Digital Women Awards 2020 celebrate women who are choosing digital as a means to turn entrepreneurs.  With innovation, tech and digital tools, women are setting up small and scaled business across the digital business spectrum. Women are creating businesses of the future not just with prudence, but also with empathy. Digital Women Awards presented by Google puts the spotlight on ground breaking work of female entrepreneurs.

COVID-19 may offer opportunities for many to go from job seekers to job creators. While it won’t be easy it promises to open new avenues especially of those for remote working models, a shift towards digital versus physical interactions, all of which have the potential to level the playing field, especially for women. As per a Bain survey, women have been quick to react to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Fifty-four percent of the women we interviewed have already changed their business model in response to COVID-19, and another 24% plan to make a change by December.”

Against all odds, women are bringing alive ideas for a new India with breakthroughs in digital and tech, transforming their lives and the nation’s potential.
