Ready Set Jet funding
Encubay Angel Network has invested to the tune of 50 Lakhs in Ready Set Jet, a global lifestyle and Beauty brand.
Out of 10,000+ angel investors in India, only 1% percent are women. This is not due to lack of intention but due to lack of awareness. Staying true to its values of encouraging diversity in the startup ecosystem, the Encubay Angel Network brings together women-led founders, founders developing products for women, and individuals interested in investing in diverse start-ups with a strong focus on encouraging first-time investors.
Commenting on the development, Deeksha Ahuja, Founder, Encubay, says, “Encubay has always looked at creating diversity in the most innovative way to level the playing field for women founders. Forming the Encubay Angel network to get more women to start investing as angels have been no exception. The network’s debut investment in Ready Set Jet Is an example of how diversity can create exponential value in the startup ecosystem. We are bullish on inclusive beauty and of course, Shalini’s grit makes for the kind of women founders we are inclined to back with capital, mentorship, and sisterhood of some amazing women!”
Shalini Vadhera, Founder, Ready Set Jet, says, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Deeksha Ahuja and the Encubay Team. From strategically bringing us best-in-class angel investors to the incredible work ethic and passion for women lead companies, Deeksha and her team have gone above and beyond and continue to be a strong ally for the Ready Set Jet brand and mission. Working with the Encubay Angel Network has been a game-changer for our business. We look forward to continuing a very successful partnership.”
Aarti Sinha, Director Account Management, Mastercard India Services Private Limited said, “Ready Set Jet, as the name suggests, embodies all the ingredients for a company to soar high. An entrepreneur who not only has the credentials, vision, courage & confidence but also the unique ability to think global & act local. Shalini understands not only her products but the pulse of the Indian & global markets. The cosmetics industry in India is pegged to grow at 25% CAGR and touch 20 billion by 2025 and Ready Set Jet products and strategy is well placed to gain market share.”
