TiE Global (TiE Inc) has announced the launch of the “All‐India Road Show on Women’s Economic Empowerment through Entrepreneurship,” a new programme to unleash value creation amongst aspiring young women in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in India.

This initiative has received funding support from the US Mission in India, US Department of State.

Seema Chaturvedi, Chairwoman of Project Airswee and a former member of TiE Global’ s Board of Trustees, in a statement said, “Empowering potential women entrepreneurs is a great way to boost economic growth. A programme that promotes an entrepreneurial mindset by providing women with the knowledge and tools of an entrepreneurial possibility can unleash dreams of growth and value creation with a very significant multiplier effect.”

Under Project AIRSWEE, TiE Global will conduct workshops in Coimbatore, Warangal, Jaipur, Nagpur and Durgapur.

The programme will enrol 25 aspiring women entrepreneurs in each city and these 125 mentees will then be introduced to India and US based mentors, who will guide the participants on various aspects of entrepreneurship and to develop some of their ideas into sustainable businesses. All 125 participants will be invited to join TiE’s robust eco-system as members.

Venkatesh Shukla, Chairman of TiE Global noted, “We are very appreciative of the support provided by the US State Department. TiE’s focus is on generating and nurturing our next generation of entrepreneurs.”
