About:

Most of us have been through a phase in our lives where our self-confidence and self esteem took a backseat. But if we have the right amount of self esteem and personal development goals, we can develop the confidence to believe in ourselves. Alakshi Tomar was also one of those girls, who was dealing with questions like how to be confident and how to overcome fear in her life. She was unhappy with both the professional and personal front, often finding it difficult to be fearless at her workplace and at home. But she decided, it was time to sum up her courage and change things around. She started a venture TruCup, working towards the cause which affected her since her time at the Gandhi Fellowship- women’s menstrual health and hygiene. Today, TruCup is initiating a series of changes in the narratives of modern liberated Indian women.

Alakshi is the Co-Founder and Director at TruCup. TruCup creates menstrual cups and aspires to foster a community, a tribe of menstruating women who are healthy, confident and inclusive. TruCup is a start-up offering a range of Menstrual Cups, a young and bold brand that is challenging the stereotypes. Its target is to connect women with eco-friendly products for their menstrual hygiene. The brand is educating both rural and urban women of the long-term health, environmental and financial benefits of switching from unnecessary disposable sanitary products to a menstrual cup. Its ultimate goal is to build a hybrid business model that allows rural women not only to promote sanitary health but also build micro-businesses while they do so.
