PURNAM was conceptualised to help driven exhibitors to define their own road in life by exposing them to an unlimited number of buyers they would not meet otherwise. PURNAM is an embodiment of the entrepreneurial flair of four spirited ladies. With a passion to serve, Saroj Bhatia, Indu Gupta, Jani Dhingra and Sarita Baluja joined hands to give exposure to entrepreneurs from different parts of the country and enable them to widen their horizons.
The four founders of PURNAM met each other in 1994 while working together for the reputed NGO, Akshay Pratishthan. They organised fund-raising exhibitions in embassies and later realised that they could take this initiative forward by putting together more such events that gave others a platform to showcase their talent and grow their businesses. In 2006, with this inspiration at its core, PURNAM was incepted.
