Boss Daughter

bossdaughter

Women entrepreneurs worldwide are carving out a niche for themselves in unconventional businesses.  Take Aakanksha Bhargava.  She joined her father’s logistics business in 2007, and for the longest time, subordinates did not take her seriously.  Fast forward to 2017 and she is the undisputed boss.  Yes, the boss daughter, but still the boss, and over the last decade, she has helped grow the business exponentially.

“I worked hard to change the perception of the people as well as the fortunes of the company,” she said. Bhargava asserted there are no differences between a woman and a man when it comes to business.

And then there’s the founders of cow-based sustainable living company A2 Naturals, run by Shivali and Radhika Miglani and their mom.

“Extensive R&D into merging the traditional with the modern led to developing a range of cow-based, daily-use products,” said Radhika, adding that the quirkiness of her business is often frowned upon.

Pointers from the article:

  • The success of a woman lies in supporting other women
  • A mom can be the strongest pillar of support.
  • Take the plunge [business ownership] and you will see the miracles.
  • The hurdles [to starting a business] are just in the mind.
  • Always do what you feel you need to do.
  • There are no differences between a man and a woman when it comes to business.
  • There is nothing a woman can’t do.  Absolutely, it’s an open secret!
  • Being a woman [ global] entrepreneur makes me feel more in control of my life.
  • In our office, the smartest women surround me.

Ideal Country for Women Starting a Business?

According to “India is Great For Women Entrepreneurs, Bad For Women.  How Is This Possible?,” Amit Midha, Dell’s Chairman For Global Emerging Markets says:

“We have found the ideal country for a woman starting a business in 2012 could well be India.”

How can this be?

An analysis of the countries where women are rising the fastest shows India as “South Asia’s bright spot for female entrepreneurs” and Indian business hub Silicon India highlights women entrepreneurs who have been successful in India: “10 Most Powerful Indian women entrepreneurs.”

Yet a poll conducted by Thomas Reuters TrustLaw shows that India is the worst G20 country (refer to right chart) to be a woman.  There seems to be a big disconnect here.

Read the entire article here.

WEGG has a lot of women readers from India.  Do you agree or disagree?  What’s the reason for the disconnect?  We welcome hearing from you.
