Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide Bachelor of Business alumna (2006) Akshaya Borkar (nee Godbole) is recognised as a bronze winner in the Young Female Entrepreneur category of the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

Akshaya is based in Melbourne and travelled to New York to attend the awards, which honour female executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run.

Being a creative person, Akshaya recognised a gap in the creative business market and designed her business, The Art and Craft Gallery to help artists showcase their products to a global market-place.

"When you create a piece of art, when you draw something, paint something, take an awesome photo, sculpt something which blows people’s mind, what do you do with it? How do you make more meaningful impact? How do you, as an artist, have a sustainable flourishing business from a gallery which can charge ridiculous amounts of commission? Or at a market every second weekend to people looking to buy commodities while failing to appreciate the skills, sweat and passion for making those creations?"

Through the online gallery, Akshaya inspires artists to be creative and motivated and provides a medium where they can more easily and effectively showcase their products to the world. Currently Akshaya showcases over 90 artists from nine countries!
