The IndUS Entrepreneurs (TiE) has launched TiE Women to promote entrepreneurship among women. The initiative, which was to be launched at an event last week, was kicked off through a webcast from Hyderabad, owing to Covid-19 concerns.

To start off, TiE Women has called for a $100,000 challenge. “A series of chapter-level start-up support programmes for women entrepreneurs will be conducted, culminating in a regional competition to be held on June 12,” said Sridhar Reddy TiE Hyderabad President and Chairman and Managing Director of CntrlS DataCenters.

Four finalists will be selected, including a Chapter winner and three runners up. The chapter Winner would get an opportunity to attend a fully paid entrepreneurship boot camp in India.

This will followed by a sponsored trip to the TiE Global Summit scheduled to be held in Dubai in December 2020. “The winner also gains a chance to win an equity-free fund of $100,000 for her business pitch in Dubai,” he said.
