The Pinnacle Fame Awards or PIFA 2018 may have wrapped up for the year, but everyone is still reeling under the euphoria.
It was a collaborative effort with Maa2Mom founded by Jyoti Agarwal and Goregaon Highway Pulse, founded by Anushree Chatterjee that exceeded the expectations when it came to the magnitude of the event that was held on 8th December 2018.
“I launched Maa2Mom in October 2015 with a vision to connect all mothers globally and inspire empower and motivate each other and make motherhood a celebration. PIFA 2018 was one of its kind awards happening in Mumbai, which had independent Jury comprising of people who have made a mark in their own space. In fact, I can add that it’s #RealPeople #RealAwards, where no nomination was charged from anyone and it’s open for men and women across the globe,” smiles Jyoti Agarwal, Founder and COO Maa2Mom.
When speaking to Anushree Chatterjee, the Founder of Goregaon Highway Pulse, she shared, “It was challenging yet gratifying to the hilt. It was just a question that was popped to me by Jyoti, Would you like to work on an annual awards event with me? and I immediately agreed.”
Regarding the event, Anushree further added, “We were 99% self-funded at PIFA 2018. However, we did do a lot of barter associations with some great brands as gifting partners such as Vardan Jewellers, Akshi Oils, Kerfs, etc. We even had a very good brand, GoKruze, as our travel partner, who enabled our participants from Kandivali to come in the comfort of an AC bus to and from the venue.”
The PIFA 2018 had over 20 categories ranging from sustainable living, education, fashion, travel, blogging, cuisine, environment, health and fitness and lots more.
All participating entrepreneurs were judged by a team of jury members such as Hemang Bhatt – CEO of HAS Juices, Ajoy Balkrishna – General Manager of Radisson Mumbai Goregaon, Era Tak – artist, filmmaker and writer, Dr. Samir Dalwai – Developmental and Behavioural Pediatrician & President – Indian Academy of Pediatrics, Kanika Pal – award-winning CSR expert and founder of SOCHE Foundation and Radha Shah – Mrs India Worldwide (UAE, 2017).
