India Leadership Conclave to debate on Digital India Transformation – Empowering Digital Women Leaders in India

While e-commerce is still young in India, it has seen a number of startups evolving into big companies in a short period of time. Although no single person or a company has emerged as a single leader, a number of individuals together have become the face of this sector in this country. Women entrepreneurs are stepping up to show their skill and vision and prove that they have the ability to take their budding ventures to scaling heights. Let’s have a look at some of the women who are making a difference in this growing e-commerce ecosystem.

The e-commerce industry in the country is likely to be worth USD 38 billion by 2016, a 67 per cent jump over the USD 23 billion revenues for 2015, as per industry body Assocham. “India’s e-commerce market was worth about USD 3.8 billion in 2009, it went up to USD 17 billion in 2014 and to USD 23 billion in 2015 and is expected to touch whopping USD 38 billion mark by 2016

Abstract: From last so many years, Women entrepreneurs are inspiring and motivating entrepreneurs. Women in today’s era are preferred to be entrepreneurs instead of doing household work. Due to economic globalization, women entrepreneurs are speedily getting popularity as well as huge importance in India. Women have proved that they can enter in each and every field. Women entrepreneurs are emerging as smart and dynamic entrepreneur. They have proved to be on par with their Men counterparts in business acumen. The performance of successful women entrepreneur working in socio economic sector is outstanding. Today economy is changing and everybody is moving to e-commerce. The e-commerce sector has outstanding growth in 2014 .The growth of E-commerce helps the women entrepreneur to generate new ideas and work from home. There is tremendous growth of women entrepreneurs in e-commerce sector like Anisha Singh founder and CEO OF mydala, Shivani and Tanvi owners, fabally. The present study reveals the successful women entrepreneur in E-commerce sector and challenges faced by women entrepreneurs in ecommerce sector. Keywords: E-Commerce, Women Entrepreneur, Entrepreneurship, Success, Business. I. Introduction The educated women would never like to confine themselves within the boundaries of their house. They want equal rights, respect, and value from their male counterparts. Indian women, however, still have a long way to go in order to achieve better position and equal rights because Indian society have deep-rooted traditions with male dominated sociological set up. Since, women are thought to be weaker sex, therefore, they are made to rely on men either inside of a family or outside, during their whole life. In Indian culture, men treat them as subordinates and they are only supposed to execute their decisions, in a typical family structure. Although, women represent half of the brainpower available on earth, even then, they remain the most underutilized and suppressed resource of the world. Despite all such social problems, India is having a plethora of women’s success stories. A change in Indian society’s social fabric has increased women’s aspirations for better lifestyle and educational status. They have managed to succeed in such tough and competitive patriarchal society with their perseverance, hard work and diligence. Women’s persuasiveness, ability of learning quickly, open and free style of problem solving, ability to encourage people, ability to take chances, know the ways of winning and losing gracefully are the real strengths of women entrepreneurs in India. There are nearly a thousand definitions in literature describing entrepreneurship and business processes. The very earliest definitions of entrepreneurship that can be dated back to the eighteenth century deem it to be an economic term depicting it to be a process of taking the risk of purchasing goods at certain prices where as selling them at uncertain prices. In due course of time, the term broadened and included the theory of bringing the factors of production together. Such a definition led many people to question whether there lay any exclusive entrepreneurial function or it was simply a management form. Most recently, innovation concept was added to entrepreneurship definition which again blossomed into numerous categories like process innovation, factor innovation, organizational innovation and market innovation. Then again, the latest definition views it as creation of enterprises and the founder is termed as an entrepreneur. Considerable efforts have been made in trying to comprehend the sociological and psychological underpinnings of entrepreneurship. According to some studies, majority of entrepreneurs have some common characteristics that include need for achievement, risk taking propensity, ostensible locus of control and orientation towards intuitive reasoning. Additionally, many have also commented upon minority group membership, adolescent economic experiences and childhood deprivation. So we now have the definitions of entrepreneurship which seems to be easily understandable. However, it’s the detailed study of literature as well the actual examples which tend to make the concept of entrepreneurship more difficult. Considering the risk bearing factor which is supposed to be an essential element of entrepreneurial personas, a majority of them have surpassed by avoiding risks. Neither is creativity a prerequisite for successful entrepreneurship. Most of them have efficaciously copied the idea of others and have somehow improved on the idea to make it an innovation that was essential for that product’s success. The Rise of Indian Women Entrepreneur in E-commerce DOI: 10.9790/487X-171013640 www.iosrjournals.org 37 | Page II. Ecommerce Ecommerce industry is on upturn. E-commerce (often spelled “e-commerce”) is the wave of the future. E-Commerce or electronic commerce, deals with the buying and selling of goods and services, or the transmitting of funds or data, over an electronic platform, mainly the internet.

Due to ultimate growth of e sector investor are coming in front for funding. ECommerce is increasingly attracting customers from Tier 2 and 3 cities, where people have limited access to brands but have high aspirations. According to E-Commerce companies, these cities have seen a 30% to 50% rise in transactions.

