Seema Varma Otoya
They're my school
Executive Director, Strategic & Operational Initiatives, Beachbody. Harvard Business School grad.
Seema would make an excellent entrepreneur because she is passionate, driven, thoughtful, and has a bias for action. When she puts her mind ...
to something, she immediately starts executing and overcoming challenges as needed. While in her Global Business Development role at Disney, she led Disney's growth in China from strategy to execution. Her ability to move to China, a new culture and foreign language, and experience such professional and personal success, speaks volumes to her adaptability and capabilities. When she decided she wanted to pursue this current start-up idea, I was very impressed with how fast she moved to collect consumer insight, leverage her network to meet with other entrepreneurs for advice, and set-up a minimum viable product for testing (in a nicely branded way!).
She would also be a wonderful partner for someone to work with, or business leader to work for. Seema and I partnered together while at business school to co-lead the HBS Bhangra Team two years in a row. She was a great leader and a collaborative partner who helped make sure we delivered an amazing, winning performance, all while having a blast doing it. More recently when I was diagnosed with a serious medical condition, Seema displayed such tremendous gestures of compassion and support for which I will always be thankful.
Seema would be an excellent add to the FounderDating community and I strongly vouch for her!
