Surbhi Shah completed her education at a renowned school and college in Mumbai after which she successfully completed her Masters in Marketing and sales management with a diploma in textile designing from a leading institute for nurturing talent and has produced some of the best and extremely successful alumni. Her work experience not only came with her qualifications but with real-life circumstances that she was exposed to at an early age prior to completing her graduation. This was reinforced further by working in her family-owned textile mill and an export house. As a young apprentice, she headed the sales and exports division of this successful family enterprise.
Being on the factory floor gave her deep insights into the technical and production know-how of an efficient and profitable textile mill which included the entire gamut of its operations from the manufacturing process to its final production. A priceless experience that further helped her to fine-tune her skills in the business processes of this facility.
Her career was further enhanced with her exposure and experience with another family-owned business. This was a leading house of jewelry that was established almost a century ago in 1890. Perhaps one of the oldest and most prestigious jewelers to the likes of celebrities, Royal families from many parts of the world, the firm specializes in custom exquisite jewelry. The next generation of the family continues this legacy of fine jewelry. Today the firm continues to cater to a global audience keeping in tune with market realities and an ever-changing global world.

Right from the selection of the site, to its implementation Surbhi single-handedly led its setup. This included negotiations with several stakeholders, financial, legal, government, and the community at large. She continues to be on the board and plays a key leadership role in its functioning to date.
