Indian Women Entrepreneur Network (IWEN) to promote entrepeneurship in Indian women

When it comes to Indian entrepreneurship, the roster of current entrepreneurs as well as wanna-preneurs is dominated by men. Women entrepreneurs find it challenging to get a footing and to be taken seriously by others.

The Indian Women Entrepreneur Network (IWEN) aims to support women by encouraging entrepreneurship, helping them getting access to resources. It was started in Feb 2009, and currently has 50 plus members. The First of the monthly IWEN meets is being held on April 2nd, Thursday, 6pm at the Indiranagar Club, Bangalore.The goal is to connect with all the smart women on the IWEN, learn something new, and have fun ! There are also 2 surprise guest speakers, speaking on divergent topics of interest.

If you are a women entrepreneur or an aspiring to be one, do checkout their LinkedIn group and attend the meetup if possible.

In addition to the above group, TiE has also started an initiative – Stree Shakti in an effort to promote, encourage and help Indian women entrepreneurs.
