Be it tech, commerce, politics, finance, entertainment, or any industry you can possibly think of, women are at the forefront. The concept of ‘it’s a man’s world’ seems alien in 2022, and women are taking charge in the most important scenarios across the globe. When we talk about business, the recently-released Shark Tank India put many women entrepreneurs in the limelight and showcased their remarkable ideas.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, it’s that time of the year again when we celebrate, congratulate, and applaud the women in our lives and the ways in which they impact society. Let’s take a look at some women entrepreneurs and their inspirational journeys.
