Female entrepreneurship is vital for our future. Collectively we can make a change by closing the gap between men and women in the workforce.
Entrepreneurs are those adventurous, daredevils who drive deep into the pressing problems of society and try to find solutions to them, not by leaving the responsibilities in the reins of the government or business, but by trying to change systems as a whole and persuading societies to take new initiatives
India being a growing economy is a hotspot for young entrepreneurs. With a large population of more than 130 crores, businesses all over the world see it as a potential destination for establishing a start-up. For years, males dominated the business industry, leaving less or no room for females. But the trend has changed now. More and more women are jumping into the business and many have successfully established globally renowned brands. Creating job opportunities for a large number of people, the women have braved the societal pressures and stereotypes to come up with the solutions that are far more reliable and innovative.
Recent years, Maharashtra has witnessed an increase in women-owned businesses in fields such as household Industry, fashion, farming, IT, manufacturing, oil, and more. The development has broken the gender stereotype where women are depicted as weaker and incapable.
These bold and fearlessly ambitious entrepreneurs are shaping the future of Maharashtra, serving as mentors to millions of women and youths.

Dr. Rita said, “When I used to hear that a person died or suffered from complications due to an accident or heart attack due to a lack of system, I used to get upset. Being a medical doctor, I understand the impact of the right help and ad-hoc help. Emergency cases like heart attack, stroke, accident needs medical help in Golden Hour.

Best practices are documented and implemented in various parts of the country.
Let’s join hands and promote the concept of Right Help, Early Help to achieve Mission Zero Death.
Dr. Rita feels instead of discussing or alleging that the system is not improving, it is essential that we take action in a systematic, scientific, and planned manner to address any social cause. Understand the problem, do detailed research about policy, understand ground-level challenges, make an action plan, work on 360 degrees to address that problem. Do pilot projects, do impact analysis from time to time, improvise, document best practices, and have patience. Things do improve, and it is key to success. A non-profit organization should also work as a professional self-sustaining organization. Professional approach and action speak more than words, which is the key in saving lives and improving the system for the benefit of humans and a country.
