The successful woman entrepreneur Anu Meena is the founder of Agrowave. Agrowave is a company that provides services like customized sorting, grading as well as packaging to maintain the quality of Agro products. Anu’s incredible venture helps farmers in getting rid of their problems. She has been a TED speaker and a Wired Next Generation Japan speaker.
She has completed her schooling at the government Hindi medium school in the village till 8 standards after that she used to travel 3-4 km away from the village to town due to horrible connectivity, she used to sleep on muddy roads to attend school. It was a big problem for her when she took her first test and didn’t do well.
It impacted her so much that she slipped into despair. When she was under pressure, she used to study 14 hours a day and sleep only 2 hours. She graduated from IIT Delhi in 2016 and went on to complete her post-graduate studies (B Tech + M Tech) in Delhi. Here her challenge was to cope with language transitions.
The journey begins from the small village of Rajasthan. After my master’s I served in an American Start-up for a short period. Where I served as an operation analyst. I joined this start-up to learn new skills which would help me in my next venture.
In 2017, when I saw my grandfather was surrounded by a lot of problems in agriculture. I keenly observed my grandfather as well as other farmers struggling for pricing their crops in the markets then I figure out a program to help them out since I started working on a project of Agrowave. Farmers can directly sell their fresh fruits and vegetables to retailers through my program.
Anu faced many challenges on my way to becoming a woman entrepreneur, but demotivation from others motivated me to do better, so she chose to take the next step with Agrowave, and after a few months, Anu Meena received funding for my operation, which began operations in August 2017. Meena put together the efforts of Payal Jawalkar and Arun Yadav believe that journey is always more beautiful than a journey.
