Salma is an expert in the area of marketing, community building and business development. She is a hacker – for businesses she hacks growth. Starting in 2020, she is now hosting her own Channel, “Salma Moosa Talks”. Her objective behind building this platform is to tell the inspiring story of people she knows or has come across. She will also be sharing the stories of her own experiences.
Her Channel is a platform for entrepreneurs, leaders, enablers, individuals to have a candid chat on their journey and their story, passing their lessons to many others out there. She also conducts MasterClasses, Workshops, Vlogs and shares her lessons through short videos. As a woman in business, she brings an opportunity for women to take a stand, have a voice and to be heard.
Salma’s own story is quite inspiring. She has been an entrepreneur her entire life and has dabbled in many businesses in the past 3 decades. She brings this experience to bear to help startups across India. She has also written a book about this journey and made her debut as an author.
Salma is the co-founder and the engine behind Startups Club. She founded Startups Club along with Vivek Srinivasan in 2013 and has since been engaged in building and growing the business. Startups Club spreads across India and engages with entrepreneurs across the country. This would have been impossible without the energy that Salma imbues every day into Startups Club.
Before Startups Club, she ran a consulting firm engaged in undertaking turnkey projects for small and medium scale enterprises. During the 7 years that she ran this business, she had the privilege of working in multiple industries including; education, healthcare, IT, hospitality, internet and manufacturing.
She has also led ventures engaged in education, training and export-import.
She started her entrepreneurial journey with her father. They ran a company that specialised in commercialising intellectual property. Her father was a serial inventor and Salma was engaged in patenting the inventions and selling the patents. The business was spread across India and Singapore.
