Dr Nikhilesh Tiwari
He is the founder and CEO of Spay Technology Pvt Ltd. His career began in Kanpur and Delhi with a fintech firm as a Sales Manager. During his stint with Vodafone M-Pesa in 2015, he visited many villages in Bihar and learned that villagers lacked bank accounts or a way to send or receive remittances from distant relatives. They needed help with this. Helping them create an M Pesa account to transfer money solved their problem. Since then, he's had lucid thoughts about helping the underprivileged because he learned how important it is to improve the rural sector for the country's sake. He believed technology was the greatest egalitarian enabler today. This was the turning point when he started Spay Technology Pvt Ltd in 2018 to empower the rural population to live in a cashless economy. Spay India is a mobile payment app that serves the rural market to people who go cashless. Spay India, a B2B portal, offers online money transfers, Aadhar-enabled payments, utility bill payments, travel, bus ticket booking, insurance, and more.

Doulas are birth assistants or labour support specialists. A doula helps a family before, during, and after childbirth. Megha Kapoor is a Doula trained under "The Doula Collective." She's a mother of one who supports pregnant and birthing women. She's curious because even with today's modern support system for expectant mothers, there are gaps in information and emotional attention. Her goal is to provide the right care and knowledge to both parents during pregnancy, childbirth, and early nursing so that all minds and hearts are involved in the beautiful yet demanding process and come out smiling and bonded. Another driving factor for her to take up this important role is her own journey of childbirth where she was met with utmost support and love from her family, however, there was an absolute lack of informational support which to her is most important in making informed choices and owning your own birth story. She has taken it upon herself to assist expectant mothers and parents in the most important journey of their life and make it meaningful!
