Coming from an Agarwal family, Ridhi proudly says "Entrepreneurship is a double edged sword. Letting go of a fixed salary at placements is tough, but being a Marwari, I feel entrepreneurship is in my blood." Ridhi Agarwal shunned campus selections as she is busy working on a startup idea, an online grocery store. This marks her second venture, while the first one was an online library which she started 2007 called ‘xelf.com’. She started this with her hard earned savings of 4 lakh.
