Filmapia

The 2008 Great Recession would have pushed back many entrepreneurs, but for Ivy Manohara, it was an opportunity to go after her dream. She decided to use this to set up her business: Filmapia. Having lost their jobs to the recession, she and her husband Ben binge-watched cinema at home and tried to guess the location the film was shot.The game turned into a blog and then into a successful business. They created an online database for films with the shooting locations listed down, which caught the eye of filmmakers. After eight years of research on film locations and the business's work, they launched Filmapia. Ivy and Ben’s background stuck out, and they faced a ton of challenges - and resistance from their family - but as they say, teamwork makes the dream work. Her only hope is that entrepreneurial education gathers steam in India so that other entrepreneurs do not have to face what she did.
