Episode 2
30th May, 2022

On our show today, I speak to Ria Shroff Desai, Head of People & Culture at Blume Ventures. Ria and I have shared many relationships over the last decade. We started off as colleagues at Teach For India, she then became my client at Shortlist, and is now on my personal board of directors. She’s my go-to person on all things related to worklife, life as a mother, ideas related to culture & entrepreneurship, navigating life milestones and as you can already guess, she is one of my closest friends that I personally lean on. She’s never been afraid of treading unknown paths and has created a life and career on her own terms. She’s come a long way from working on a farm in Dominican Republic to today leading People & Culture at one of India’s well known early stage VC firms – Blume Ventures. Today she talks to me about women influences in her life, about how isolating it was to raise a daughter in covid times, traversing a non-traditional career journey, creating a seat for herself on the table and so much more
