Challenges are part of life and those who overcome challenges are ones whom the world cherishes. The journey of Upma Kapoor, founder Teal & Terra, an organic and natural beauty product company, is an inspiring one and sends a message to stay strong in tough times.
When Upma was born her parents often told people that she was born for big things. But suddenly, her parents passed away in a tragic accident when she was 12. It was something which left a big void in the heart of a kid. She was raised by her sister and brother-in-law. She completed an MBA in finance from ICFAI.
Professional and Personal Life
After completing MBA, Upma started working in a private firm and worked in the corporate sector for 15 years. She had to walk out of her marriage when her son was four years old because of certain personal issues. But she stood strong and worked as an independent consultant in business and HR for six years. And finally, in 2017, she founded Teal & Terra.
Teal & Terra
Upma started Teal & Terra in 2017 with Rs 7.5 lakh and that was the moment when her life changed. She said her son is her biggest inspiration. Upma employed a remote workforce of odd 20 women as she wanted to empower women through her endeavour.
Teal & Terra is a Gurgaon based organic and natural beauty product company which focuses on providing quality beauty care products. Onion and Castor Hair Oil and Kumkumaid Hair Oil are one of the top-selling products of the company. The company reported a turnover of Rs 2.4 crore in the year 2018.
Upma said that Teal & Terra customers are our biggest ambassadors. And she is planning to offer a wide range of natural baby care products and aiming for a turnover of Rs 15 crore in upcoming years.
