“Humble Beginnings” – Vasanthan Ramakrishnan
Vasanthan Ramakrishnan, President & Chair at Feminist Pen Foundation is an educator, professor, researcher, entrepreneur, philanthropist, chef, and social activist among many others. Vasanthan’s big mission is to bring overall progress for the human race.
Born into a family of teachers in Madurai, a young Vasanthan’s view of the world was very narrow and limited. As he grew up, he realized he was naturally drawn towards helping people and that there was an innate fulfillment in the act of making an impact in someone’s life. However, his goals didn’t materialize until his early twenties and he took advantage of the endless possibilities around him and turned them into impact ideas thus giving birth to Feminist Pen Foundation.
He founded Feminist Pen Foundation; an award-winning international non-profit organization that aimed at bringing global gender equality advocacy thereby making small leaps to close the global gender parity gap. Feminist Pen currently has operations in 4 countries and since its inception has reached over more than 200,000 people in seventeen different countries in the world.
Today, employees from over 6 countries work at Feminist Pen Foundation from different offices and take pride in their work and impact that it brings to the world around them.
Feminist Pen believes in reform through education and the organization’s core value is to educate and nurture the ideas of feminism as it relates to the larger concept of human equality, opposed to the more common gynocentric understanding of the term.
Another way Vasanthan gives back to the world is through his Research & Development (R&D) lab – VasX Labs which currently operates in 2 countries with prospective expansion to a third country. VasX Labs greatly emphasizes on the longer-term impact created rather than short term finance goals. Many of its projects are non-profit ventures that aim to transform a particular aspect of human life through disruptive engineering solutions.
Vasanthan received 4 national and 1 international awards for his work with Feminist Pen just in 2021 and has been featured in over 30 media organizations nationally and internationally. He has made it to the cover of Achiever’s World Magazine in the April - June 2021 edition for his notable work on gender equality through Feminist Pen Foundation. He is the winner of High Flyers Appreciation Awards 2021. Vasanthan is reachable through his LinkedIn with the following link: Vasanthan Ramakrishnan.

"A Mastermind at Work" - Indrani Dwarampudi
Dynamic Indrani Dwarampudi is a young entrepreneur who has become a brand unto herself. With a unique leadership style & professional conduct, she along with her adroit team has been rendering trailblazing solutions such as Advertising and Branding, Social Media Marketing, SEO & Content Marketing, Website Building, Video Production, and Product photography. Being the mastermind behind Berry Ads and Branding is her attempt to digitally help entrepreneurs seize attention to their unique business offerings. Indrani was always inclined towards advertising so she went ahead and pursued masters in the same (MBA - Media Management) from Amity University, Noida, and ended up winning a silver medal for “The Best in Business Acumen.” She always wanted to be an entrepreneur and whilst she was working, she realized that there were more opportunities than doing the mundane job. It was then that she decided to have her own business setup, to provide advertising, branding & digital marketing services purely based on ROI. She teamed up with the other co-founders D Venkat Reddy (current director) & Rohit Reddy (technical head) who not just funded the idea, but also come with robust experience in the fields of Marketing & technology. Along with immense support and technical insight from her husband P. Pranav Reddy to begin this start up. Berry strives to understand not just the client offering, but also its relevance in the market to ensure every penny is spent in the right direction and towards achieving the desired outcome. Teamed up with the other co-founders D Venkat Reddy (currently our Director) & Rohit Reddy (technical head) who not just funded the idea, but also come with robust experience in the fields of Marketing & technology. I also received immense support and technical insight from my husband P. Pranav Reddy which helped me build this tech-driven start-up. “We are a 360-degree marketing & advertising agency providing branding solutions to clients, but here is the twist that we go that extra mile to ensure the results are quantified for the clients. For instance, agencies typically take up promotions & lead generation, but at Berry, we also have the provision of calling these leads and closing the sale. So, when we provide end to end solutions, there is no scope of ambiguity and the ROI is out there for the clients to see the value we created.” But being a woman in business, however, comes with its own drawbacks. Indrani had to face a lot of flak based on her gender. But being determined she overcame all of that with the grit to prove herself. “Our work culture is unique. We encourage our employees to give ideas and learn different skills and use them to benefit our clients. We have an informal vibe at work,” she says. Berry started off with a single employee in a single room, and currently has 11 dextrous employees. It serves clients from different cities in India and the USA. It has worked with some of the biggest brands in the country like T.I.M.E & Krishnapatnam Port and has been a part of 20+ brands’ growth story. Apart from regular advertising & branding services, Berry offers services like product photography & tele calling for clients. The work culture is unique. We do not have too many boundaries as to who works on what. All the employees are encouraged to learn different skill sets and use them to benefit the clients. We believe that the freshness of the idea is vital for an agency to stay relevant in the long term, and confiding our resources to a single stream of thought/ work does not help. We have a very informal vibe at work. There is a work hard, party harder policy that we follow. While we are at work, we are totally consumed by it. While we are partying, we hardly think about work,”
