The paper focuses on women entrepreneur of India. There was a time when woman entrepreneurs in India used to be in Informal sector usually because of lack of capital, labour and market know-how and social cultural norms of India. But today women are present across sectors as varied as technology, clinical research and in retail, still poised to burst a common myth that women-led businesses do not grow beyond a certain scale. Even we look at the developed countries we see that women are actively participative in the business and trade activities, including agriculture, without any social or other restrictions. But in India, there are still many social and cultural restrictions on women. Despite all the social hurdles in India, many women have become successful in their works. The urban markets are buzzing with many women entrepreneurs who have won market space. Many women entrepreneurs are stepping up to show they have the appetite, skills and vision to take a shot at scaling their young ventures. This paper focuses on women entrepreneurship in India and it also talks about the status of women entrepreneurs, nature of women entrepreneurship, and the problems faced by them. The growth rate of women’s participation in economic activities is much lower than the expected rate. Hence, women participation in entrepreneurial activities is less than the requirement of the fast growth of India.
