Given the powerhouse of talent that India is, its burgeoning entrepreneurial ecosystem has scripted many success stories. However, there is a need to harness and channel a demographic that has been demonstrating its potential for innovation for years — women.
Sample this: Despite an 11-time increase in the number of women entrepreneurs in the tech space between 2018 and 2020, they secured only 1.43 percent of the funding deals during this period, according to a report.
To that end, the Indian Institute of Management- Bangalore’s (IIMB) incubation cell NSRCEL will help talented women entrepreneurs boost their venture journeys with the ninth edition of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women.
Launched in 2008, the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women is a global initiative that fosters economic growth by providing women entrepreneurs around the world with an education in business and management, mentoring and networking, and access to capital.
NSRCEL has uniquely adapted the programme for small and medium-sized enterprises and will be conducted online in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The training consists of three distinct modules of online sessions over a period of three months. The participating women entrepreneurs will get a chance to expand their horizons in subjects like accounting and finance, decision making and negotiations, marketing, strategy, networking, leadership and soft skills.