The sector is expected to be in the range of 22 billion USD in 2015. III. Women Entrepreneurship In The Changing World Of Ecommerce A large number of women sellers today are opting for e-tail sites to sell across a diverse range of sectors such as health care, home furnishing, jewellery, handicrafts and fashion apparel, among others. Minimum investments, ease of working from home, global reach and the empowerment that comes in from financial independence are the primary reasons for the emergence of online marketplace as the favorable platform for women entrepreneurs Women in business are a recent phenomenon in India. Women entrepreneurs are engaged in business due to push and pull factors which encourage them to have an independent occupation and stand on their own legs.

While e-commerce is still young in India, it has seen a number of startups evolving into big companies in a short period of time. Although no single person or a company has emerged as a single leader, a number of individuals together have become the face of this sector in this country. Women entrepreneurs are stepping up to show their skill and vision and prove that they have the ability to take their budding ventures to scaling heights. Let’s have a look at some of the women who are making a difference in this growing e-commerce ecosystem. The vast majority of women-owned businesses are micro-enterprises or SMEs owned by middle class women with around 75% of the businesses earning less than Rs 10 lakh in the last financial year and having less than five employees. One common motivation that drives all these women is the prospect of creative satisfaction and the feeling of financial independence. India is headed towards an Internet economy worth $200 billion by 2020 that will contribute to five percent of the GDP. The infiltration of Internet and smartphones into smaller towns and rural areas is a major contributing factor to this. The report states that the number of Internet users in rural areas will touch 210 million by 2018, pushing India’s Internet user base to over 500 million.

V. Problems Face By Women Entrepreneurs In E-Commerce Industry With time the demand and popularity of ecommerce business is attaining all new heights in the country. There are many new successful women entrepreneurs coming up in the market proving their mettle. In the past few years several E-commerce businesses came up in the market and it is something that is grabbing the attention of many. There are lots of problems and obstacles coming their way, but quite successful enough to overcome each one of those. Successful entrepreneurs are found marching ahead no matter what the situation, dedicatedly towards their goal. Though this particular sector is gaining all attention but there are some really big challenges that every entrepreneur need to face. Here are top five challenges that every women entrepreneur needs to overcome: 1. Finding a proper niche 2. Customer acquisition 3. Good supply chain and reliable logistics 4. Raising sufficient amount of funds 5. Good and effective customer service Ecommerce business requires necessary amount of attention from customers and in order to get that every firm needs to invest huge amount on marketing or other promotional activities. There is huge need of fund and on a constant basis, unless there are reliable investors or fund raising processes it is tough enough for entrepreneurs to run the business successfully. What’s more important for ecommerce business entrepreneur is to maintain the good reputation through constant good services. There are times when goods delivered are not satisfactory. This kind of instances tends to hurt the reputation of ecommerce business firms. Customer satisfaction is utmost priority in this business, all business entrepreneurs’ needs to ensure that. In short it is team effort that needs proper dedication to meet the need of every customer. As an entrepreneur you need to constantly manage each one of those aspects properly and help the business grow with time. Problems face by women entrepreneurs in ECommerce industry With time ecommerce industry in this country is attaining all new heights and thanks to all entrepreneurs for coming up with unique new ideas and concepts. There are quite a few women entrepreneurs making their mark in the industry, thanks to their ecommerce business ideas. Transacting over internet is something that is quite a good idea and it is considered something really innovative. However there are numerous problems too faced by every entrepreneur or company. It is important to overcome all such challenges to emerge as reputed brand in the market. Finding suitable Niche is quite an important task that every ecommerce entrepreneur needs to face. Many entrepreneurs believe ecommerce business is all about Niche people all willing to transact over internet for any of their desired product. Customer acquisition is another important challenge that every ecommerce business need to face. This is one business that requires heavy investment on marketing as well as advertising to lure customers. According to market experts this is one big challenge that most startup companies need to face. Reliable logistics as well as supply chain is another important aspect for ecommerce business. Failure in this particular area means detrimental damage to future reputation of the company. The business is all about trust and if it gets hurt can be terribly harming the reputation of the company. Every ecommerce entrepreneur faces lot of trouble in raising sufficient fund for the business. Unless there is constant flow of fund it makes it really tough to run the business. For women entrepreneurs it is quite big challenge to keep arranging funds on a regular basis. Customer service is another important aspect that is often overlooked in Indian market.

With the help of E-commerce today, many women have become financial independent by selling product online. The Indian women have to perform two opposite roles in this developing economy where she has built career and to take care of household chores also so with help of ecommerce she can perform both the role excellently by working at home. With the help of ecommerce women are getting freedom from working from the comfort of their homes. A large numbers of women sellers are selling products online though websites such as health care, home furnishing, jewellery handicrafts, fashion apparel. The main reason for choosing online market place is minimum investment, ease of working from home, global reach.
