I grew up in Delhi, India, and moved to the U.K. for my undergraduate degree in accounting & finance at the University of Warwick. I started my career at Ernst & Young, London where I gained experience in the financial services industry and simultaneously qualified as a Chartered Accountant.

I always had an entrepreneurial itch since I was a little girl, and recently I found my calling when I moved back home to India and identified a gap in the footwear industry. And so I started Kanabis—a brand of fashionable, high quality and animal-friendly footwear for women. We are available at select stores, exhibitions, trunk shows and online at www.kanabis.in.

On a personal note, I have been passionately learning Indian classical dance since I was four and have had the privilege to perform in Delhi, the U.K., Singapore and Paris.

Devika was a Cross Continent MBA student prior to the program's merger with the Global Executive MBA program.
