Jaya was listed in the top 10 most influential women in tech and has also been named India's most trustworthy CEO.

She wanted to work with people rather than systems, so she studied finance and strategy in an MBA program at Cornell University in USA.
During her MBA, investment banking caught her interest, so she joined CIBC Oppenheimer as their Director.
She then got into technology shaping up large deals in USA for HCL Technologies.
After that, she moved to management consulting where she worked on setting up large businesses for Accenture clients.
Then, she joined Standard Chartered Bank as Executive Vice President heading global technology and strategic transformation.
A personal situation made her think of the next stage of her career, and she thought of bringing all her corporate experiences to build something valuable for the banking industry to help the bankers. And her entrepreneurial journey started.
Today she is CEO at BCT Digital and Independent Director at UTI Mutual Funds.
During her career, she was primarily driven by demands on a personal and professional front.
