Sapna Shankar


Mrs. Sapna Shankar is the champion CEO of ‘Belur Products’, a prominent establishment with a brand renowned for creating and manufacturing organic incense sticks which possess distinct and unique properties. Based out of the Palace City of Mysuru, Karnataka, it was founded in the 1980s by Late Mr. B Y Umashankar and since then, the company has been consistently flourishing in the agarbatti industry under the capable leadership of Sapna Shankar. Born in 1973 to Mr. V S Krishnamurthy and Mrs. V K Susheela, she grew up in an orthodox family along with an elder brother. Subsequently, she completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce from NMKRV College for Women, Bangalore. Following her marriage to Late Mr. B Y Umashankar, she settled to lead a happy and simple domestic life as an ordinary homemaker content with taking care of her family and 2 children, Aakarsh Belur and Arjun Belur. Except for the common occasional stressors, there were no major sources of worry in her blissful life. Being an only daughter and the younger sibling, she was brought up by a loving and affectionate family. Moreover, hailing from a traditional background and growing up abiding by conventional rules, she never imagined that her scope of duties would go beyond looking after the household. Life had other plans for her and so out of nowhere, she was suddenly thrown into the deep end of facing the outside ruthless and competitive world of business as she was forced to take over the reins of managing the family enterprise after the demise of her husband, who used to operate and oversee everything related to the company. Left without choice after her smooth life took an unexpected and cruel turn, she embarked on a challenging new path while dealing with her personal struggles. Beginning in December 2019, she went onto become the first woman entrepreneur in the family and hasn’t looked back.
