Make Sense is a weekly series dedicated to talking about startup stories from the past, hysterical or mind-numbing blunders, how to do better. We also discuss how tech impacts us and how we can raise the bar when it comes to the ethics, morals, and standards in the tech industry.

Devanshi Garg Sareen is a skincare enthusiast and mother first, and a founder second. Hailing from New York City by way of Iran, India, the UK, New Zealand and Germany, she learned early on to look at people through the lens of shared human experiences. In 2019, her experience as an innovation consultant for Big Beauty conglomerates, and pain points with her own skincare journey led her to launch Motif. Motif is a forward thinking beauty brand that merges modern science with innovation – determined to raise the standard of skincare for everyone.
