‘Woman Power in Entrepreneurship’ on display at Jaipuria Noida
One of the most interesting discussions held recently at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida was on ‘Woman Power in Entrepreneurship’. The three ladies – renowned Art Promoter and Founder of Ati Art Gallery, Ms. Poonam Sarin; Ms. Anu Lall, Founder and Director of Snartak IT Solutions; and Ms. Runjhun Gupta, the young Founder of ‘Dance Addiction’ and ‘Zipout’ – recounted their inspiring stories to the management students of Jaipuria Noida. The message they drove home was that there are no obstacles to a willing mind.
Ms. Poonam Sarin spoke about her life and how she cultivated her interest in painting after getting married to a commercial pilot at the young age of 19.
“The advantage, of course, was that I got to see and appreciate the various art and cultural centres of the world, including the Louvre at Paris,” recollected Ms. Sarin for the benefit of her audience at Jaipuria Noida. “I started out as a consultant with an art agency in Delhi about 18 years ago, before starting out on my own.”
Ms. Runjhun Gupta, just 28 years of age, with an Executive MBA in Finance from IIM Kolkata, has always been a passionate dancer. Today, her firm links up with numerous corporate houses for centrally organised dance classes.
“Having been a part of the corporate world for more than 5 years, I understood that dancing could be a fantastic stress-buster for all kinds of professionals as it had been for me,” recalled Runjhun Gupta in front of the youngsters of Jaipuria Noida. “It was with this conviction that in 2009 I decided to start ‘Dance Addiction’, and ‘Zipout’ a little later.”
Ms. Anu Lall pointed out that over and above the challenges of doing business in India, like delayed payments, procedural delays, documentation, etc., women entrepreneurs have to face numerous mind-set challenges as well.
“Even prospective boyfriends/ husbands think you would be headstrong and aggressive, even before you’ve met them, just because you are running a company.”
Ms. Poonam Sarin seconded this view, saying that it took a long time for her to convince her family to allow her to follow her passion. “Time and age matures the family as well as the husband,” she concluded.
The sessions with guest lecturers were followed by a poster-making competition on the theme of ‘Creative Business Ideas’, organised by the E-Cell of Jaipuria Noida.Read more
