The Managing Director and CEO of Metropolis Healthcare, Ameera Shah emphasises that failure is an indication that you’re willing to try, no matter the risk, and at the end of the day, that drive to try just one more time is what makes anybody successful. One of the biggest challenges in her own entrepreneurial journey was establishing herself as a serious entrepreneur.

“The pathology industry in India used to be highly unorganised, under capitalised, and functioned with little or no regulation. When we started working on expanding the business from a single lab, one of the major setbacks was my lack of medical expertise, only after my gender and young age. In a male-dominated space, where there was a serious dearth of talent and a good business model, it took a while to make people realise that I can bring incomparable value to the table. The only way to overcome this hurdle was to never give up and stay focused. Once people started realising I was serious about our vision, things became easier,” she says.

Impossible means nothing and Kanika Tekriwal, CEO and Co-founder of JetSetGo, has truly shown that by overcoming every challenge that has come her way.
