Reetu Gupta
Co-Founder and CEO at Cirkled in

I’m a startup founder, leveraging my experience in corporate America as a strategist, marketer, and engineer to meet unmet needs in the market, make an impact in the world, and hopefully build a billion-dollar company. My unique value proposition is fire in my belly and smarts in my brain.

Mentoring is a way to pay back the universe. I have benefited tremendously from mentors and champions throughout my career. And my philosophy is give-give-get. I want to give twice what I received so I don’t leave this world with any societal debt.
I also believe that mentoring is a 2-way street. On paper, I may be mentoring someone, but I’m learning from them as much, if not more, as they may be hearing from me.

As a mentor, I excel at…

  • Entrepreneurship and startup world
  • Identifying macro market trends and tapping into blue ocean opportunities
  • Executing despite speed bumps

The best career decision I’ve made was…

doing an MBA. The MBA opened doors for me that I didn’t even know existed. It showed me various careers on the business side and enabled me to move into a new world of business. That led to entrepreneurship and my current company – Cirkled In.

I describe myself as…

resilient, executor, go-getter.

As a kid, I was fascinated by…

space and astronauts.

My favorite book, blog, podcast is…
