Jalak Jobanputra and Shelly Kapoor Collins were the two Indian origin women on the list that commemorates the women, who are leaning in after the age of 40 and also creating momentum. Jalak Jobanputra is the founding partner of FuturePerfect Ventures -- an early stage venture capital fund based in NYC with a global focus. While, Shelly Kapoor Collins is the founder and CEO of Rootsquare, a social media based fund-raising and mobilisation platform for nonprofits and political campaigns. 'Forty Women to Watch over 40' was created by Christina Vuleta and Whitney Johnson to bring awareness to the reality that innovation gets even better with age. The list celebrates women who are upending the perception that 40 is past your prime. "They are reinventing, leaning in, and creating momentum that will be felt by those beyond their community and field," it said. The winners were selected from over 1,000 nominees around the world, spanning a variety of sectors from arts and sciences to politics and entertainment and include social entrepreneurs and corporate change-makers as well.
