3: 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?

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

5: 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...
