The inspiration behind Vestige was to bridge the gap between the promises and the reality of the direct selling industry. All it takes for a vision to come true is persistence and hard work. The journey throws multiple challenges at these entrepreneurs, but they stay on the course and ensure that their consistency reaps results. One such person is Mr. Gautam Bali, Managing Director of Vestige.
Mr. Bali comes from a humble Punjabi background and his inclination toward entrepreneurship was evident right from his childhood. He always dreamt of creating a business that could add value to the lives of millions. He grew up in Jammu and completed his graduation from Jammu University. Mr. Bali took it slow and grabbed all opportunities to learn. His entry into the world of business goes back to the late 1980s, when entrepreneurship was not a common pursuit. In fact, a decent government job was sufficient for a good life. Youngsters, especially from humble backgrounds, were more inclined towards finding steady jobs. His first job was at Pfizer and that marked the beginning of his connection with the pharma industry.
Later, he associated with multiple direct selling companies and worked in various top management positions. He became the pioneer of the direct selling revolution in India. He gained professional expertise and worked on his dream project of launching Vestige in 2004. Vestige started as a joint venture between Mr. Gautam Bali, Mr. Kanwar Bir Singh, and Mr. Deepak Sood, who hold prime positions in the organization nearly 2 decades later. The three started with the vision of creating a trustworthy Indian brand that would look beyond profits and protect the interests of its distributors.
The inspiration behind Vestige was to bridge the gap between the promises and the reality of the direct selling industry. The 3 founders have worked tirelessly over the years to offer a robust platform to Indian distributors and their visionary leadership has helped the brand to scale great heights.
Mr. Bali’s vision of “health connects us all” has enabled the company to bring about a transformation in preventive wellness with the help of its world-class products. The range of high-quality health and wellness products that are sold using the distributorship model is helping resolve nutrient deficiencies and multiple health issues that Indians face.
Over the years, Vestige has grown as a global organization that is offering college students, housewives as well as working professionals, equal opportunities to take charge of their lives and grow financially. The vision also includes the offer of a horizontal working model that facilitates complete freedom of working, irrespective of seniority or role in the organization.
Vestige has evolved as a brand that is contributing significantly to the economy and the Atmanirbhar Bharat mission. Vestige is doing this by sourcing local products and carrying out production processes within the country. This is helping to empower suppliers, partners, associates and customers to work as a close-knit community.
It is phenomenal how three enterprising men have taken a company that they started from scratch to great heights today. We hope Vestige continues the good work and empowers more self-driven individuals.
