“Women Entrepreneurs get less funding”

Kriti Aggarwal, Director of StoreHippo, in an interaction with DQ Channels magazine gave the following inputs:

The Challenges of Being a Woman Executive in a Top Role:
It is a challenge to maintain a work-life balance. I revere work and at the same time wish to focus on my family and home. It is a challenge to maintain my emotional balance in order to avoid a clash with busi- ness functions.

Educational Background:
Masters in Textile and clothing

Family Background:
A business class family with roots embedded in ethics, loyalty, and firm commitment to work along with a practical cum professional outlook.

Working in Male-Dominated Field of IT: 
At times it is a challenge since some men are still not ready to accept women at higher ranks/position. It hurts their ego and traditional out- look.

Does a Glass Ceiling Exist?
Yes. It does. Women entrepreneurs are not looked upon highly by many men and they are given less funding by investors/banks.

Hobbies:
Reading, Yoga, Cooking, walking.

Future Plan:
To play a more constructive role in my business concern and also do CSR activities.
