Leading business women in India are driving their business goals at a fast pace. How are Women #BreakingBarriers to disrupt the landscape of Indian entrepreneurship?

The Zinnov-Nasscom India Report 2022 showcased the dynamic evolution of women entrepreneurship in India. Despite facing several challenges, leading business women in India are breaking the glass ceiling to set a high professional bar.

The report cited earlier revealed that about 36% of unicorns and potential unicorns in the country have at least one female founder or co-founder. With the gears of digitization in momentum, women are accelerating innovation to reach business goals.

How are leading business women in India working towards their goals?

What is it that drives these women when they work toward building their empires? Women #BreakingBarriers 2023 brings you answers to the same. The Vocallea Networks Pvt. Ltd. initiative, awaited in 9 cities, covers Bangalore (22nd April 2023), Mumbai (29th April 2023), and Gurgaon (5th May 2023) in its first phase.

We connected with some of our speakers, eminent businesswomen across various fields, to understand how women, together, are disrupting Indian entrepreneurship.

Leveraging technology

Digitization has been a boon for entrepreneurs for several reasons. Women get to conquer large geographical landscapes from their homes while managing personal responsibilities.

In addition, online workshops and knowledge-sharing platforms have enabled women in business to learn from field experts across the globe. However, when we talk about leveraging technology, we also see entrepreneurs using it for the welfare of women.

Our speaker, Geetha Manjunath, founded Niramai Health Analytix, a platform that detects early-stage breast cancer using non-invasive tools. Join her at #BreakingBarriers Bangalore for a fireside chat where you can learn how she transitioned careers and scaled her MedTech business to create an impact across countries. Register here.

Mentoring and partnerships

Success stories often mention how it takes a tribe to elevate a business. Women uplift other women to help break the glass ceiling. Support networks, partnerships, and guidance through mentorship are stepping stones to a successful business.

Nayantara Kochhar, Director, Joven, our panellist at #BreakingBarriers 2023, shares, “The time has come for women to help one another, and the power of community harnesses when we come together at platforms like this. There is so much room for growth, innovation, and partnership.”

Join Nayantara and eminent entrepreneurs like Arshi Yasin, CEO & Co-Founder of The Bridge, Ruche Mittal, Founder of HEN, and many more, at a panel dedicated to Networking in a Digital Age.

Breaking stereotypes

Indian women own over 20% of Medium and Small Enterprises (MSMEs) today. Along with barriers, they are also breaking stereotypes that surround the capabilities of women in business.

Today, women are managing their professional and personal lives while acknowledging that it is alright not to be a superwoman. It is to all these women, Sudiptaa Paul Choudhury, Global Marketing Director at the Eddy Pump Corporation, and our panellist says:

“Have a dream, keep it alive, and work towards it no matter how many obstacles you face. Fail fast, and rise strong, so your learnings from failures make your dream come true.”

Breaking stereotypes is an ongoing process for women running businesses today. They do so with self-assurance, clarity of thought, and set goals. Join Executive Coaches Neelima Chakara and Vasundhara Shukla at the IAmRemarkable session by Google to learn how you, an established or aspiring businesswoman, can chart your career path further.

Since its inception in 2015, Women #BreakingBarriers has motivated several women to take the next big step in their careers. From transitioning in your career path to scaling your business, the Women’s Web’s initiative brings you networking and learning opportunities.
