The new wave of ‘vocal for local’ has proven to be a boost for Indian entrepreneurs. It has promoted local businesses and given customers the ability and motivation to shop with ease. This rebranded version of ‘Made In India’ has our support, and every week, TC46 spotlights small businesses and ventures you can champion and support easily through online and offline purchases.
What we absolutely love is that women have come out of the shadows of oblivion, and how! They are making their presence felt everywhere and have made headway into male-dominated spheres that were once considered to be out of bounds. One such challenge is entrepreneurship.
This week, we’re cheering on three women-led small businesses that deserve your attention. Check them out!
