“The saying ‘we’re all in the same storm, but in different boats’ can definitely be applied to entrepreneurship. The resources that the WEL Institute brings to female founders is uplifting and necessary to empower us and foster a community of founders with different backgrounds that we can learn from, says Apoorva.
Apoorva started her entrepreneural journey with her dad, Sree Chintala when she was in high school. The father daughter duo bootstrapped the company for three years, put all the available family savings into the company believing in their mission and dream.
The idea for Clocr (pronounced “Clock-er,” as in short for “Cloud Locker”) came when Apoorva lost her grandfather and saw her father struggling emotionally and mentally with digital assets and legacy management.
Clocr exists to eliminate the stress and confusion during an emergency or death and showcases Clocr’s commitment to providing its users complete peace of mind.
