Two best friends Aditi & Jai, with no prior business experience while going through a difficult phase in their lives decide to band together and form a start-up to bring innovation in the godforsaken contract manufacturing industry.
Aditi (Ms Brains), a mad scientist who loves being a chef in the chemistry lab and is passionate about creating magical formulations.
Aditi an anorak holds two masters (in microbiology & industrial biotechnology) just her way of
letting the world know that she is a nerd.
She has over 12 years of experience in the personal care, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry.
She has tried everything that personal care industry has to offer from global brands to some known and unknown contract manufacturers. After getting frustrated by lack of innovation in her industry, she decided to take it upon herself to change it. A nerd on mission!!!
Jai (Mr Beauty- Not Really), the cheerleader for entrepreneurs.
Jai, a science graduate with an MBA degree after spending ten harrowing years in banking and financial services decides to quit his job. He listens to his soul and joins a non-for –profit organization and eventually ends up helping start-ups, small and medium businesses grow. Regular interactions with entrepreneurs inspired him to take the plunge. As any good friend would do, he drags his best friend along on this crazy, dark and dangerous (& sometimes fun) entrepreneurial journey.
From passion of an innovation hungry chemist and entrepreneurial spirit ignited by inspiring businesses, ARETE labs was born in May 2019.
