Understanding you as an individual is how we start the journey of finding you the right life partner. Your life, your experiences, your family fabric, your world-view and your vision for your future - there is a lot to know and we endeavour to understand your thought process through the period of your membership. This helps us connect you with that right someone, from wherever in the world they may be.
Our membership pool consists of industrialists, business people, corporate professionals, entrepreneurs, and celebrities from across the world with the majority located in India and the United States. Belonging to well to do, progressive families, they are well-educated, cosmopolitan, global individuals who are seriously looking to get married not because they are incomplete on their own but because they believe that life is even more beautiful when shared with the right partner.
About 60% of our members are on this magical journey with us looking for the right person for the first time.
Then there are those who have healed themselves from their past and believe in finding happiness with someone again. About 30% of our members across various age groups are looking to find love one more time.
Life experiences teach us a lot, particularly resilience and acceptance especially when we have had the wisdom of being over 55. The ability to bounce back from adversity and to keep the zest for life, laughing, sharing, dreaming and being open to finding companionship. About 10% of our members are at this stage of their lives.
Our members represent the crème de la crème of society and demand nothing but the best quality in service that money can buy - and being selected by them as a matrimonial search firm anchored on our core values, team experience and empathy is a testimony that makes us truly proud.
Our approach has always been focused on quality be it externally by way of our membership pool or internally by our team. The VFE core team is a group of people between the ages of 30-65 who share the passion and vision of our Founder and CEO, Anuradha Gupta. What sets them apart is not only their varied global exposure and diverse backgrounds but also their strength of character when faced with adversity.
Their range and depth of experience helps them to understand where people are coming from and enables them to relate to different circumstances without any judgement. It is the belief that, in life, we have no control over the cards that are dealt to us but what is in our hands is how we choose to react to them. That is what truly defines the team at VFE.
ANURADHA GUPTAFounder CEO & Lead Matchmaker
Anuradha is an Indian-American based out of San Francisco, USA and New Delhi, India. She grew up in a small mountain town in India and has spent her formative years in the country. Over the last 25 years she has lived in Melbourne, London, Los Angeles, New York and New Delhi.
While she was born into a business family, she married a professional from the world of finance, not just because it was meant to be but because she has always believed that what truly matters is how two people connect. Her background in psychology along with her own cross-cultural marriage continue to help her in getting a good understanding and appreciation of the challenges involved when one is looking for their life partner in what has become a really small world.
Anuradha is an angel investor and also chairs the family non-profit foundation. The non-profit works very closely with critically unwell children and helps in bringing children off the streets in India.
While she has a very busy work schedule, Anuradha loves spending time with her children, exploring the world, trying out new things and is drawn to better understanding eastern philosophies and the larger significance of "karma". She believes in delving inwards for a greater sense of purpose to discover who we are and the role that we want to play in life.
