From Small Town Girl  to Social Technopreneur

Join Us for a Career Interrupted Book Launch 


Reena Gupta is a mom, a solo bootstrapped entrepreneur, an author, a work-life harmony coach, and an advocate of teaching entrepreneurship. She is an integral part of her community and serves in the city economic vitality committee and school superintendent advisory board. 


Growing up in a joint family in India with two dozen relatives, Reena always knew she was not alone and that a rising tide, indeed, lifts all boats. Having no business background, experience, or connections, Reena wrote her own script by emigrating to Nashville, TN where she created her two companies, Avankia and Target Recruit. Hiring a stay-at-home mom as her first employee left a big impression on Reena, and she knew that someday she would do more to help women and the underutilized talent pool. After a successful exit from TargetRecruit, one of her portfolio companies, Reena founded Mom Relaunch, to nurture and mentor women reentering the workforce. Using her experience, Reena wrote her new book, Career Interrupted, which teaches about balancing life’s 3-legged-stool; career, wellness, and family & friends.


Reena is a lifetime learner. She is an optimist. She is inspired by her kids every day. She is intrigued by traveling to new places, exploring new cultures, meeting people, exercising her mind through laughter yoga, and meditating.
