15-yr-old entrepreneur Ayesha Siddique pitches start-up idea

Hyderabad: Ayesha Siddique from Warangal presented her start-up idea at We-Hub (Women Entrepreneurs Hub), to help the elderly identify medicine by colour or by the first letter based on prescription.

Lauding the talent of the fifteen-year-old entrepreneur Ms Deepthi Ravula, the chief executive officer of WE-Hub said, “She captured our interest by just saying ‘I have start-up’. Unlike parents putting up Class 10 kids, she was in charge of the entire thing, which is startling. She wants to simplify the identification of medicines, which is relevant to all us.”

Her father Basheer Mohammed who is working along with her father to develop the product, Virosphere, revealed: “She has seen the pain her grandma endured to identify the tablets and constantly going around with prescriptions to doctors”.

Ayesha has recently taken admission in Intermediate in the MPC stream. Her father is also a software engineer. Ms Ravula said though the decision on boarding Ayesha or the other start-ups onto We-Hub hasn’t been made yet, she, however, ensured every support so that Ayesha can continue her education and entrepreneurial activity without feeling the stress.

290 applications were received at We-Hub of which 62 start-ups were shortlisted for the final round.
