  1. Rocky Mountain High When Arati Shriram is not enjoying the environs of her stunning Isprava home, she’s climbing various summits to satiate her love for the mountains.

Currently pursuing her university studies back in Sweden with a major in Organization and Management, Nicolina’s India stint has taught her lessons of a lifetime. She says, “Based on my own knowledge of Indian companies the structure is usually hierarchic and that power is concentrated at the top. At Isprava, which has a well-organized structure and with various department managers, there is still a democratic and horizontal culture, which …
