I met Ridhi after referrals from two of the people I respect most-- always a great start. She didn't disappoint-- anyone who meets her will ... be convinced by her intelligence, enthusiasm, and analysis. There should be an expression: "You can't say no to Ridhi". And, her company needs to exist- as in, this company will change lives, substantially, and for the better.

Jacqueline Zimoch
They're my school  •  Previously Program Analyst, Mathematica Policy Research. Previously Program Associate, Mathematica Policy Research.
I have known Ridhi Tariyal since 2010, when I met her at Harvard, where she was a MS-MBA candidate at MIT and Harvard Business School throug ... h the competitive HST Biomedical Entrepreneurship Program. I admire Ridhi for many reasons: as the CEO and Co-Founder of NextGen Jane, she seeks to ensure that women everywhere take control of their reproductive healthcare needs at all stages in their lives. As a Harvard Business School Blavatnik Fellow, she draws on her rigorous education as an emerging leader in life sciences entrepreneurship. She has a wealth of knowledge in many sub-sectors of the healthcare industry and she provides strategic, big-picture insights. What I admire most is her willingness to share her experiences from an extensive portfolio of work, and provide time and mentorship to others. Without her kindness and genuine care for my professional development, I don't know that I would have applied to the Harvard Kennedy School - Harvard Business School joint degree MPP-MBA program. While other applicants spent thousands of dollars on graduate school consultants, I had the distinct pleasure of being coached by Ridhi, whom I consider a tremendous mentor and friend. My heart sank when Ridhi left Boston for the West Coast, and I envy the entrepreneurs and founders that will have the pleasure of learning from such a brilliant, trail-blazing entrepreneur!

Laura Kitson
We worked together  •  Associate Director, Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy, School of Social Policy & Practice at the University of Pennsylvania.
Ridhi was a Blavatnik Fellow and very eager to explore and select the most successful Harvard technology that would have the best potential ... for developing into a startup during her fellowship. And she did it! NextGenJane has secured funding and she has built a great community across the US by hosting small meet and greets to discuss her product and receive feedback from women all over the country. Ridhi is extremely intelligent, driven and persuasive, and I have no doubt that she will turn her product into a household name.
