Art Blend – Coffee with a Hobby aspires to create a space for artists as well as those with an artistic germ, coffee lovers or lovers of conversation. It is the ideal place for meeting up with friends, spending quality time with those you love, learning a new craft, painting with some caffeine kick, or simply to dig into that book you have been wanting to finish from a long time.

3. NS: What about other female entrepreneurs? Any tips for them
Prateeti Shukla: I think all female entrepreneurs are doing well these days, especially at urban places. Women have more will power compared to men, and if they decide to go ahead and start their venture nobody can stop them. They will do much better than men, as they are more dedicated and laborious.
So my tips for all female entrepreneurs would be to go behind your dreams, and when you succeed its altogether a different experience which cannot be expressed in words.
