About Achiiv

Achiiv is the only platform helping women entrepreneurs master business finance by offering insight, guidance and support for greater success and impact.

Achiiv was founded by Shubha Chakravarthy, a recovering banker and new entrepreneur frustrated by how hard it is for women entrepreneurs to access insider networks and the financial smarts they need to succeed in business.

Why Achiiv

Women will soon make up more than half of all business owners just in the United States. They are starting businesses at four times the rate of the overall population. 

Women of color are responsible for 64% of all new women-owned businesses being created.

Yet, women-owned businesses contribute only 4.3% of the total revenue of all businesses. Male-owned firms generate eight times that number. 

There’s more.

Only one in eight women-owned business generates more than a million dollars in revenue, whereas two out of every three male-owned businesses generate over $1 million in annual revenue.

The untapped opportunity is appalling – and immense. 

Women don’t get access to the money, mindset and financial knowhow they need to pull off starting a new business successfully – whether it’s a new hair salon or a world-changing life sciences venture.

In addition, women often succumb to self-limiting beliefs and behaviors in financial matters.

So their businesses never achieve their full potential.

Or worse, never get off the ground.

We can do better.

Achiiv was founded to help women entrepreneurs get the business and financial smarts they need to achieve business liftoff –  the kind that was only available to the select few.

Until now.

About the Founder

Achiiv was founded by Shubha Chakravarthy, a longtime veteran of the banking industry.

Shubha spent more than a decade managing the aftermath of the subprime mortgage crisis, and is intimately familiar with the financial services industry and its workings.

She’s worked for over twenty years in increasingly senior roles across risk, strategy and other functions at leading companies including HSBC, Allstate and McKinsey & Company.

Her real passion has always been figuring out how to help women find and fulfill their economic and financial potential, whether personally, in business careers or through their entrepreneurial endeavors.

She’s well-acquainted with the pains and rewards of entrepreneurship – Achiiv is her fifth shot, where she has finally found the sweet spot where finance, business, strategy and women’s financial progress all come together.

Shubha has an MBA (High Honors) in Finance and Strategy from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and an MS (Honors) in Financial Markets from the Illinois Institute of Technology. She’s an obsessive reader and problem solver, traits her husband and son find immensely annoying. She lives in the Chicagoland area.
