Sheroes, India’s one of the largest platform and a nurturing ecosystem for ambitious and aspirational women, has acquired a Bangalore-based online career restart platform — Women Restart, for an undisclosed amount.
As a part of the acquisition, Sheetal Arora, founder and CEO of Women Restart, will now join Sheroes as Director, Research and Resources. With this, the company aims at strengthening its presence in Bangalore and offer assistance to its community.
Commenting on the integration, Sairee Chahal, founder SHEROES, said,
SHEROES already lends holistic support and space, both professional and personal, to its community of women through products like ShebySHEROES, MARS, AskSHEROES and its online communities on the SHEROES App. The aim is to strengthen women in their personal and professional pursuits. This acquisition will integrate with those efforts. Women Restart has been a strong community on the SHEROES app ever since we launched and having them onboard will bring deeper support via the platform.
Women Restart was formed as a result of challenges women face in restarting their career. It acts as a support system for women wanting to make a career comeback by helping them in developing an understanding of their own job readiness and familiarizing them with the latest trends and technologies used in the workplace.
By connecting women with other professionals, the platform inspires and empowers them to confidently progress with their career goals. Sheetal Arora, founder of the company, said,
SHEROES has been building a community of women from across the country, helping them find mentorship, resources and a circle of support. It has done some stellar work by building and leading this category. This integration will allow us to leverage their vast network and reach out to a broader section of women seeking growth.
Having served over a million women till date, SHEROES aims to emerge as the world’s most transformative women’s social product. With a vision to impact the lives of 100 million women in the next 10 years, the startup has been working towards putting the growth of women on the nation-building map and reducing gender disparity.
