Embark on our extraordinary journey that unfolded in 2016, when two visionary souls, Aarti and Lakshman, ignited the spark to revolutionize the lives of women in India. United by a shared passion and an unwavering commitment, their profound sense of purpose set them on a transformative path that would reshape their destinies.
Aarti, a luminary in hospitality, and Lakshman, a finance alumnus, embarked on their entrepreneurial voyage after bidding farewell to illustrious corporate careers spanning eight years. Their mission was elegantly simple yet profoundly impactful: to uplift and empower women by addressing the often overlooked yet critical issue of menstrual hygiene.
Their odyssey was a testament to the indomitable spirit of human endeavour. Venturing into urban, semi-urban, and rural India, they immersed themselves in extensive research to authentically comprehend the challenges faced by women. Listening, learning, and empathizing, they absorbed the stories and struggles of countless women.
In 2017, a significant milestone marked their journey as they conceptualized, constructed, and unveiled the inaugural sanitary napkin vending machine. This groundbreaking creation found its home in a school nestled in the heart of Dharavi, one of Mumbai's largest slum areas. Revolutionizing access to affordable hygiene for young girls, this vending marvel distributed sanitary napkins through pre-paid RFID smart cards.
The subsequent years witnessed the metamorphosis of Tendril Products into Tendryl Products Private Limited, evolving from a dynamic duo to a formidable team of 14, pulsating with passion and purpose. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the team showcased resilience, adapting to new challenges while remaining steadfast in their mission. Today, the team stands as a dedicated group of eight individuals, their commitment to empowering women and girls unwavering.
This indomitable spirit culminated in Tendryl Products' incubation with the US Embassy and American Centre's Startup program – Nexus Hub, along with the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore's (IIMB) NSRCEL’s Women Startup Program. These initiatives propelled Tendryl Products' growth, expanding into new markets, including exports.
At Tendryl, we are not merely constructing a business; we are ardently crafting a brighter, healthier, and more prosperous life for women across India. Our journey epitomizes the power of two friends' visionary dream and their unyielding commitment to drive change, one vending machine at a time.
