SVP, Tech Mahindra
As a chemical engineer, Shankar Prasad always had a penchant for chemistry, but with Plum, Phy, and Plum BodyLovin’, he wanted to create something close to nature.

In a fireside chat with Tech Mahindra’s Apurva Chamaria, Prasad will open up on how Plum retained its unique identity and brand, while banking on marketplaces and multi-brand retail.
