Diving into eCommerce has helped my business grow


Co-founder, Skylock

Weaving embroidered dupattas into a multi-crore business

Kajal Makwana

I had big dreams when I left my hometown of Alwar, Rajasthan, in 2005. But after eight years working in IT, I found that my career wasn’t giving me the satisfaction I was seeking when I first came to Panipat for work. So I found an even bigger dream: I would start my own business.

It was great to meet again in 2016.
