I finished reading this beautiful graphic novel featuring 20 women entrepreneurs and their success stories. It has stories of women who fought to the world and took a step ahead for their dreams. I loved the way it is explained with creative illustrations.
WE (Women Entrepreneurs) Mean Business is an anthology of graphic narratives by and of twenty inspiring businesswomen from across India. Based on extensive interviews conducted over a year, these visual adaptations try to capture their life stories as the women chose to tell them. Each narrative is the result of an iterative process involving the protagonist, writers and artists who have co-produced this work.
These are stories of women doing: creating, strategising, accessing spaces, scaling up, networking, wresting freedoms, stumbling, seeking support, and enabling others along the way. All of them push boundaries, and they mean business.
These stories are unheard of and inspiring. It has stories of @zainabraj07 the founder of RR Steels, Rajasthan, Elizabeth Yambem founder of Dweller Teas, @dwellerteas Manipur,@saka_shailaja_rojas founder of Roja’s Industries, Telangana @nengneithem9 founder of Runway India and many more.
Hats off to the artists who describe their stories in such a creative way. Each story is short and to the point, and the way it is described is commendable. The stories we are never aware of.
The women who started from home with a small budget have now grown and the struggle they faced is explained here in a captivating way. Their entrepreneurial journey is super inspiring.
It’s a book you can introduce to the young readers. Well, this book also makes to a great Coffee table reads.
