TishTash are excited to now represent fabulous female Monica Malhotra, the founder and CEO of The Gaggler. Monica is a passionate entrepreneur always looking for ways to create something with a positive impact. This passion has led her to start-up businesses in education and more recently in online publishing.
With an educational background in finance, Monica is an Economics and. Accounting B.A. graduate from Claremont McKenna College and a qualified Certified Public Accountant (CPA). She also has an MBA from the Stern School of Business (NYU) in Finance and Digital Economy. Before launching The Gaggler, she was a generalist with industries ranging from management consulting and pharmaceuticals to real estate and investment banking on her resumé. Her diverse 25-year career has seen her live in the US, the UK, and the UAE so far.
In 2009, Monica’s passionate urge to create something different in the Early Years Education space brought her back to Dubai, the city she left as a high school graduate. Monica kickstarted her entrepreneurial journey by bringing the New York-based edutainment franchise, Kidville, to Dubai in 2010. Two years later, she transformed the Kidville edutainment playbook into a comprehensive education-based nursery curriculum and attained certification from the Dubai Ministry of Education.
After exiting the education business, she noticed a gap in the market. A voracious reader of pop culture and avid researcher, she noticed there was a disconnect between the act of consuming magazine content, including advertisements, and acting upon purchase behaviour instigated by that content. And that’s when the initial concept of The Gaggler was born.
The Gaggler is an online publishing platform that provides regionally relevant content, with diverse points of view, and authentic storytelling. The platform features clickable actions for the viewer to deep dive into the topic or to efficiently make purchase decisions after reading product reviews, expert advice, or life hacks on its website. The Gaggler aims to enrich women’s thoughts, offer diverse perspectives and ideas, and create awareness about insightful topics specific to women.
