Amit Tyagi, Ranchay Bhateja, Mani Tyagi


India is definitely the hub of entrepreneurs worldwide, women are considered to be as equal parameters in development but due to exploitation and subjugation, Indian women have remained at receiving end. Women in India have been neglected a lot; they are not involved in the mainstream of development even though they represent a proportion of population and labor force. Women entrepreneurs are the persons who accept challenges to meet the personal requirements and become economically independent. Position of women and their status in the society is the measuring scale of civilization.Indian women business owners are changing the face of businesses of today, both factually and metaphorically. The energetic growth and spreading out of women-owned businesses is one of the significant trends of the past decade, and all indication is that it will persist unabated. For more than a decade, the number of women-owned businesses has grown at one-and-a-half to two times the rate of all businesses. Even more important, the expansion in revenues and employment has far exceeded the intensification in numbers.This paper throws light on women entrepreneur, who manages small to medium size enterprises. It also examines the problems faced by women in setting and prolongation of their businesses and conflicts faced by them. It also overviews the reasons for starting the business and success they achieved and in the last it examines how the initial problems faced by them are similar with that of women of other countries.
