Anu’s entrepreneurial journey started in 2000 after she moved back to india on completion of her MIS from University of Illinois. She had initially founded Ocimum Bio Solutions, a company that helped scientists in their research. Her venture thrived well, however, Anu wanted to create something that could directly impact people. Thus, she founded MapMyGenome in 2013. As she already had 10+ years of experience in genomics research, she was confident that this technology could transform the health industry.



MapMyGenome’s primary service ‘Genomepatri’ analyzes an individual’s vulnerability to certain diseases, responses to certain drugs, and risks posed due to lifestyle and diet factors. It’s like a scientifically validated horoscope for health. Depending on your medical history, it helps you know yourself and build healthy habits. Her company has tied up with many hospitals, wellness centres, yoga centres and individual distributors.
