Watch Kahaniyah Introduction Video
Business experience: With over 19 years’ experience in Finance, Education and Storytelling, Debleena has always loved both words and numbers. For the first fifteen years of her career, she told many a story with numbers in leadership positions across, GE, Fidelity, JP Morgan, Prudential, Unitus Ventures, Gray Matters Capital and more. All the while, her love for words kept biding time, in secret. Kahaniyah gave her a way to combine both words and numbers to create powerful story-based narratives. Today, she is a Social Impact Leader apart from being an entrepreneur, working on Storytelling, and on Education.
Creative experience: She is a published author. Her first book was a historical mystery book for children. Her second book, “A Marketplace for Murder,” is a whodunit crime fiction novel taking a deep look at startups and identity fraud. She is an investigative journalist with Economic Times Prime and a trained classical singer. Long meetings find her writing limericks and even longer ones, find her singing them, in secret.
Venkat has a 23-year career in creating and building brands, with experience in creative design, marketing communications and digital marketing. His stints include leadership roles at companies like HP, Wipro, and BRIDGEi2i Analytics, where he has helped build the story of one of India’s fastest growing Analytics firms.
Venkat is also an independent electronic musician (alias Saint Vee) and a mindfulness practitioner trained in Reiki and Crystal therapy techniques. His learning: Storytelling is an organic process. It’s about the senses, it’s about making a connection. In business as in life, you have great stories to tell when you find the connecting dots between design, stories and action.
