Where do new business ideas come from? Sharin Bhatti Nair, Co-Founder of The Hive, an arts & co-working space in Mumbai shares her inspiration.
Entrepreneurship sounds like a tremendous undertaking. But, I feel that all it takes to be an entrepreneur sometimes, is to listen to your heart closely so you can find what drives you and follow the dream with no second thoughts. The path to entrepreneurship might be rough but the ideas usually grow out of one’s own basic values.
If one can tune into those echoes and has a passion to make it real, he or she would definitely be a sought after entrepreneur some day. One such inspiring woman entrepreneur is Sharin Bhatti Nair, Co-Founder of The Hive, a lively centre in Mumbai that acts as a co-working space for start-ups. It is also a place to incubate talent across various creative fields like music, art, dance, theatre, food etc.
What is interesting is how Sharin’s mission to provide a platform to lesser-known talent has become a business idea. This has turned the HIVE into a good platform for budding as well as established artists to showcase their talent in front of discerning audience, entertaining them in ingenious ways.
Ask her about her inspiration and she sums it up as taking birth from the freshness of creative notions people around us offer.
If you dream to start your own business, Sharin’s short video here will inspire you – and remind you that inspiration is all around us.

If you want to get back to work after a break, here’s the ultimate guide to return to work programs in India from tech, finance or health sectors - for women just like you!
Last week, I was having a conversation with a friend related to personal financial planning and she shared how she had had fleeting thoughts about joining work but she was apprehensive to take the plunge. She was unaware of return to work programs available in India.
She had taken a 3-year long career break due to child care and the disconnect from the job arena that she spoke about is something several women in the same situation will relate to.
More often than not, women take a break from their careers to devote time to their kids because we still do not have a strong eco-system in place that can support new mothers, even though things are gradually changing on this front.
A married woman has to wear a sari, sindoor, mangalsutra, bangles, anklets, and so much more. What do these ornaments have to do with my love, respect, and commitment to my husband?
They: Are you married?
They: But You don’t look like it
Me: (in my Mind) Why should I?
Why is being married not enough for a woman, and she needs to look married too? I am tired of such comments in the nearly four years of being married.
I believe that anything that is forced is not right. I must have a choice. I am a living human, not a puppet. And I am not stopping anyone by not following any tradition. You are free to do whatever you like to do. But do not force others. It’s depressing.
