Himani Joshi founder of Eduhive Creative Studio says, "Network with other women entrepreneurs as much as you can, ask for help."
Excerpts from an interview with Himani Joshi, founder of Eduhive Creative Studio, a branding and digital creative agency.
When did you start Eduhive Creative Studio and what was the intention?
Founder of Eduhive Creative Studio, Himani Joshi says, I started my current company in 2015. One of my favourite topics was brand building.
I met a friend who was trying to start their own Indian apparel brand but was struggling because of a lack of Indianized concepts of branding and marketing.
I started with that project and gradually realized the market gap and requirement of entrepreneurs who are looking for technical as well as advisory consultation to develop and market brands in India for Indians with an Indian touch.
Today at Eduhive Creative Studio we transform brands from inside out. We provide service in the area of brand strategy and brand building, website development and digital marketing.
What was the biggest challenge you faced in starting the company?
Building a good team was my biggest challenge.
Having the right people in your team working alongside you to achieve your goals is very important for building business.
What is the biggest mistake you made while starting your company in the initial few years?
In the initial years, we didn’t work on systemizing internal processes. This led to poor time management and a lack of evenness in the distribution of work on the team internally.
We now have corrected these internal mismanagement issues.
We also understood that this is a constant activity and immediate correction is required if any redundancy is found.
If there was one thing you could advise to a budding woman entrepreneur, what would it be?
Network with other women entrepreneurs as much as you can, Don’t shy from asking for help. You learn a lot when you network and a lot of mistakes that you are making get corrected.

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
A man doing a PhD is rebuked for not earning well. A woman on other hand is constantly questioned why she's doing a PhD when she should have been married and raising kids.
Indians have an almost fanatic obsession with the salutation Dr. Even a child who barely understands the world around, when asked “what you want to become later in life?” usually blurts out a teacher or a doctor, as these are the professionals we first encounter early on in our lives.
I too, was fascinated with the white coat fascination alongside with the Dr tag, right from childhood. However, I did not score the marks required for getting into medical college, and my dream landed on the ground with a thud, and I went in for a graduation in sciences.
My graduation and post-graduation were a roller coaster ride and a second post-graduation which I pursued since I wanted to get into the academic career brought with itself a new perspective towards life. That year I shone like the brightest star and became the most meritorious student of the campus. I cleared my Net exam much before the post-graduation results were declared, and became a sort of sensation in the university. One of my professors remarked, “So we see the next doctor in making now” when he congratulated me.
