The course will be beneficial for: –
women who are students,
women who are planning to begin a start-up,
women who are already Small-scale/Micro entrepreneurs and seeking growth,
women who are housewives and intend to start a business,
women who are mid-career professionals and want to shift from employment to entrepreneurship.
Aspiring women entrepreneurs, nascent women entrepreneurs, women entrepreneurs seeking medium-growth in their businesses, women from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds across all age groups regardless of educational qualification and experience shall apply.
Despite the steady improvement, women are still under-represented among the population of entrepreneurs. Moreover, research says that women entrepreneurs tend to have dissimilar motivations and intentions in entrepreneurship than men. The challenges that women identify in starting a business include discouraging social and cultural attitudes, lower levels of entrepreneurship skills, greater difficulty in accessing start-up financing, smaller and less effective entrepreneurial networks that dampen women’s entrepreneurship. And that is why an Entrepreneurship Course is required to be designed exclusively for women as the opportunities, challenges, and measures to cope with those challenges are unique for women entrepreneurs.
This course aims to facilitate Entrepreneurship by providing the right guidance for all aspiring and nascent women entrepreneurs so that a cadre of women entrepreneurs is empowered to strengthen the socio-economic development of the country.
