Who runs the world? Did you just say, a woman? The contribution of women to how much the world is growing is more than 50%. Gone are the days when women just excelled in the household chores and all great jobs belonged to the men. Women have consistently proven their potential to make it big in the professional world and in the world of business. It’s only with the participation of women that entrepreneurship is on the rise in India and around the world.
So, what is driving so many women to start businesses? What challenges do they face? What helps them grow? Where do they look for inspiration and mentorship? And, how are the men in their lives, helping and supporting them in living out their entrepreneurial dreams.
