31 Inspiring business stories of Indian women entrepreneurs, you need to read before 2020!

As twenty nineteen ends, WOI is grateful for the year as we feel proud to have worked with 31 inspiring Indian women entrepreneurs from various genres.

In India, as per recent researches, surveys, studies and our own experience on working closely with women entrepreneurs, it is sure that our nation has a large number of women with entrepreneurial dreams to ‘do something of their own’!

Beyond educational, personal, financial, societal and other constraints a lot of Indian women have gone beyond their limitations to set up a place for themselves in the entrepreneurial world. Women in India have to face a lot of struggle to set up a space for themselves in the entrepreneurial world.

Though the stories, educational qualifications, family and financial backgrounds of each woman entrepreneur may vary, one thing all of them have in common is their grit to be what they are today!

As we look back into 2019, WOI finds immense pleasure to have grown up into a community to Inspire, motivate and support women with entrepreneurial dreams. And, we are glad to have worked with the following 31 inspiring women entrepreneurs this 2019!
