KOLKATA, sixty-three-year-old Aparna Dhar is one such entrepreneur, who has opened ‘MOM’S TOUCH’, which manufactures and sells handicraft, such as crocheted handbags, necklaces, quilling, earring, bangles, rings and decorative items. A theatre artiste and a social worker, Dhar started the venture five years ago, innovating and designing the products. If Dhar is using her creative skills to help out poor kids, four senior corporate professionals—one in his 60s and the others in their 50s have started a venture to help out people visiting the city for medical services, Called ‘2 get well’, which is registered under the Startup India programme. They offer a bouquet of services such as appointment with doctors, hospital visits, diagnostic services, and buying medicines. Amit Mukherjee (53), a computer science engineer, floated the idea, which he hopes would come in good stead for residents of districts and other states, who visit the city for medical help but don’t have much knowledge about the city. They have already earned revenue of Rs 15 lakh.
