We have initiated the Network For Enabling Women In The Start-up Ecosystem (NEWSE) as a network to substantially impact the ecosystem for women start-ups and entrepreneurs. This is in line to further our mission of increasing the pool of women in leadership roles and to work with our vision to help build and facilitate the  ecosystem for promoting women’s entrepreneurship and enabling women founders and business owners.

As we go forward, we are really looking forward to this platform changing the landscape for women wanting to succeed as entrepreneurs in India!

NEWSE membership comprises of current leaders and influencers in the entrepreneurial space; investors, mentors, entrepreneurs, support groups etc.
