While speaking about her venture, Charu Kumar (Founder, CKdezign, Speaker & Actor, Traveler, Blogger & Writer) said, “We are shipping the products and we are creating it as per customer requirement like whatever dimension they want & whatever fabric they want. In this venture of mine I have also recruited girls and ladies who are not accepted by the society like acid victims or abused married ladies so they all are working with my fashion house.”
She is also a consultant to various startups and have helped in many organisations gain momentum. Commenting on how she is helping startups, she added, “We are providing digital marketing to them. Also we are offering a platform like how to create a website, how to launch a website and how to promote it over social media.”
“CKdezign is just 5 months old but we have been able to capture the international market and we have already started shipping to Canada & US. We have orders lined up for India. I want to make this venture global and want to incorporate and help as many women I can. I would probably increase more production as well.”
