Be it in e-Commerce, education, investing, travel, fashion, retail, fitness, hiring, or anything & everything under the sun, women entrepreneurs are proceeding with gumption and unbridled enthusiasm to change the world around them. They are eager to make a difference with their ideas, seek solutions that have never been sought, fight diseases & social norms, run successful ventures, generate employment for many, and give rise to new sustainable ecosystems. Each of them is scripting their own success story in today's new age world.
With the consistent developments in the Indian startup ecosystem, more and more women are chasing the entrepreneurial dream and flourishing in their ventures. However, a recent report states that only two Indian cities have made it to the list of the 50 most favourable global places for women to work. India's Silicon Valley, Bengaluru ranked 40th, while Delhi was at 49th place. This survey was conducted by the tech giant Dell in partnership with the consultancy firm IHS Markit. The ranking-based on inputs from women entrepreneurs in India, policymakers, venture capitalists, media, and academicians-measures a city's ability to attract and support those women who want to grow their businesses.
According to the National Sample Survey, only 14 percent of the businesses in India are run by women entrepreneurs. Most of the companies are bootstrapped and run on a small scale. The global disparity is evident in a report which says nearly 126 million women have their own business across the globe, while Indian women linger around the eight million mark. A paradoxical statement is given that India is the second-most populous nation in the world. These wonder women are inspiring other ladies to venture on the path of entrepreneurship through their success stories comprising personal struggles and challenges. As a result, India is steadily rising up the ranks when it comes to a favourable startup environment coupled with some solid backing from the Indian government.
