Richa Sethi Agarwal

I started my career as a sales and marketing professional in the corporate world. After a successful stint of eight years in various national level roles with Philips Electronics, I decided to follow my passion for creating impactful learning pathways for children.

I co-founded ‘The Writer’s Bug, with the purpose of making creative, literary and life skills more accessible to children. Over past few years we have created many avenues that laud the creative expression, as well as empowers children to pursue their literary and creative dreams confidently. The Writer’s Bug hosts Junior Writer’s Bug literary festival for children, that celebrates not just stories, books, colourful illustrations but also provides students the opportunity to lead the event. Another initiative ‘Young Sparks’ is a student mentoring program that provides talented students in the field of creative writing and illustration, an opportunity for mentoring by professionals. We have partnered with Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai to create experiential storylines based on the wide history curated at the museum.

My work as a mentor with Technoserve and Cherie Blair Foundation, supporting other women entrepreneurs is my contribution towards strengthening the much needed ecosystem. I am a certified NLP practitioner and MBA from MDI, Gurgaon. Car rallying is one of my passions. I live with my two children and husband in Mumbai.
