What inspired you to build the above initiative?
There are so many people working from home and not able to showcase their talent to the world, with Navvi we are trying to create a platform to help them reach to a wider audience. We want to tap the untapped potentials and bring the best what Indian micro and small scale industry has to offer. This is also in line with the concept of “Women Empowerment” as a lot of our vendors are young women entrepreneurs trying to showcase their talent.
