  • Woman entrepreneurship in india

    1. 1. BVIMR, New Delhi Women Entrepreneurship in India: Some Aspects By: Dr. Sanjay Manocha 1
    2. 2. BVIMR, New Delhi 2 •Women owned businesses are highly increasing in the economies of almost all countries. •The hidden entrepreneurial potentials of women have gradually been changing with the growing sensitivity to the role and economic status in the society. •Skill, knowledge and adaptability in business are the main reasons for women to emerge into business ventures. • ‘Women Entrepreneur’ is a person who accepts challenging role to meet her personal needs and become economically independent. •A strong desire to do something positive is an inbuilt quality of entrepreneurial women, who is capable of contributing values in both family and social life. •With the advent of media, women are aware of their own traits, rights and also the work situations.
    3. 3. BVIMR, New Delhi 3 •The glass ceilings are shattered and women are found indulged in every line of business from pappad to power cables. •The challenges and opportunities provided to the women of digital era are growing rapidly that the job seekers are turning into job creators. •They are flourishing as designers, interior decorators, exporters, publishers, garment manufacturers and still exploring new avenues of economic participation. •In India, although women constitute the majority of the total population, the entrepreneurial world is still a male dominated one. •Women in advanced nations are recognized and are more prominent in the business world.
    4. 4. BVIMR, New Delhi 4 But the Indian women entrepreneurs are facing some major constraints like – a) Lack of confidence – In general, women lack confidence in their strength and competence. The family members and the society are reluctant to stand beside their entrepreneurial growth. To a certain extent, this situation is changing among Indian women and yet to face a tremendous change to increase the rate of growth in entrepreneurship. b) Socio-cultural barriers – Women’s family and personal obligations are sometimes a great barrier for succeeding in business career. Only few women are able to manage both home and business efficiently, devoting enough time to perform all their responsibilities in priority.
    5. 5. BVIMR, New Delhi 5 c) Market-oriented risks – Stiff competition in the market and lack of mobility of women make the dependence of women entrepreneurs on middleman indispensable. Many business women find it difficult to capture the market and make their products popular. They are not fully aware of the changing market conditions and hence can effectively utilize the services of media and internet. d) Motivational factors – Self motivation can be realized through a mind set for a successful business, attitude to take up risk and behavior towards the business society by shouldering the social responsibilities. Other factors are family support, Government policies, financial assistance from public and private institutions and also the environment suitable for women to establish business units.
    6. 6. BVIMR, New Delhi 6 e) Knowledge in Business Administration – Women must be educated and trained constantly to acquire the skills and knowledge in all the functional areas of business management. This can facilitate women to excel in decision making process and develop a good business network. f) Awareness about the financial assistance – Various institutions in the financial sector extend their maximum support in the form of incentives, loans, schemes etc. Even then every woman entrepreneur may not be aware of all the assistance provided by the institutions. So the sincere efforts taken towards women entrepreneurs may not reach the entrepreneurs in rural and backward areas.
    7. 7. BVIMR, New Delhi 7 g) Exposed to the training programs – Training programs and workshops for every type of entrepreneur is available through the social and welfare associations, based on duration, skill and the purpose of the training program. Such programs are really useful to new, rural and young entrepreneurs who want to set up a small and medium scale unit on their own. h) Identifying the available resources – Women are hesitant to find out the access to cater their needs in the financial and marketing areas. In spite of the mushrooming growth of associations, institutions, and the schemes from the government side, women are not enterprising and dynamic to optimize the resources in the form of reserves, assets mankind or business volunteers.
    8. 8. BVIMR, New Delhi 8 • Highly educated, technically sound and professionally qualified women should be encouraged for managing their own business, rather than dependent on wage employment outlets. • The unexplored talents of young women can be identified, trained and used for various types of industries to increase the productivity in the industrial sector. • A desirable environment is necessary for every woman to inculcate entrepreneurial values and involve greatly in business dealings.
    9. 9. BVIMR, New Delhi Why do Women Take-up Employment? • Push Factors – Death of bread winner – Sudden fall in family income – Permanent inadequacy in income of the family • Pull Factors – Women’s desire to evaluate their talent – To utilize their free time or education – Need and perception of Women’s Liberation, Equity etc. – To gain recognition, importance and social status. – To get economic independence 9
