Anmol Bambrah caught the entrepreneurial bug last summer when she was inspired by famous entrepreneurs like Tai Lopez, Elon Musk and Lilly Singh.
The Buffalo native, who recently graduated with a degree in medical anthropology and a minor in public health, felt conflicted about her path throughout college. Finding a way to pursue her passions started with Blackstone. “I don’t have a business background, but entrepreneurship is for everyone,” she says. Anmol started attending Blackstone events last semester, and has made a strong effort to attend every workshop this year.
Recently, Anmol started work on a venture inspired by her and her teammates’ Indian culture. Viachosen is a matchmaking application for Southeast Asians who are looking for serious relationships. Traditionally, the culture tends to look down upon dating and favors arranged marriages. Viachosen aims to modernize the experience and giving younger users the power to make their own dating decisions. Anmol is working on her venture this summer within the Buffalo Student Sandbox, a program sponsored by Blackstone in which students have the opportunity to work on their venture for eight weeks. At the end of the program, participants pitch their idea for the chance to win up to $10,000 in resources.
