Challenges of Entrepreneurship to Women
Women entrepreneurs lack the knowledge of establishing and running a business and are unable to prioritise their business over their domestic workload.
Thus, Women Entrepreneurs are unable to give their best to their businesses.
For MAWE, the world would be a better place if women had equal opportunities for economic growth. MAWE thus works towards reducing the gender gap in the field of entrepreneurship and business.
What MAWE Offers
Access to Markets
Through Marketing Incubator and participation in Exhibitions and Trade Fairs

With other women entrepreneurs and SMEs to identify potential buyers and seek bilateral trade.
Madhya Pradesh Association of Women Entrepreneurs (MAWE) believes that a little above the bottom of the pyramid, lies a huge section of the educated but unemployed women, who lack the knowledge of establishing and running a business and are unable to prioritise their business over their domestic workload and family restrictions. Women get stuck at a certain size of a company due to lack of visibility, access to networks and role models. However, these women have the potential to pay a major role in the nation’s economy.
The economic growth of women or 50% of the workforce, leads to the financial growth of the family and has a multiplier effect on the economy. MAWE works towards the economic and intellectual empowerment of the woman and we believe that through the woman, the same will be reflected in her children and thus, in society. Moreover, we have observed that women entrepreneurs in traditional trade employ more women thus leading to the economic empowerment of low-income families as well.
I have seen myself evolve in my journey of an entrepreneur and have availed the benefits & faced the challenges of being a woman entrepreneur. Now, I wish to give back to society by guiding other women through my experience and helping create a better ecosystem for women entrepreneurs.
