No matter the endeavor, Divya Dhar is committed to making a positive impact in the world. Her start-up Seratis, a healthcare communication platform aims to reduce medical errors. She also started New Zealand’s biggest youth-based non-profit—P3 Foundation—to help diminish poverty in the country.
Dhar’s success lies in her utter passion. “I do not do anything until I’m willing to cry for it,” claims Dhar, who believes people are fueled by being around other inspired people. “Everyone wants to feel impassioned about their work, and it helps to have founders who are inspired.”
Her candid advice for young entrepreneurs includes delaying selling their big ideas to hospitals initially since they’re entrenched with bureaucracy. Instead, find organizations that are nimble, early adopters, and ones that allow testing your ideas.
Shreya specializes in health communications and is a copywriter for an advertising agency. She was previously at Bayer Healthcare, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide
