Seven women have made it to the Fortune India's first '40 Under 40' compilation that lists individuals who have managed to grow an idea into a profitable business.

The list comprises entrepreneurs and professionals aged 40 and less as of December 31, 2013.

'This is a listing, not a ranking,' Fortune India said, adding that scions of business families were not included.

The criteria for selection include growth in business (market share or revenue) and where growth rates were similar, emphasis was on profitability; those who executed a business model or innovation to grow in a tough market, who have reduced the per unit cost of delivering a product or service, scaled up an idea; were able to raise capital in a difficult market, or find profitable exits, Fortune India added.

The individuals in the list belong from diverse sectors, although there are more tech startups than others.
