Why Ahmedabad doesn't have More Women Entrepreneurs?
Posted on 12 Jul, 2018
There are ample of businesses managed by women - but how many are started and nurtured by women from scratch!
The answer could be, "Yes, of course!" but then where are they? We are not going into the definition of entrepreneur but the context here is to understand where do we see them. Is there enough for them to pursue an organized self-employment (not the once in a while freelancing), a small traditional business or a startup which involves experimentation and risk as well initial funds.
Studies have shown women start ventures at 1.5x from the average rate and often with a very less funds than the male founders.
What are those some of the factors accounting for the discouraged population of buddying women entrepreneurs in Ahmedabad?
Taking over family business
Joining Husband's business to manage a function
Lack of atmosphere to pursue a business idea
Lack of initial funds and decision power
Lack of isolated workspace
These are just some of the reasons but as far as Uncubate is concerned - we always had a vision to solve some of these external problems. At Uncubate - we are coming up with a special rates for self-employed women and startups as well as we are providing support to early stage startups from idea to early revenue stages.
Some of the major reasons why women should adopt the coworking spaces:
An Independent and Isolated Workspace
Despite of changing dynamics of the families and couples - women are rather more burdened with dealing with the independence and their traditional responsibilities. Due to their family related responsibilities, they are not able to give an isolated or focused time to their work or ideas. It always takes a back seat and hardly get materialized in full-time business. Having an office to go to - will make a himalayan difference to their work.
Coworking is the best way to go about it. Having your own desk, own space - can just change the way feel confident about yourself. If you are a startup founder and have a small team - there cannot be a better way to define your professional life and routine.
Interaction beyond Walls
Meeting new people is a booster for every person be it professional or personal. Discussing new ideas, collaborating over work or just making new work friends - it can only add value to your shabby home-bound routine. Number of young girls are choosing to be their own bosses and pursuing freelancing or consulting assignment. Why not do it professionally and expand your work through interacting with new people.
Find Key Team Members
No good professional connections will fall in your lap by themselves. You need to be out there in the market. Even if there could be a mentor who would help you just because you are having a great idea and business proposition.
