What drives women entrepreneurs in India? Please visit the Women's Web Women & Entrepreneurship in India survey to answer that and other questions
Did you read this recent post on Forbes, Entrepreneurship is the new women’s movement? It does appear that way. Even in India, everyone knows someone who’s quitting her job and starting a business – everyone has a friend, a sister, a daughter who is turning entrepreneur.
Which is why, we’re so curious about this phenomenon. What is driving large numbers of women to start their own businesses? How big do women want their businesses to grow? What challenges are they facing? What help do they draw upon?
These and other questions are what we seek to answer via the Women’s Web Women & Entrepreneurship 2012 Survey. If you are a woman running a business in India, please do take the survey and also share it with all the other female entrepreneurs you know.
If you’re not an entrepreneur (or not a woman), you could still help us by passing on the survey link (http://goo.gl/fNdmE) to others. The data is going to be freely shared on the site, so it will be a great resource for entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs in the making, mentors, advisors, and anyone who writes about entrepreneurship or works with entrepreneurs in some way.
Other ways in which you could spread the word:
– Share it on your FB or Twitter or LinkedIN or other such channels
– Blog about it or place a link on your blog so your readers can take the survey too
We hope to have a good number of people taking the survey so we have robust results, of relevance in the Indian context – do help us out in any way you can! Once again, here is the link: Women & Entrepreneurship in India.

Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.
Having studied at NIFT, Gunpreet Kaur Mann sent her portfolio out to several designers. Her first gig was as an assistant stylist with Manoshi and Rushi, who also happen to be a designer duo. She worked on an ad film starring Saif Ali Khan and eventually landed a full time job with designer Vikram Phadnis. Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
