Kishore Biyani had first invested in Industree in 2009, which is in to designing, retailing and exporting of a wide range of products, including apparel under the 'Mother Earth' brand name.

Bangalore-based, Industree was co-founded by Neelam Chhiber nearly two decades back along with Poonam Bir Kasturi and started designing and retailing home accessories, but made by village artisans.

They worked through established NGOs and self-help groups and retailed through Industree branded stores, the first one which opened in 1996 in Bangalore.
