GLR: Hi Jasbina! Please tell us a bit more about yourself and your company

JA: Intersections Match is a global matchmaking and dating coaching company that was started in 2007, and has served countless singles in their 20s through 60s-plus since then. I’m a finalist in OPRAH’S search for a TV Host, you may have seen me in the media including the New York Times, Inc, Business Week, SF Chronicle, Huffington Post, San Jose Mercury News, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post & Entrepreneur Magazine. I also moderated/participated on panels at Harvard Business School, Wharton, Northwestern & Columbia. Previously I practiced law in San Francisco and Chicago. I got my B.A/M.A. in Philosophy from Vanderbilt University and JD from the University of Michigan Law School.

GLR: What is your niche market?

JA: My niche market is:

1. Specialization in globally-oriented Indian men and women 20s through 60s-plus

2. Commitment-oriented men and women of ALL ethnicities

GLR: What led you to feel that you wanted to pursue a career helping singles?

JA: While I was practicing law, I took stock of my life and thought about what I most desired for my future. Three things came to mind: 1 Professionally, I wanted to create a venture of my own that made a meaningful impact on people’s lives; 2 Personally, I wanted to have kids, be hands-on in raising them, and maintain a great relationship with my husband, and 3 I wanted to have as much flexibility over my time as possible. Given those three strong desires, and the void I felt existed for South Asians who didn’t desire an arranged marriage, the idea for Intersections Match came to me.

GLR: Do you have any unique stories about working in this industry?

JA: I was asked my take on Netflix, the Indian Matchmaking show by a prominent South Asian publication in the US – my feature shares my thoughts: South Asian Times

GLR: Do you have any words of encouragement or reminders for existing Matchmakers/Dating Coaches & newcomers?

JA: If we haven’t connected as yet, please feel free to reach out to introduce yourself and let me know who you serve – it’s always great to explore potential collaboration opportunities!

GLR: Thanks Jasbina! Last question – How do you feel about collaborating with other matchmakers and dating coaches?

JA: I love to collaborate! I’ve collaborated with multiple matchmakers, including paying match referral fees, paying client referral fees, and making client referrals.
