When asked about the idea she says,
“Refer Me Group idea is given by my husband, once he got challenge to refer good candidates in his organization when we shifted from Mumbai to Gurgaon as he was new and not familiar with much professionals there. So I thought why not there should be a platform on which professionals can get connect with each other personally & share information with each other.”
