Basis began with the vision of bridging the knowledge and trust gaps that women face while making financial decisions. While the number of financially independent women are on the rise in today’s society, there is just as much the absence of consumable content around helping them make informed decisions about their money. This was a gap that Founder and CEO Hena wanted to fill, and thus Basis was born.

Founded in 2018 by Hena Mehta and Dipika Jaikishan, Basis aims at building a future where women can make financially well-informed and independent decisions for themselves. This can be achieved through curated learning modules and educational content, community based outreach programmes and goal focused groups guided by secure networks of women guiding one another.

So no matter where you are in your financial journey, Basis will always be useful.
