Entrepreneur Panel: Renish Kamal, CEO at Fidget Toys

Renish Kamal is the Founder and CEO of Fidget Toys Ltd. What was once a side project, Renish’s hard work and dedication to her work has launched her business into success, and she does not take the title of CEO or Founder lightly. She has mastered all the skills needed to run a successful business including sales and marketing, Human Resources, and Public Relations. As a Waterloo graduate with a degree in Sociology and Geography, Renish took the Business Entrepreneurship course, sparking a love for designing and creating something truly her own. Some of Renish’s volunteer experiences include working as a leadership Coach for KidsNow at junior public schools. She also gets to showcase her artistic side at various events where she creates Kolums for traditional Hindu weddings. She is also a part of an all-women’s volleyball and basketball league. A significant accomplishment in Renish’s career is following her gut and quitting her corporate job to focus on Fidget Toys. She is proud to be recognized as a dynamic, strong Tamil woman affiliated with a hardware company, and has been invited to speak on various panels as a young woman entrepreneur. A platform such as Young Women in Business is important to Renish because supporting one another is vital to the success in life. Renish also states, “Culturally, I believe I've placed a responsibility on myself to be a role model to those within the South Asian communities to follow their values and dreams and not conform to the back seat in which our culture puts us in.”
