Pooja is responsible for the market presence of Turbine. From digital to traditional media, she handles all the communication of Turbine. She is also responsible to connect Turbine with innovators, entrepreneurs, start-ups and key people for whom she organizes tailor made events to enhance the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Having a degree in Management and entrepreneurship and being an aspiring entrepreneur herself, Pooja joined Turbine in 2017 to strengthen Turbine’s Network and brand.
