The early life of this commendable leader

In the early age, Nisha started her schooling in a government school in India. Later on, in 1999 she moved to the US and studied Industrial Engineering from Oklahoma State University and after that completed her MBA from Ohio State University. She added “I come from the armed forces, and my mother was a businesswoman, so the duel values of discipline and business acumen were the lessons I had learnt at home. As the youngest, I grew up with a fair amount of freedom. The empowerment and freedom to choose coupled with a strong sense of discipline is something I treasure and believe it has laid the stepping stones to the many risks I have taken”.

Nisha spent a decade in the US and worked with so many different brands like Deloitte, Xerox and Cessna and gained the experience in operation and strategy. In 2009 when she was just 33, returned India and joined Intellecap and the rest are history.

It was only possible for her leadership skills. Her easy accessibility, the transparency in taking important decisions and her capability to providing opportunities to the others makes her a perfect leader.

According to Nisha, technology has tremendous power to break inequalities and solving problems. So as an organization, her new target is throwing weight behind technology to make life more predictable.
