Indian-American Business Women Ranked Into America's Top 100 Richest Self-made Women

Four Indian-American women have secured their place into the top 100 richest self-made women of America, enlisted by Forbes.     

Forbes has recently named the top 100 most richest self-made women in America, which comprises four Indian-origin business tycoons—Jayashree Ullal, Neerja Sethi, Neha Narkhede, and Indra Nooyi.

Mrs. Ullal serves as president and CEO of computer networking firm Arista Networks and has ranked 15th on the list. Her net worth extends to almost 2.4 billion USD, and she owns up to 2.4 percent stocks of Arista Networks. The organization has recorded an annual revenue of about 4.4 billion. Mrs. Ullal also serves on the board of directors of cloud computing company Snowflake.

Another pride to the troop, Neerja Sethi, has been placed in 25th position on the list. Mrs. Sethi, along with her husband Bharat Desai, co-founded the IT consulting and outsourcing firm Syntel, which was later bought by a French IT firm for nearly 3.4 billion USD. Mrs. Sethi has earned up to 510 million USD as her stake in the very deal.

Young Indian-American Neha Narkhede, co-founder and former chief technology officer of Confluent, has been ranked 50th in the same. The software engineer-turned-enterpreneur’s net worth extends to about 520 million USD. She extended an enhanced support in developing the open-source messaging system to develop LinkenIn’s massive influx of data. She is currently handling her new company, a fraud detection firm called Oscilar, recording revenues of up to 586 million USD. She owns around six percent of the organization.

The former chairperson and CEO of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi has been ranked 77th on the list, with a net worth of about 350 million USD. The 67-year-old’s journey with PepsiCo extended to almost 24 years, and is remarkably noted as one of corporate America’s few female CEOs.

These Indian-American women have climbed the ladder of America's richest women in the self-made criteria, and have risen as an inspiration to several other fellow women in the U.S.
