About this event

The July event will host Rishika Chandan, an alumni of ISB Hyderabad who cofounded The Home Salon, an on-demand beauty & wellness platform, aimed to make grooming a part of every woman's routine without her having to go out of her way to do so! Connecting professional stylists to customers in a simple and intuitive manner to offer beauty treatments on-demand is the modus operandi. Growing rapidly, the company in a short span, became one of the most renowned brands in Mumbai and was acquired by  Jean-Claude Biguine (JCB), a world leader in the luxury salon and spa chain segment

Earlier the company had raised an undisclosed amount in seed investment from angels-backed startup accelerator VentureNursery.

The Home Salon was co-founded by Rishika Chandan and Nihar Thanawala and aimed to connect stylists, therapists and beauticians to customers who are looking for convenient and prompt home services and treatments. The husband-wife duo’s venture operates as a controlled marketplace which curates products with their app-based model.

The Home Salon was JCB's first acquisitions in India aimed at expanding the scope of its business to offering luxury products and services at customers' homes as also providing specialist hair solutions to existing customers.

Prior to starting out The Home Salon, Rishika worked as an investment banking professional with private equity and transaction execution experience, with expertise in the consumer markets. 

The session will cover Rishika's story with major emphasis on learning to build a successful eCommerce company ground up in India
