Bangalore: Corporate world has its own culture and system, and for a woman to achieve success or to climb the corporate ladder is not impossible but rather difficult. India has always been rich in every field - art, science, media and corporate and it has given birth to some of the most extra ordinary women ‘go getters’ especially in commerce.
Women are always been deprived of few things in our society but certainly there are many women entrepreneurs, being extremely successful and removing the ‘we can’t do’ label. These ladies play their roles perfect and throws out a smile that can teach all of us an encouraging and a confident lesson.

2: Most of these are not entrepreneurs. With due respect to the outstanding women who are featured ehre, they are executives. Has SiliconIndia lost the flair in english? or is it because "Entrepreneur" is a french word?

3: The list seems incomplete without Chanda Kochchar who heads the ICICI BANK and has been ranked as the most powerful woman in business.

4: The word entrepreneur is being misused. An entrepreneur is a person who manages a business with considerable risk and initiative. These people are typically managers. They have no ownership (besides stock) and are not owner managers...

Completely agree with Kumar. These women are managers of already established company. Some one give us a list of ladies starting and successfully going on with their own companies
