Anshulika Dubey, co-founder and chief operating officer of wishberry.in has made it to the list of Forbes Asia ‘Top 30 under 30′.

wishberry.in is India’s first crowd-funding platform for creative projects. The Forbes magazine which featured top 300 young entrepreneurs and their enterprises have included Dubey in the finance and venture capital segment.

Dubey was ecstatic about the recognition and told Hindustan times “I got an email in the morning from Forbes Asia editor informing that I’ve made it to the Asia ‘Top 30 under 30’ list. It was a pleasant surprise and took time to sink in.”

she added “I had made it to the semi-finals last month. My father was eagerly waiting to find out the final result and he would ask me about it almost every day. So, I called my father and mother. They were very happy.”

The concept of crowd funding fascinated her so much that she left a job opportunity in the US and started India’s first crowd funding platform for creative artists, with her co-founder and ex-McKinsey consultant Priyanka Agarwal, in 2012.

Manju Bhatia Joint MD of Vasuli recovery, Ritesh malik of Project Guerilla and Anjney midha founding partner of KPCB are the other Indians who featured in the list.
