Sushma Sharma, the founder and CEO of Konversai, is on a mission to democratize knowledge and make the world a better place by facilitating meaningful connections and conversations. Her company, a live video-based knowledge-sharing platform that connects seekers and providers of knowledge or specialized information, enables one-on-one interactions with higher levels of personalization than those made possible by the competing firms in the burgeoning industry.
Trained as a Corporate lawyer, Sushma holds two master’s degrees in law from Columbia Law School (where she was a Human Rights Scholar) and the University of Oxford (where she was a Radhakrishnan British Chevening Scholar). Preceding the founding of Konversai in 2015, Sushma was a lawyer at two major law firms in New York City—Sherman & Sterling and Kirkland & Ellis. She also spent over six years leading a highly coveted post-graduate law program (PCLL) at City University of Hong Kong, where she was actively involved in the policymaking on legal education in Hong Kong.
Sushma currently lives in New York City with her daughter, Leela.
