India is the country which has a flower full of entrepreneurs emerging from all areas who are making the country to grow through developed country.

Petrin defined entrepreneurship as a force that mobilize other resources to meet the unmet market demand, the ability to create and build something from practically nothing and the process of creating value by pulling together a unique package of resource to exploit opportunity.

In his words APJ Abdulkalam "empowering women is a prerequisite for creating a good nation. When women are empowered society with stability is assured. Empowerment of women is essential as their thoughts and their value system lead to the development of a good family, good society and ultimately a good nation. But women entrepreneurs in India are facing problems. The most general problems which a women entrepreneur faces is the non-cooperation from her husband (or) close family members majority of the time the family members do not motivate them. Besides they face other problems like mobility constraints, dual responsibility, low managing ability, risk bearing ability, lack management skills, less promotional ability, scarcity of raw material and finance are the another problem faced by the women entrepreneur. The standard of technology used by the women entrepreneur is qualitatively low; they are poor in technical knowledge transportation difficulties, improper power supply and telecommunication are some of the other problems faced by them. Marketing problem is the biggest problem faced by them. First women don't have general property on their own name to use that as collateral security for obtaining loans/funds from banks and other financial institutions, lack of education. In India 40% women are still illiterate is the root cause of socio-economic barriers. Women also countenance the conflict of performing of home role as they are not available to spend time with their families. Lack of confidence, physically powerful outlook, labour problems. One cause should be gender stereotype that reduces women self confidence, especially in male dominated technical field (JC MCarathcohoon), have no relevant experience than man (Stevenson) lack of professional interaction, lack of adequate training.
