Nikita Luther, Brand Ambassador, Natural8 India

Throughout my journey in both the realm of poker and leadership, I have personally witnessed the profound impact of female leadership on business growth. In the competitive world of high-stakes poker, where strategic thinking and calculated risk-taking are crucial, being a woman has amplified my capacity to lead effectively. The diverse range of experiences that shape a woman, along with her unique perspectives on the world, have proven to be invaluable assets in driving success. In fact, they have provided a distinct viewpoint and approach that is essential for achieving success. Whether it involves leading a team to victory or mentoring aspiring players, I have observed how diversity in leadership encourages innovation, collaboration, and ultimately, expansion. My own experiences underscore the significance of empowering women in leadership roles across all sectors. When women are given opportunities to lead, businesses flourish, and barriers to success are dismantled. In India, young women are challenging norms and redefining perceptions by venturing into gaming, a domain traditionally dominated by men. As they pursue their aspirations in this dynamic field, they bring with them a fresh outlook and an unwavering passion for gaming that transcends gender boundaries.


Shweta Baisla, CFO & Wholetime Director of Sona Machinery Ltd

As a woman in the world of entrepreneurship, I believe that our strength lies not only in breaking glass ceilings but in building bridges of opportunity. Each venture we undertake is a testament to our resilience, creativity, and unwavering commitment. As the CFO & Wholetime Director of Sona Machinery Ltd, I am not just navigating balance sheets; I am scripting a narrative of empowerment and success. Let every woman’s journey in entrepreneurship be a story of fearlessness, innovation, and the unyielding belief that we can shape industries and inspire generations.


Mugdha Pradhan, CEO & Founder of iThrive, a Pune based health & wellness startup

As a woman entrepreneur leading iThrive, I’ve prioritized creating a business grounded in nurturing, empowerment, and alignment with purpose. Unlike the aggressive, hustle-driven culture often seen in male-led businesses, I’ve chosen to focus on holistic well-being for myself and my team. While some may prioritize growth at any cost, I believe in a more sustainable approach that honors mental, emotional, and physical health. Women-led businesses bring a unique perspective, valuing purpose-driven work and embracing a more harmonious, creative approach to growth. By staying true to our feminine essence and rejecting outdated paradigms, we’re reshaping the landscape of business success, consciously shifting away from patriarchal capitalist norms toward a model that prioritizes balance, purpose, and well-being. A model driven by the energy of Love and Care.


Yashna Garg, Chief Marketing Officer, Zeon Lifesciences Ltd

As a woman from a non-science and non-marketing background, I used to face doubts and underestimates. But instead of letting them define me, I chose to defy them. I soaked up knowledge like a sponge, embraced collaboration like a conductor leading an orchestra, and used my unique perspective to drive innovation. Today, I see a wave of women entrepreneurs and working professionals redefining success on their own terms. We are the architects of a more inclusive future, where diverse voices and perspectives are celebrated and empowered. Let’s continue to rewrite the narrative of success, one bold step, one brilliant collaboration, and one positive impact at a time.
