A program to scale your social venture
Deadline:15 February 2020
Only 25 percent of social enterprises in India are led by women. Women entrepreneurs are often subject to discrimination from their families, communities, and investors when compared to male peers. This issue is even more acute for women because social entrepreneurship can be stigmatized as being unprofitable.
Amani Institute, ANDE, and the U.S. Consulate have joined forces to provide an inaugural class of 40 women social entrepreneurs across India with the leadership and management skills that will result in scaling their businesses. They aim to facilitate the creation of a formal network across India called the Indian Women Social Entrepreneurs Network (IWSEN) of which the first class will be the founding members.
- Women entrepreneurs with organizations that have been around for two years
- The organization should have generated at least 15 lakh or more revenue either in 2018 or 2019
- Specifically looking for social entrepreneurs who have not had the opportunity to benefit from a structured learning process to build their organizations.
