. From creating a website, to designing the logo, to finding the right team, to working on the entire business plan, I worked on it single handedly. In sept 2021, I managed to go live with thirteen fashion brands and a team of fashion stylists. I finally went live with Ssauve in Sept 2021.Being featured on GoDaddy was a great push for a new entrepreneur like me. It gave me the motivation I needed to keep going. It creates a lot of buzz for Ssuave that has helped me find new brands and better opportunities.

Seema Singh, Founder, NoDowry Shaadi
DowryShaadi (NDS) is marriage-based introduction service. Men and women who are against the dowry system can start with our new website and support us and we support them with their better match they are looking for. Specific care is taken not to expose the contact information of the members to maintain privacy. The idea of opening up such website came to Seema when she was asked Dowry (car around 15 lakh) demand after ring ceremony of my daughter. The very next day she called off the engagement. That’s when she thought that there might many other people who might have gone through the same and are looking for Rishtas where there is no involvement of dowry. She started this website with GoDaddy and now has many success stories to tell..Website: NoDowry Shaadi
