I was a consultant and complete #Workaholic- crazy work hours, impossible deadlines & demanding clients were part of the game. Life was fast & furious and I loved it. Just when I wanted to push higher, my little angel came to this world. Her adorable smile and affection transformed me completely. Like every#mom, I wanted to provide her the best care without giving up on my professional aspirations. Not willing to give up I looked for good day cares with flexible/spontaneous services and that’s when I realized how difficult it is to find the right one. Being the#Ambitious #Problemsolver person I am, I thought of creating an accessible, flexible & trustworthy Childcare ecosystem with the help of other women entrepreneurs who are a part of our network.
I had a successful corporate career & was enjoying the festival called “Life”. It got even better with arrival of my beautiful baby girl. Determined to strike a balance, got back to work but found myself stretching at home & work. Being the #Dotingmother #Caringwife #Committedemployee & a #funfriend I am, I felt I was missing something. Blessed with a sunshine boy, my resolve to make things work doubled. Heading gender diversity at one of the leading companies, I tackled challenges that women faced from close quarters. The idea of creating an accessible and quality child care clicked instantly.

ECCE Expert, PROEVES
I, Dr.(Prof.)Pooja Srivastava Dewan have a background in child psychology and that makes me a fiercely active voice of children. When in today's times parents are busy in monotonous daily routines,teachers are caught up in the pressures of curriculum, what we really miss is giving our children the quality time they deserve. Children have an immense quality of absorbance and we as adults form the medium from which they absorb.We need to pause and think to come to levels of children's minds.Each child is a canvas to not just our imagination but an extension of their own. Having done masters and doctoral research in child psychology , the one thing I seem to really learn is children are individuals in theirown respects and we as adults need to respect this.

As a Technology expert I was a complete workhorse chasing deadlines, presentations, training, office parties were all part of life. I was a firm believer of work hard and party harder until I experienced motherhood. Every day when I see my daughter grow, I feel that the most beautiful phase of my life is taking shape and this is by far the most prestigious promotion I have got. I want to grow PROEVES technology platform and its each module under my supervision. It’s great to work with fellow mom colleagues who easily understand my limitations and appreciate my dedication and focus towards work.

I am a business professional & fashion designer with experience spanning designing, merchandising, sales & business development, accounting, store management, team management and customer relationship management. After delivering our pretty, darling daughter I wanted to do something from home and spend more time with her. Going out in the market, searching for fabrics, laces, dealing with tailors and karigars didn't really seem possible. Coming across Proeves made me realise that I can work from home and help moms like me who can focus on work leaving their kids at trustworthy daycare centres / preschools listed with us.
The Versatile Eve
A free spirited person who refused to take life seriously before the birth of my child. I took my child's foundation years seriously and I now kind of take it easy. Coming from a corporate background with experience in service excellence, projects management and process enhancements, I was doing well in my career till I realized I have another "nappy project" to handle back home. ProEves just feels like an extension of the Mommy within me with the corporate hat on. And this time, its for a reason to make this a better place for parents and their little munchkins.
