About Kruti

I am an eCommerce marketing expert and site merchandiser who has been able to deliver a consistent approach throughout a challenging period of development. I keep myself up-to-date with the fast-moving eCommerce Digital Marketing landscape, particularly technological and search engine trends, changing algorithms, new analytics methods and ranking factors. I understand the importance of always staying one step ahead in this dynamic and ever-changing field.

Idea:

I recently had my first baby and realized how challenging and stressful parenthood can be especially on new mothers. When you have to work to meet the financial requirements, leaving your young child in care of a place you are not sure of and fearing the worst for the baby has been my number one challenge.

Since then I have been trying to find ideas and solutions on how to improve this situation and how to give that new mother her required peace of mind.

I'm open to networking and meeting other like minded people for startup and ideation opportunities!
