Shahnaz Husain: Pioneer and Entrepreneur
Apr 24, 2013
Chairman & Managing Director, Shahnaz Husain Group of Companies
Shahnaz Husain's revolutionary business model and marketing approach is well-known throughout Asia. On April 24th, Shahnaz Husain will be at MIT to share the experiences and views of a female entrepreneur who has seen the growth of entrepreneurship in India, the increased role of female entrepreneurs, and the changing opportunities for people living at the bottom of the pyramid.
The dynamic growth of the Shahnaz Husain Group occurred concurrently with the rising economic strength of India, which gives Ms. Husain an insightful perspective on the role of entrepreneurship in emerging economies. While creating commercial success, Ms. Husain faced and overcame obstacles commonly encountered by female entrepreneurs working in low-income countries - experiences that provide her with a wealth of advice for female entrepreneurs. And in creating her business model, Ms. Husain offered employment opportunities to thousands of women who, for the first time, experienced the benefits of earning a wage. The empowerment of these women demonstrates the broad-based and positive impact of innovative entrepreneurship.
