Her Story

Renuka grew up as the youngest of three children, the apple of her parent’s eyes. She did her schooling in Mangalore and her graduation while living in Manipal, a picturesque university town in South India. She came to Bahrain in 1995 to work for BMMI. After a 7-year stint there she formed her first company in 2002. The concept of 100% foreign ownership was new in Bahrain then.

After some struggle she saw the light of day on August 17th 2002 when Stardust Co. WLL was incorporated. Born with a mathematical and business mind it did not take long for her to reach the height of success .

Two other companies followed suit. Her self-belief and her vision of proving that a woman is just as capable of succeeding in any environment was realised.

Her Interests

Besides being an entrepreneur and businesswoman, Renuka is passionate about the environment. She has created a web-based application called dZara to encourage the planting of trees to help bolster Bahrain’s reputation as the land of a million palms. She is also involved in providing aid to children with special needs and to underprivileged youth. She has set up a registered charitable foundation in India.
