The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Meera Kaul as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in technology.

At just 17 years old, Ms. Kaul established herself as a successful entrepreneur.

She is Chairperson, Founder and CEO of most of her ventures. Using the leadership and management skills she has honed, she effectively manages the finance, technology, marketing and logistics sides of her businesses.

“Entrepreneurship is not about an idea, it’s about the executions,” said Ms. Kaul, who believes in the importance of being 100% committed to the product or service you offer. One of her strongest passions is empowering other women. She does this through The Meera Kaul Foundation, her nonprofit organization that partners with corporations and individuals from around the world to create entrepreneurial opportunities for women.

In addition to being a role model for all women, Ms. Kaul is first and foremost a businesswoman who strives to ensure that her ventures are successful and impactful when it comes to the enterprise, social and financial perspectives. “I also hope women all over the world reach their full potential and contribute to society as both employees and leaders.
