Monica Malhotra
Monica Malhotra

CEO, The Gaggler
Monica is a passionate entrepreneur always looking for ways to create something with a positive impact. This passion has led her to start-up businesses in education and more recently in online publishing. Her diverse 25-year career has seen her live in the US, the UK, and the UAE – having worked across industries ranging from financial management consulting and pharmaceuticals to real estate and investment banking on her resumé.

Monica kickstarted her entrepreneurial journey by bringing the New York-based edutainment franchise, Kidville, to Dubai in 2010. Two years later, she transformed the Kidville edutainment playbook into a comprehensive education-based nursery curriculum and attained certification from the Dubai Ministry of Education.

After exiting the education business, she noticed a gap in the market. A voracious reader of pop culture and avid researcher, she noticed there was a disconnect between the act of consuming magazine content, including advertisements, and acting upon purchase behaviour instigated by that content. And that’s when the initial concept of The Gaggler was born.
