Womentrepreneurs tells inspiring stories of women entrepreneurs in India.

[The author] deserves credit for producing this inspirational work at a time when the economic scenario as well as the sociocultural environment in India is set to support the efforts by young women who have the courage and determination to accomplish noble entrepreneurial work.’

Steering away from sympathy, the book presents realistic portraits of ten women entrepreneurs…the very diversity of stories chronicled here makes this book an interesting read.

Business Line, 7 March 2016

Dedicated to the passionately committed young girls whose life’s mission is to improve the quality of life in marginalized communities by overcoming socio-cultural challenges… Stories are written in simple words but these tell about the zeal of brave women in the right spirit.

The Tribune, 6 March 2016

Womentrepreneurs is a brilliant compilation of 10 simply written stories, each capturing a journey of a woman towards founding her own venture. The book tells inspiring stories of women entrepreneurs in India.... The book should be of immense interest to budding entrepreneurs as a source of experiential learning. Teachers of entrepreneurship can use the book as a great source for anecdotal evidence.
