Ludhiana has always been a business hub of small-scale industrial units which produce industrial goods, machine parts, auto parts, household appliances, hosiery, apparel, and garments. Ludhiana is Asia's largest hub for bicycle manufacturing, most of the top Indian woollen apparel brands are based in Ludhiana. Even the World Bank has ranked Ludhiana as the city in India with the best business environment in 2009 and 2013. However, when one looks for women entrepreneurship ecosystem in Ludhiana, it’s rather non-existent. There is no organised body to help women professionals, entrepreneurs and wannapreneurs in their specific struggles. To support women, GWN Ludhiana chapter was launched in March 2017 to provide a network of like mined professionals, entrepreneurs for mentoring, training and networking.
