Kanika began with a dream of becoming a pilot, a dream that faced resistance in her conservative Marwari business family. Unfazed, she moved to Bombay, worked while in college, and eventually secured her dream job in aviation. However, life took an unexpected turn when she battled cancer.

Facing the challenge of cancer, Kanika decided to live life on her terms. After recovery, she relocated to Delhi with limited funds but an abundance of determination, embarking on her entrepreneurial journey. Initially focused on creating a marketplace for private planes, challenges arose when the first booked flight didn't materialize. Unperturbed, Kanika pivoted her business model overnight.

JetsetGo evolved from a marketplace to an aircraft management company. Kanika addressed core issues in the market—ensuring transparent pricing and reliable service. The company managed the largest fleet in the country without owning many aircraft, revolutionizing the aviation industry in India.

Kanika stressed the importance of empowering women and challenging societal norms. She shared her experiences of facing resistance due to gender stereotypes in the aviation industry. Kanika actively worked to change the narrative around gender and safety, advocating for women's roles in every aspect of aviation, including cockpit representation.

For aspiring entrepreneurs, especially women, Kanika's message is clear: believe in yourself and don't seek external validation. She encourages everyone to find pride in their achievements, focus on self-belief, and be unapologetically proud of their journey.
