Indian women are playing an increasingly crucial role in businesses today. Women are educated, skilled and ambitious enough to have perfected the art of balancing their personal and professional lives. It is still a fact that career – oriented women face a number of barriers while discovering their potential and identity, but it is safe to say that the climate is more conducive now, than it was 15 or 20 years ago. All over the world, women are coming forward and working their way to reclaim their power and authority in every field, and Indian women, an inspiration to all, are second to none in this respect. It is an honor to be a part of this formidable force, and gives us great joy to wish everyone a wonderful Women’s Day.

– Indian women are natural entrepreneurs: given the gendered conditioning we go through since childhood, we quickly learn the art of effective problem-solving and multitasking; they become our innate qualities. “Personal” women entrepreneurs always existed in Indian society- they run the household, like a business, optimizing and allocating resources to maximize efficiency, managing multiple vendors and “customers” and ensuring overall satisfaction. So, I think the emergence of “professional” women entrepreneurs in India was a long time coming, and given the opportunities and awareness becoming available now (even though it’s a long road ahead), it is here to stay.
– Women are the fabric of society as caregivers, nurturers, and organizers. Professionally, there is an unquestionable economic case for promoting and supporting women entrepreneurs; they constitute almost half of the population of the country and are a powerhouse of creativity, innovation, and sustainable initiatives: aspects that require a significant push within the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem. But personally, too, they are at least partially (if not primarily, in many cases) responsible for raising children, the future of the country, and hold a significant role in eliminating gender bias within kids, thereby creating an inclusive future for the country.

“Female leaders have constructively contributed to shaping the future of the world. Their success is attributed to their untiring hard work, persistence, and adamant optimism. Today, female professionals hailing from diverse backgrounds have marked their strong presence across industries. And, when we talk about the growth of Indian women entrepreneurs, specifically in the field of digital marketing, we see infinite possibilities; we see leading potential; we see a determination to revolutionize the digital realm”

Women are natural entrepreneurs and good multitaskers. They are efficient in solving abstract problems and are ready to face new challenges and adapt to new roles. Women are equal to men in all aspects of the work, the emergence of women entrepreneurs is mostly skill-based. Women have a good analytical mind, which helps in the expansion and growth of the business. The future for women entrepreneurs is very promising as we break the chains of gender bias women leaders are gearing up for the further expansion of the horizons of their capabilities.
India has emerged as one of the important economies in the world, women have an equal role to play in it. A gender bias economy could never be very sustainable. We find women in many of the important roles in India, who contributes to the county’s economy. Many of the unicorns and other companies are led by women entrepreneurs. Women have made the Indian workforce and economy stronger than before. However, a lot is still to be desired. Gender bias issues are prevalent in many tier II & III cities. In the recent future, we will witness more women entrepreneurs emerging from the small cities and achieving their dreams and contributing to the economic growth of the country.
