These would be the traits that would perfectly set apart a successful female entrepreneur.

Observe it, then learn it and give your best shot. Entrepreneurship is not an easy task for anyone, especially if you are women. It is very important to build a team who shares the same vision as yours and as a leader you should practice the behavior you want your team to follow.”

I believe entrepreneurship comes more naturally to women because of their multi micro and macro management qualities. But most of the times women hesitate to take the plunge which they shouldn’t in anyway. More confidence building and most importantly self-realization is required to encourage them into converting their energies to more economy-oriented ‘working for your own self’ roles which fit into the more conventional definition of ‘entrepreneurship’. So, dream, desire and sew your own wings.”

Shuchi Gangwal, Owner & Principal Designer, Kypsa

“As an ardent supporter for Feminism, celebrating Women’s day is kind of a cliché …I believe in Equality, hence having a specific day to celebrate women is a bit of a paradox…but yet when I see the struggle women go through to prove themselves every day…in the workplace, at home, as a daughter, as a mother, as a wife, as house wife as working women…a continuous struggle to prove that we deserve equal treatment, an omnipresent struggle to break or circumvent glass ceilings in every conceivable field…to break taboos, to reshape society’s definition of what a women should be…having a day dedicated to “us” perhaps make sense…(beyond the hashtags of consumerism of course)… Today apart from wishing my fellow women…I wished Men too…those who I know, truly uphold the idea of equality…who have respected me and treated me as equals…yes I wished Men…Happy Women’s Day!”

Anasua Mitra, Marketing Leader, Wienerberger India

“Being a women entrepreneur trying to introduce new tech in the HR industry, I would suggest everyone to not get bogged down by the jargons your tech team use.
