WE ARE PISTACHIO
is built by relocating spouses for each other
We are Pistachio was born out of rejection & re-direction of two relocating spouses.
Aditi was no stranger to relocation. Having relocated across 4 countries in 5 years, she found herself alone each time. She decided that someone had to solve the problem. Her mantra became, “If it is to be, it is up to me!”
At the same time, Deepali – an entrepreneur – was facing the same problems as she relocated to the US from India. From being a job-creator to a job-seeker, facing rejection was tough. Her mantra became, “If you see a problem, go solve it.”
Serendipity bought these women together. Over a cup of coffee, they realized that the journey of relocating spouses is an adventure, and yet these women are left alone to navigate that.
In Jan 2020, We Are Pistachio was born out of a deeply personal problem that Aditi & Deepali wanted to solve not just for themselves, but for all relocating spouses all over the world.
