Priyanka Sehgal
Founder, Sparkles Dating

Priyanka is a media professional with 20 years of extensive experience across TV & Digital with successful stints in India’s leading media conglomerates including Network 18, Times Television Network, and NDTV. With rich experience in strategy, product, growth, monetization, content, programming & partnerships, Priyanka has today shifted gears and entered the startup world with the launch of Sparkles Dating.

COVID has kept singles locked inside without human connection for the last 18 months. Today, singles are swiping left and right and still fail to make genuine, in-person connections. Sparkles Dating uses the power of AI to match the right people with hyper-personalized experiences to form a genuine connection.

For too long self-motivated entrepreneurs have navigated the minefield of challenges to launching a global company with very little support. The last thing you should bet on in this situation is an unproven team that you don’t trust. GSD Venture Studios travels to every corner of the globe inviting resilient teams to establish partnerships that ensure organizations grow the right way, without games or gimmicks.
