Preeti Gaikwad, founder of the business said “2014 has seen a phenomenal growth in the sharing economy such as crowdfunding, social media, collective purchasing etc. The momentum is expected to grow in the coming years and there couldn’t have been a better time to launch Two Corners. We aim to leverage the best of the sharing economy.”

Raghavendra Mutt, Co-Founder of Two Corners added “I’m extremely excited to be associated with Two Corners and really pleased about the fact that the launch was held in Hyderabad, which is turning into a hubspot for Startups.

Looking ahead, I visualise Two-Corners to be a bridge between me and the connoisseurs of Hand-Crafted Jewellery.”
