30 women entrepreneurs to be trained by IIT-Bombay for start-ups

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay and Women Entrepreneurship and Empowerment (WEE) under a new programme will train a group of 30 women entrepreneurs for start-ups.

The Society for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (SINE) at IIT-B has partnered with WEE to launch a 'Women Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Mentorship Program'. The programme has been launched with support from Department of Science and Technology and NITI Aayog.

The aim of starting this programme is to improve the visibility of women in the start-up ecosystem.

Poyni Bhatt, CEO of SINE, said, "It is a well-documented fact that the proportion of women entrepreneurs is really low, although there is no specific database to prove that. To address this, we have started the programmes, through which we will groom women who have ideas for start-ups."

"In August, we gave a nationwide call for applications. We have women from technology sectors, media as well as the social sector. They will be trained between October 7 and December 30. At the end, the best business ideas will be chosen by a jury and given a prize money of Rs 25 lakh," Bhatt added.
