About the Programme

According to the Sixth Economic Census released by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, women constitute around 14% of the total entrepreneur base in India i.e. 8.05 million out of the total 58.5 million entrepreneurs. The key challenges faced by women founders, according to the same survey, are similar to the ones faced by men-led start-ups such as go to market strategies, stronger customer retention skills, and digital marketing and data management skills.

We believe that technology is for everyone, then why limit its production and development on the grounds of gender? WE is to encourage and build the women entrepreneurs to become leaders, inspiring the coming generation.
