Founder and CEO of Svatanya
Deepa Pant is a social entrepreneur who follows her heart and believes in playing every role to the hilt. A NIFT post-graduate with more than 13 years in the corporate world, Deepa has experience ranging from working with brands like Nike, Reebok, Woolworths, WoolRich, and the pan-India launch of an active wear brand. She has experience providing brand and merchandize consulting to IPL teams.
With a wide spectrum of experience and skills in brand innovation, positioning, design and development, SCM, business development and merchandise consultancy, she started SVATANYA, a Conscious Responsible Creative Crafts Design Enterprise, using India’s rich art and culture to create beautiful handcrafted products while up-skilling underprivileged women in Delhi slums towards financial empowerment. The impact has been expanded to marginalized children across the country whereby handcrafted toys and other products made by SVATYANA women are gifted to youth who live slums through NGOs, government hospitals and programs run by the SVATANYA India Foundation.
Since its inception, SVATANYA has been recognized by Indian Women Excellence & Leadership Award at National Women Leadership Summit 2019 in Vigyan Bhawan; Burgundy Achiever for Social Impact in 2018 by She The People at Bombay Stock Exchange; Social Impact Award at 25th Mystique India Conclave 2019 at IIC Delhi and more.
Her spiritual bent and firm belief in co-existence and co-creation further strengthened with her journey in pursuit of discovering herself through Akashic Reading and Theta Healing.
