20% Of Businesses In India Are Women-Owned. How Is Digitization Helping Them Grow?

Today, over 12,000 women in business are a part of Women #BreakingBarriers. Since its inception in 2015, the unique summit for women is much-awaited in 9 cities across India.

The Zinnov-Nasscom India report reveals that in a country that witnesses the birth of almost 25,000 start-ups in a decade, women own over 20% of businesses in India. Digital acceleration has played a significant role in the rise of women-led micro, small and medium enterprises in the country.

Amidst the pandemic, many women-led businesses strengthened their online presence, leveraging the power of networking and collaboration. Doing so has enabled women to overcome challenges and contribute to the global economy.

As we observe this year’s International Women’s Day theme DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality, we look at how digitization has helped women spread their business initiative to a larger audience. Women’s Web which is a part of Vocallea Networks is on a mission to enable 1 Million women at work by connecting them to resources for business and also in corporate.

Women #BreakingBarriers 2023

This year, Women’s Web brings together eminent entrepreneurs to discuss how we break digital barriers and enable more women to be part of innovation. Women #BreakingBarriers 2023 in Phase 1 will host entrepreneurs in Bangalore (22nd April), Mumbai (29th April), and Gurugram (6th May) and Phase 2 will be coming to Panjim, Coimbatore, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Jaipur.

The theme this year is DigitALL – Coming Together to Innovate! Where entrepreneurs will discuss everything digital – from effective online networking to pitching it right.

#BreakingBarriers 2023 will give aspiring and experienced women in business the opportunity to listen to incredible speakers in an environment that encourages networking and future collaboration among participants. The event is in partnership with 91Springboard, Google Developers, Radio City, Encubay, Artisante, and Xpresso by Daily Hunt.

The past editions have successfully helped participants collaborate in mutually beneficial ways. Peer mentoring and employment in full-time roles and as vendors have been notable.
