One of the key speakers at this year's DIS has been featured in LiveMint's article - “The 40 who matter in the Indian startup ecosystem.” The list, which rounds up the country’s key entrepreneurs, ecommerce influentials and media mavens, includes Shradha Sharma, the founder and CEO of YourStory.
YourStory, which started as a blog eight years ago, is today one of the most-read websites on startups and entrepreneurs. It reaches 10 million active readers and clocks about 20 million page views every month.
Shradha is also one of the most well-known faces in the startup media ecosystem and an important commentator on the Indian tech universe.
She is an unashamed proponent of the way that stories can inspire people and change their lives. On her LinkedIn profile she says “I strongly believe that stories have the power to transform, connect and inspire people all over the world. But I am more curious about the stories people live than the ones that they tell. I am not interested in what the world considers beautiful. Tell me of your scars, mistakes and failures. These are stories with character and it is these that I want to hear. Making these stories matter is what I try to do at YourStory every day.”
Shradha will be presenting as one of DIS’s ‘media stars’ on Tuesday March 21st.
