WOMEN ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM (WEP)

Unleashing Talent: Breaking Barriers + Pushing Boundaries

The program is structured to sharpen the business skills of the women participants and to generate confidence in them for creating purposeful financial structures and leading successful businesses.

About Program

The potential of women entrepreneurs remains largely untapped with many lacking access to the financial services, skills and opportunities they need, to become successful business owners. Improving opportunities for women to earn and return income spurs economic growth and fosters a more inclusive and fair society, which is fundamental to sustainable growth and building more equitable societies. The program is structured into 9 modules and crafted exclusively for women. It aims to facilitate women entrepreneurs who have the ambition to start and transform their small businesses into thriving enterprises.

This program caters to women who want to reignite their passion for doing and leading businesses, with proper direction.

The School was established to assist family-owned firms to be in line with professional organizations. Being pioneers in the segment for more than a decade, we understand the emerging needs of family-run businesses in the growth and emergence of India as a strong nation. With an alumni base of 4500 plus entrepreneurs from the family business background, in the last 21 years, the School has taken serious initiatives and has developed expertise in Family Business and Entrepreneurship Management. The School focuses on understanding and respecting every culture and values system existing in Indian markets, and brings in transformation by becoming a part of the family, thereby actually doing mentoring and handholding.
