Summentor Pro was founded in 2016 by Suhaib Ahmed and Nitika Shahi.

As per Nitika, Summentor Pro has a diverse portfolio, catering to the construction and real estate sector, MSME and start-up markets, the rural development sector, women empowerment, and the defense sector. The entire idea is based on bringing together innovators, policy makers, solution providers, and business owners in one forum to discuss and implement solutions to problems on the ground. Through an enhanced network, Summentor Pro provides an informative platform for the stakeholders.

On the topic of changes in marketing, she acknowledged that social media had been part of the marketing space for a while, but it gained significant momentum during the Covid period, especially in the MSME and start-up sectors. The digital transformation had revolutionized marketing dynamics, leading to significant growth in sales and marketing for many businesses.
