Nita Ambani has another project in hand. The wife of Asia’s richest man Mukesh Ambani has gone on to make her name for herself through her various ventures in education, philanthropy, and of course, cricket.

On the occasion of women’s day, Ambani has launched a social media and networking platform for women called Her Circle. According to a statement from the company, Her Circle will be a content, social media and goal fulfilment community.

“I am delighted that we can create such a circle of support and solidarity for millions of women through HerCircle.in, a digital platform that invites every woman to join and make her own. With the Digital Revolution enabling 24x7 global networking and collaboration, Her Circle welcomes ideas and initiatives of women from all cultures, communities and countries. We make sisterhood and equality our touchpoints on this platform,” she said in a statement.

The platform will also connect women to experts across health, wellness, education, entrepreneurship, finance, philanthropy, mentorship and leadership.

But Ambani is not new to pulling the strings in business. While she is not actively involved in the running of Reliance Industries’ core businesses, Ambani runs multiple other ventures that bring her credibility apart from her family name.

Dhirubhai International School

Nita Ambani was a school teacher and a dancer before she married Mukesh Ambani. And her love for teaching led her to establish a school in honour of her famous father in law, Dhirubhai Ambani. In 2003, she launched and became the founder and chairperson of Dhirubhai Ambani International School which has two branches in Mumbai.
