Priyadarshani Award for Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs

Federation of Indian Women entrepreneurs is dedicated to foster economic empowerment of women. Every year FIWE celebrates the success of women entrepreneurs who have achieved a mile stone in their respective field of work.

The award was given as an incentive towards the promotion and success of small-scale entrepreneurs in India as well as from SAARC countries.
