Indian Women: Natural Potential to be an Entrepreneur 
*
 
 Introduction:
 
It is general belief in our society that role of women is restricted in four walls of home or you can saywomen are involved in mainly household activities like cooking and reading. Economy of any countrycan't boom without contributing women. The growing industrialization, urbanization and sociallegislation and with the spread of education and awareness women have shifted from kitchen to higherlevel of professional activities. Today's women are taking more and more professional and technicaldegrees to cope up with market need.The position of women and their status is any society is an index of its civilization. Women are to beconsidered as equal partner in the process of development. But, because of centuries of exploitationand subjugation Indian women have remained at the receiving end. Women in India have beenneglected lot. They have not been actively involved in the mainstream of development even throughthey represent equal proportion of the population and labor force. As technology speeds up liveswomen are as emerging economic force which can not be neglected by policy maker. The world'smodern democratic economy depends on the participation of both sexes.Today women is advance market economies own more then 25% of all businesses & women owned business in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America are growing rapidly. Women as anindependent target group account for 495.74 million and represent 48.5% of the country's populationas per the 2001 census. No country can achieve its potential without adequately investing in anddeveloping the capabilities of women. In the interest of long-term development it is necessary tofacilitate their empowerment.In many developing countries including India women have much less access to education, jobs, andincome then men. Ever after five and half decade of planned development Indian women have notachieved expected success in the mainstream of life. Our country will be unable to have a competitiveedge over others until and unless the status and role of women is improved. In Indian context,National level Standing Committee on Women Entrepreneur constituted by the Ministry of IndustriesThe Govt. of India(1984) notes women entrepreneur as "An enterprise owned and controlled bywomen having a minimum financial interest of 51% of the capital and giving at least 51%of employment generated in the enterprise to women. " However, the validity of such a definition hadbeen challenged at every step particularly in 8th National Convention of Women Entrepreneurs held in1990. Finally the schemes that were offered condescend to drop the second requirement but the firstis applicable till today. The generally accepted definition includes women who create something new,organize production and undertake risk and handle economic uncertainties (Anuradha, 1988) to adjusttheir personality needs, family life, social life and economic independence (Singh and Gupta, 1985).Further they may not necessarily be the independent organizer\manager (Singh et.al., 1986)
 
According to Kamala Singh," A women entrepreneur is a confident, innovative and creative womancapable of achieving economic independence individually or in collaboration generates employmentopportunities for others through initiating establishing and running an enterprise by keeping pace withher personal, family and social life.According to Medha Dubhanshi Vinze, a women entrepreneur is a person who is an enterprisingindividual with an eye for opportunities and an uncanny vision, Commercial acumen, with tremendousperseverance and above all a person who is willing to take risk with the unknown because of theadventures spirit she possesses.Thus a women entrepreneur is one who starts business and manages it independently and tactfullytakes all the risks, faces the challenges boldly with an iron will to succeed.Entrepreneurship before it was considered as a male dominated activity but time has changed thesituation and brought women as today's most memorable and inspirational entrepreneur. Today youcan see a women in every where whether it is super market or departmental store. Even in rural areain STD PCO shop also. We can states the example of Shanaj Hussain , Kiran majumdar who startedtheir business at small level now they have reached a great height. It is a good sign for country thatIndian women are coming out from their home and contributing in national economy because a littlebeginning can show great results. Women have all the traits that are required to run an enterprise butthere is only need to identify them and work on that direction. Being a woman is not a weakness forthem it is strength or a god given advantage for them.
