Nidhi is the founder of SetuGram, aiming to equip people with the required industry skills and provide designers with a platform to showcase their talent.
"No institute can teach creativity, as it comes from within and the skills & hard work is what makes one successful.”
About me and my Start-up - Setugram
From not knowing which career path to choose to now giving career counseling to hundreds of students! I did grow a lot!
From not being able to introduce myself on stage at my college freshers event to interviewing Designers, and well-known people every other day and now providing young talented designers a platform to find their calling! Life did take blissful turns.
Apart from being the founder of Setugram, I am a career counselor, an Educator, and a Blogger by profession with more than 15 years of combined work experience in the Fashion Industry and Educational field. At SetuGram we realized that there is a gap in the design industry between the acquired and required skills that need to be bridged. A lot of talented designers, do not land their dream job just because they might not have the required skill sets or do not know how to showcase the same, hence finding internships/jobs gets difficult. And therefore, we equip them with the required skills and provide them with the platform to showcase their talent in the big wide world of urbanization.
We believe that "A diversified curriculum alone cannot prepare students for the challenges in the Industry. SetuGram offers innovative placement solutions and services, including an end-to-end training and mentorship program.
I am also a Sustainability Enthusiast helping the lesser-known artisans and their craft establish a foundation and make more sales through my various social media channels
Tell us a bit about yourself and your family?
I am the black sheep of a very well-educated Marwari business family based in a small town in Madhya Pradesh. The only designer in a family of all doctors, engineers, chartered accountants, and businessmen doing great in their respective fields.
Have you had any formal training or family business?
As I said, I am the first designer in the family. I am a qualified textile designer, building SetuGram through which we provide a common platform to all designers out there to find jobs, do business, learn, network, collaborate, and grow.
