Aastha Jha is the founder and CEO at Kraftstar Management and The Wedding Journals
Weddings are the most memorable occasion in any person’s life. On this day, any individual will look forward to enjoying, without having to care about the arrangements or other required measures. To ensure that, the assistance of a wedding management company becomes essential.
This is where, Aastha Jha, a talented alumnus of PESIT College, Bangalore has carved a niche for herself in a very short time. Aastha’s journey began from arranging small-budget birthday parties and get-togethers. Let us know about her journey and how she became the name that must be reckoned with in the competitive field of event management.
Aastha was one of the siblings of two children born in the Jha household of Patna. From childhood, she wanted to do something of her own. She completed her school-level education at Krishna Niketan, Patna. After that, she qualified in the entrance exam of Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) and enrolled in the Electrical and Electronics Engineering course at PESIT College.
The birth of Kraftstar Management
However, her dream wasn’t realized immediately after she completed her graduation. In college, although known for her organizational skills, she wasn’t permitted to work in an actual company during her ongoing studies period.
She joined the renowned insurance company AIG as a risk manager with a very handsome pay packet. Aastha also decided to work at an event management company to gain some practical experience in the field, in addition to her main job. Routine workdays of 18-19 hours and no weekends gave her the savoir-faire and the information she would need to start a company of her own. After 6 months at AIG, she started the venture, Kraftstar Management with her brother Satweek Jha.
Kumar Ankit (Satweek) is a co-founder at Kraftstar Management, is a multi-faceted personality. From a consummate entrepreneur to a visionary with celluloid dreams. Satweek’s voyage of self-discovery and success has been a fascinating one along with his three years of experience as an event manager.
The journey after that
Aastha & Satweek had the full support of her family. Rather than aiming for a big shot at the first try, her company started small in the field of event management. Her first project had a budget of 4000 rupees. With properly placed resources and correctly chosen digital marketing initiatives, the word of her company started spreading. Their excellent services and easy approachability was the key factor in getting further assignments from the best advertisement possible; references from the clients to other people.
Soon, their business picked up pace and they started getting inquiries for the arrangement of weddings. They bagged their first wedding event contract within six months of starting their company. Their first job was massively successful and the client was immensely pleased. In the meantime, Aastha quit her job by the end of 2017 and started to work full-time in this budding venture.
Their unique services
After arranging 15 weddings at the end of their first year, inquiries started increasing and the company started flourishing. Their popularity was reliant on a very unique feature: they provide end-to-end services.
They have experienced and skilled teams ready to provide any type of service the client requires. They have done a lot of destination weddings in several cities of India like Goa, Delhi, Pune, Chennai, Kolkata, Udaipur, and other cities.
Other than that, they charge a flat fee and don’t believe in working for commissions.
Along with comprehensive services and management of high-budget wedding, Aastha has started several other ventures that complement her primary business of wedding event management. She owns a periodical named The Wedding Journals, which can inform the interested parties about the current trends of fashion or other necessary topics. They own a travel business called “Explore air services” which can be a great support for a destination wedding.
