She has served on the regional board of the Canadian Cancer Society and she is an informal advisor to several startups.

    Prior to Inksedge, she worked in the personalized stationery & e-commerce domain for 5 years as a Product Manager with Tinyprints and Shutterfly. Before that she was a Software Engineer with Infosys Inc.

    Mallika has a Bachelor in Engineering from Mumbai University. After working for about 2 years as a software developer at NSE Infotech Services Ltd., she started an MBA from IMT Ghaziabad. She worked for two years as an Executive Search consultant and decided to move back to the Tech industry.
