Meet Radha Vembu, India’s third-richest self-made woman billionaire

After Falguni Nayar became the richest women icon, Radha Vembu of Zoho is now India’s third-richest self-made woman billionaire. 

Radha Vembu, the product manager of Zoho Mail, has a net worth of $3.9 billion. Vembu, who owns a significant stake in the IT firm that creates web-based business tools, is the third Indian woman to be named to Hurun Research Institute’s top list, following Nykaa’s Falguni Nayar and Kiran Mazumdar Shaw.

Here is how Radha did it

Sridhar Vembu, her older brother, founded AdvenNet, a corporation that still exists today. The company united with Zoho Corporation in 2009 and began expanding. Radha Vembu joined this organisation in 2009 as the Zoho Mail product manager, and she still retains that position now. 

Zoho rose to be one of the top five corporate email providers in the world under Vembu’s leadership and hard work, contending globally with IT giants such as Microsoft and Google. She now oversees the Zoho workspace, which employs 250 people and is engaged in all of the Zoho Corporation’s products.

Who is Radha Vembu? 

Vembu, 50-year-old was born in Chennai on December 24, 1972. Her father  Sambamurthy Vembu was a stenographer at the Madras High Court. After completing her schooling at National Higher Secondary School in Chennai, she earned a degree in industrial management from the Indian Institute of Technology ( IIT ), Madras in 1997.

Vembu is well-known and respected for her distinct working style, which is unlike that of any other product manager. She provides her employees complete autonomy in carrying out their plans and feels that a bias-free workplace is critical to any company’s success. 

But that isn’t the only thing that distinguishes her from the country’s current billionaires. Vembu despises the fame and attention that comes with becoming India’s female millionaire. She prefers to stay out of the spotlight and feels that the quality of the product should take precedence over the individuals behind it. 

Zoho’s headquarters are in Chennai, and the company has 12 operations in nine countries.

Radha’s estimated Net Worth 

According to Forbes, Radha’s net worth is Rs 129 thousand crores as of April 2022. Her share in Zoho provides her with the majority of her wealth. With a total net worth of Rs 285 thousand crores, the Vembu siblings are ranked 55th on Forbes India Rich List 2021.
