Women Entrepreneurship in India has hit a tipping point

The Chairperson of kalorex enlightened us with her views as a woman entrepreneur, sharing her experiences of the same.

What does it take for a woman to be an entrepreneur?

As you already know women entrepreneurs are a minority. It’s a worldwide phenomenon. There are statistics to say that about 3% of boardroom permissions go to women. And at any point in time at an equal fitting, if a man and a woman are working, for some reason men are given more prominence. It could very well be that men have been professionals for many years before us. But women are yet to catch up in numbers, positions, in every field. So, I think, being a woman, one has to work twice as much to prove one’s medal. So, this is what it really takes to be a woman entrepreneur.

Would you like to provide few tips for women who want to enter the strictly managed education sector?

Yes. It has to be persistence. Because there is no greater attribute an entrepreneur has than gut. And most of the entrepreneurs live by the same. I am not by any ways undermining market research or market analysis because you need to rely on these tools to go into a market. If you have an idea, you got to test that idea. You have to see if the market is ready for the idea. But at the end of the day, when you are looking at a report, how you read and feel about the report, all of that makes for an entrepreneur.

So, an entrepreneur always has to be in touch with herself/himself. So, you have an idea, a workable idea that there is no bigger thing than persistence. Because, you are bound to fall, to have taken the wrong decision, that time you have to stand alone and survive.

Finally, I would like to conclude by saying that,” The first and most important step is to believe in yourself and never give up, no matter what. Learning continuously and building a body of values and ethics by following the less trodden path is also essential. Don’t take shortcuts, they end too soon. And finally, remember this: it’s never too late to become an entrepreneur!”
