Shivi was raised in a household which celebrated daughters. Her parents encouraged her and all of her siblings to be go-getters and to believe in their talents.
After completing her masters in user experience design, Shivi turned her attentions to healthcare and travelled across India doing field research. During this time, she discovered that many women still suffer from stillbirths in both rural and urban areas.
Shivi’s company, Empathy Design Labs Pvt Ltd, is now engineering a product for women in developing countries, which uses multiple sensors to pick up on any foetal health abnormalities.
According to Shivi, WE Can India has been a game changer for her and her business. She also spoke about how supportive her WE Can mentor has been in helping her to develop in a more focused and strategic way.
“WE Can India is a great platform to encourage women in untapped areas. It has widened my network of people of various expertise and skills. I am looking forward to further learnings and support.”
