Charu Dixit

State President, Karnataka Innovation Council

India

I am an MBA qualified immensely versatile and creative engineer of entrepreneurial attitude with a proven track record of operations, sales, marketing, strategy & projects etc. in various industries. Born in a middle-class family, all I learnt from the childhood is to study hard to be successful. That is how I ended up being an engineer from one of the top 5 universities in India. I even took up many research projects and published papers in international journals. I also headed an ecommerce marketing portal working across domains, in the time when ecommerce was starting off in India. So, imparting digital awareness and creating systems around it was a challenging task. But I always knew that leadership comes to me naturally and its something I can utilise to work for causes I really believed in. Being a girl and having an open and equality focussed mindset due to my upbringing, I always had strong opinions on issues we face. I was the first girl from my branch to get selected for the most prestigious core engineering company L&T. There I led huge teams of over 100 for projects across the globe. Handling over $30m business independently definitely pushed me through a steep learning curve. Along with that I also worked as a core team member of a disruptive supply chain startup. I grew the client base expanding the presence in over 120+ cities pan India. We were on a mission to digitize the entire supply chain starting from India and save millions of dollars and human resource. Then to further my business skills I went for MBA in the UK in a top 100 ranked B-school globally. It literally widened my perspective and fueled my desire to work with different cultures. Currently, I am Associate Vice President at India’s number 1 esports platform leading growth. I have worked across very diverse industries in leadership roles with tech being at the core of each of them. I strongly believe that digital literacy is vital for women empowerment and more we know about the world around us the better we could advocate about our rights and issues we face in day to day lives.
