Reportedly Suchi, a woman of substance, always envisioned of building and growing businesses that are focused on simple yet in-demand consumer products. It is said, that the idea of Limeroad came to her, while she was on her maternity leave.
She embarked on the journey of making Limeroad, in 2012 along with Manish Saksena, Ankush Mehra, and Prashant Malik. The company has now risen a funding of $20 Million from Light speed venture partners, Matrix Partners and Tiger Global. Limeroad has a strong team of 200+ IIT-techies to NIFT-design geeks. It has 1.5 million scrapbooks posted by users so far, and 100,000 scrapbooks made per day. Their Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) has also grown by a massive 600% since their launch.
Nevertheless, Suchi and her associates had to face numerous challenges like, finding the right people to build a solid team which has a combination of skill and can-do attitude, getting the right kind of infrastructure. The existing eco-system for the professionally trained vendors is a daunting task to date. But as she was determined to achieve what she had dreamt of, nothing could hold her back.
