Seven Indians in 50 top women-led North American firms
Washington: Indian origin women lead seven of the 50 fastest-growing women-owned or women-led companies in North America, according to the non-profit group the Women Presidents' Organization (WPO) and American Express OPEN.

In the U.S. alone there are an estimated 8.1 million women-owned businesses that contribute $1.3 trillion to the national economy and employ 7.7 million people, U.S. business magazine Forbes noted citing the list.

The companies that made the top 50 generated an astounding $4.1 billion in combined revenues last year.

Leading the Indian contingent is Himanshu Bhatia of Rose International, Montana, Contingent Workforce Services, in the third place.

Ranjini Poddar of Artech Information Systems, New Jersey, IT Consulting in the seventh place comes next followed by Rachna Agarwal of Expedien, Texas, Business Intelligence in the 12th place.

Gloria Rajkumar (16) of SIMAC Canada, Ontario, Coordinate Independent Medical Assessments, Kiran Gill (21) of PARS Environmental, New Jersey, Environmental consulting firm and Anjali "Ann" Ramakumaran (26) of Ampcus, Virginia, Consulting services take the next three places.

Sonu Ratra of Akraya, California, IT and Marketing staffing in the 37th place brings up the rear.

Shelly Sun led the fastest-growing company on the list, BrightStar Care, a home healthcare and medical staffing company based in Illinois, which quadrupled its revenue in just two years to $100 million

To qualify for the list, companies were required to be privately held, woman-owned or women-led, and located in the U.S. or Canada. They were ranked according to a sales growth formula that combines percentage and absolute growth.

1: This clearly shows USA is a etter market than India and only the best can go there. India even after hundred years will keep writing similar stories rather than becoming a country and system like USA. Keep up the writing so that people will atleast know that there is a better life for human out there. Get out of India and live. Be in India and survive. Only goondas live in India

I agree with Dennis - while Indians are proud of who is doing what outside of India, nothing other than the greeting smell of sewer permeates from those who land in Bombay - setting the tone of a pathetic ineptitude system and mentality which subjugates greatness with servitude. Other than cheap talk, who is fixing the goondas?

not only you sound negative, you're generalizing the rest of the Indians living in India...I live in the States but I disagree with your assessment that ppl in India are just surviving... think they are thriving on many opportunities..

Well, I don’t think anyone is being negative, that is the truth, there still is a population above 50% moving backwards, we still have some villages that have not even seen how a light bulb turns on in their homes. I have been in HR for several years, and there are thousands of people who have various degrees like literature, Engg. etc, unable to get a job, Campus interviews have 2000 candidates lined up, for 100 or less posts. Definitely only the best get through, the rest are only "surviving". And yet only about 10% of those selected actually got what they aimed for, the rest are just happy they got "something". If you do some calculation, notice the numbers are mindboggling, and people "thriving" is really a very very very very small number if you consider ratio. I speak this because I have statistics and numbers at hand, and those have been compared against standards, yet the numbers I have are "above" average. So the numbers "thriving" is even smaller. And yes from the ones who are the best, 90% of them are looking for a job abroad in most cases US, and give me one reason why they won't get it, "they are the best" looking for "better" prospects.
