Women usually have to juggle more between work and home responsibilities including taking care of children. Full time job is feasible for some women but not for many women who prefer doing part time job or manage a business with flexible working hours. Statistics indicate that only about 15% of businesses in India are run by Women.
Our vision is to actively contribute to the growth of women entrepreneurs from 15 % to 50 % in India and hopefully across the world with aid of technology!
