Empowering Women Entrepreneurs and Professionals
Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, CMD of Biocon says ‘It’s time we realize that gender diversity introduces a balance of views and opinions that allow for more informed decisions and greater business success’.
For women who wish to start their own business, Finance is the biggest constraint. This slows down their start-ups and impedes their growth process. Besides finance, there are various other constraints like acceptance and recognition of their talents, family compulsions, limited knowledge of finance and advanced management practices. But there is no reason why women should continue facing these constraints. Banks and other Govt. bodies have come out with several schemes tailor made for women entrepreneurs and professionals. Even the latest Companies Act 2013 has mandated the appointment of at least one woman director on the boards of certain companies.
