The first question asked by Kunal Guha, Founder and Chief-Editor of Global Business Line is: How did this idea come to her mind? Answering this, she said that being an entrepreneur, network or connection with people are the most important and foremost things but she was unable to find any community that was transparent and supported members. Therefore, with the help of her partner she founded this community to facilitate business owners with a nurturing habitat where they can thrive by building relationships and helping each other grow.
