Meet the Team
Sparkup has evolved and taken root through the untiring efforts of several passionate, smart and talented women.
Management Consultant & Return to Work Advisor
As an experienced management consultant and mom of two, Anju is a problem solver. After an eight year career break, she made the transition back to work in 2012. She was fortunate to find consulting opportunities that created the right balance between challenging work and a flexible environment. Yet, all around her, she noticed a pool of talented moms who were struggling to make the same transition. Having been through it, Anju found herself sharing her experiences and advising others on how to make their re-entry. Sparkup is a natural extension of what she loves to do - helping women rediscover their footing to create opportunities for themselves.
VC, Entrepreneur, Startup Advisor
As a venture capitalist and startup advisor, Singari saw the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs. As a working mother and later, a stay-at-home mother looking to return to work, she also became all too familiar with the challenges faced by both. She conceived the idea of Sparkup as a collaborative effort to change the equation - for herself and other women. After launching and successfully piloting Sparkup in New York, Singari is now building the Sparkup community in the San Francisco Bay Area.
