Bangalore: “Never be ashamed! There’s some who will hold it against you, but they are not worth bothering with,” is a very famous quote by the popular Harry Potter novelist – J.K. Rowling.  This quote has a very strong and deep meaning on entrepreneurship but also reflects a bit of her personal life. However, the emphasis here is on entrepreneurship and J.K. Rowling has proved the world how successful a woman can be.



In the recent past, SiliconIndia has produced numerous articles and stories on women entrepreneurship. We have written articles on the 10 most powerful Indian women entrepreneurs, the reason why Indian women entrepreneurs are less compared to their male counterparts and so on. Now, it is time to read and know about these 4 Indian women entrepreneurs who shunned campus placements to nurture their startup dream.



Ridhi Agarwal
Coming from an Agarwal family, Ridhi proudly says "Entrepreneurship is a double edged sword. Letting go of a fixed salary at placements is tough, but being a Marwari, I feel entrepreneurship is in my blood." Ridhi Agarwal shunned campus selections as she is busy working on a startup idea, an online grocery store. This marks her second venture, while the first one was an online library which she started 2007 called ‘xelf.com’. She started this with her hard earned savings of 4 lakh. This venture was quite a successful one as it broke even in a year’s time.
