She returned to India in 2010 to participate in the exciting growth story of India and especially leverage the use of technology to innovate delivery of healthcare services. She joined Teleradiology Solutions (TRS) spearheading business development to move forward global healthcare delivery out of India.
In 2013, Ankita started researching the mental health space in India and saw a huge need to use technology to help overcome the cultural barriers including stigma, low awareness and poor access to democratize the access to good quality mental health. For the last 18 months she has dedicated her time and efforts to build a world class Online Mental Health Counselling portal (Healtheminds.com) providing therapy programs through an integrated and secure video technology platform.
Healtheminds has gathered a lot of interest in the media being featured in YourStory, The Hindu, Times of  India, Asian Age, Indian Express, Hindustan Times etc. The company received the Start-up finalist award for the EO Entrepreneurs program.
