For Divya Gugnani, CEO & Co-Founder of Wander Beauty, growing up in a traditional family, she wasn’t expected to go to college or have a job or live on her own outside of marriage or even take risks of any sort. Like many young girls and women, who still confront these same cultural barriers, she did not have any role models to emulate. But that didn’t stop her. Instead, she used the lack of role models as an inspiration to reach for more.

In Part 2 of this feature, Divya shares how she overcame cultural barriers, how she creatively landed her investment banking job out of college, how to overcome the barriers that women face when raising capital in a male-dominated VC environment, how mindset is 90% of the battle to success, how you have to create your future and own the goals and dreams that you want and how real everyday women inspired her to co-found Wander and how they continually inspire her to bring new products and new concepts to market.
