  • Engaging pragmatically with the business operations at the young age of 14, Varsha Vishnu Prasad was taught and mentored by his father to learn the business nuances that later became the stepping stone for her career. When the foundation stone of Crust ‘n’ Crumb was laid 16 years ago, Varsha grew up along with it as a part of the system and later resumed her position as its MD. Taking full responsibility to drive Crust ‘n’ Crumb to the pinnacle of success despite her formal education in different arenas, Varsha’s professional journey has been quite challenging till now. Leaving no stones unturned to lead the brand of Crust ‘n’ Crumb through turfs and turds, Varsha Vishnu Prasad refers to herself as a second-generation entrepreneur who met the challenges out there with explicit professionalism despite having any prior experiences. Learning about business management through various courses rather than a full-time formal degree has enriched her intellectuality with much broader and unique concepts of business administration.
