Nat Geo’s new show ‘She Builds’ spotlights Indian women entrepreneurs

The six-part series is produced in collaboration with Sequoia India and Sikhya Entertainment.

Mumbai: National Geographic has joined hands with Sequoia India to spotlight the inspiring journeys of Indian women entrepreneurs with its brand-new digital series – "She Builds." Premiering on 22 February, the show will be released on National Geographic India’s social media platforms as well as on Disney+ Hotstar.

The six-part series of short digital films will touch upon the lives of seven successful Indian female founders who are defying the odds by taking risks, dreaming big, and driving innovation in India. By spotlighting these role models, "She Builds" seeks to put entrepreneurship on the agenda for a wider group of women and girls, said the channel.

The series, airing over two weeks, will feature entrepreneurs like Animall’s Neetu Yadav & Kirti Jangra (22 February), Mad Street Den’s Ashwini Asokan (24 February), Mamaearth Ghazal Alagh (26 February), Atlan’s Prukalpa Sankar (1 March), Heads Up For Tails’ Rashi Narang (3 March), and Byju’s Divya Gokulnath (5 March).

The six-part series of short films have been produced in collaboration with Sequoia India, Sikhya Entertainment and directed by Vijayeta Kumar.

“At National Geographic, it is our constant endeavour to bring stories that take our audiences on an immersive, inspiring and sympathetic journey," said Disney Star head- network entertainment channels Kevin Vaz. "With ‘She Builds’ we are delighted to bring motivational stories of seven women entrepreneurs who have contributed in changing the narrative of women leadership in India.”

“We understand that short-form content presented in an interesting manner is appreciated and preferred by our audiences, so we are bringing these stories in bite-size formats and premiering them on our highly engaged social media platforms,” Vaz further said.

“At Sequoia India we have been privileged to meet ambitious and successful women entrepreneurs who challenge the status quo every day, building game-changing businesses to be the pioneering leaders they are. Their stories are inspiring, relatable, and incredibly uplifting. But they just don’t get told often enough,” commented Sequoia India and Southeast Asia CMO Gayatri Yadav.

“As a filmmaker, I get immense creative satisfaction in telling stories that can inspire conversations and shape perceptions. With ‘She Builds,’ I am taking the opportunity to present the stories of seven exceptional women who are defining what it means to be a leader in 21st century India," stated Sikhya Entertainment CEO and founder Guneet Monga.
