Cashing in on the ‘Big Idea’

In the world of advertising, traditionally the focus has always been on – “big ideas”. And brands cashed in on their unique “big ideas”. Like brand Amul had the Amul girl, the Onida devil, Marlboro had the Marlboro man, Apple reminded us to “Think Different,” and there’s “open happiness” with Coca-Cola, while it was “Youngistaan” for Pepsi. Now, we are exposed

World Bank’s We-Fi initiative: Better Access to finance for Women Entrepreneurs in Africa & the Developing World

Fund raising is one of the biggest challenges for any entrepreneur. Being awoman entrepreneur from Africa, and too of colour, unfortunately just multiplies the challenges.  It has been estimated that only 30% of global registered entities are owned by women; and 70% of women entrepreneurs shut shop due to lack of funds. Not only funding, but lack of

Technology and Women’s Freedom

Even after 70 years of independence you can literally count on fingers the number of successful women across sectors. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw in business, Zia Mody in legal practice, Shikha Sharma, Chanda Kocchar in banking, Vinitha Narayanan in technology, Kiran Bedi in services and maybe some more.

5 things to NEVER say to a Woman Entrepreneur

“Great! Now you can take it easy”

NOT. We all know that starting off one’s own venture is nothing easy. If anything, it means double the time, double the work, and double the pressure to perform. Of course, it’s also much more rewarding (personally and maybe financially) once it kicks off, but it’s NEVER “easy”.

“Aah! Nice. Making time to plan a family?”

HELL NO. The two are completely unrelated, and may or may not coincide, if at all. Ever

Women Entrepreneurship – The Answer to Economic Progress

A recent report from the World Bank cites a worrying statistic of a falling rate of Female Labour Force Participation (FLFP), ranking India 121 out of 131 nations, followed only by Pakistan in South Asia. Aptly titled “Precarious Drop”, the report notes a significant drop in women’s participation in the workforce from 42.7% in 2004-05 to 31.2% in 2011-12. What this translates to, is about 19.6 million women and girls having dropped out of the workforce
